What makes the James Otis Elementary School unique?
The James Otis Elementary has a diverse and dedicated group of highly qualified teachers. Most of the Otis staff speaks two or more languages. We always end our year on a high note, our fifth & sixth graders' annual full-scale production in Spring 2023! This year's production is The Lion King.
The Otis is one of few select schools that employ a full-time Community Field Coordinator. This position plays a vital role in communicating with families on school policies and student progress.
Students enjoy a full complement of art, music, band, theater, science, spanish, physical education, health and technology. At the Otis, we believe that beautiful things are just as important as useful things. Our students sing, dance, play instruments and put on full scale musical productions.
