James Otis Kaler Elementary School Reviews

1 review
When I was an employee at Kaler, I enjoyed very much working with children from all grades, especially pre-k. I even grew close with a few and continue to maintain contact as much as I can. The only change I would like to see is a more inclusive classroom environment for students with special needs, where these children are integrated in the classroom with their peers.
