Ottoson Middle School Reviews

3 reviews
We're really happy with the experience we had at the Ottoson. My child found the school to be welcoming, the children to be friendly and non judgemental, the clubs and extracurricular activities to be outstanding, they had an excellent music program as well, and the real standout was the teachers.

All of my child's teachers were dedicated, really kind and just amazing educators. My child felt emotionally secure at OMS. I think it's an excellent school that really puts the kids first. The building could use an overhaul but my child really enjoyed her time at the Ottoson, and she will really miss her core teachers, her art and computer science teachers, the orchestra director and the librarian. It is a great school.

This school is a good fit for my daughter. The classes are fairly small, about 20ish, and she is known by her teachers. The academics are challenging and there are various levels in each subject in order to find one that is just right for your child. Teachers have fairly high expectations of the students but also seem to have realistic expectations based on age/grade level. There are many activities and sports in which students can participate if they chose.
The food here is absolutely horrible and the way they seperate students in cluster and having no classes with their friends really hurts peoples friendships
