Otero Elementary School Ratings & Reviews

I would say this school is bad right now. I had an awesome experience with this school since my child was in kindergarten but now the school is currently all over the place.. They ring the bell at 8:15 for people to start walking their kids to class but expect everyone in class by 8:20 it's impossible when you have parents and students walking through a small hallway not to mention they only have one door open.. I really hope they get it together, they were honestly good with the 8:35 start time and the bell rang at 8:15 it gave everyone enough time.. This school was awesome and now I have no idea what's going on now..

We were new to the area and accidentally got registered to this school and not our neighborhood school. At first they made a big deal about it like I was trying to "sneak" my kid in there because their rating was 2 points higher than our neighborhood school. So I had to forward emails to prove they are the ones that registered my child there, not me. We have not had any serious issues in any prior school until we came here. In the 8 months that my child was at this school they suspended him (out of school) over 8 times! He's 7 years old with ADHD! If you send your kids here you better hope they like them because when they don't they will make your life and your child's life a living hell.

My youngest child has been going to this school for two years. Kinder and now first grade and both years have been great! He has had negative interactive situations this year but the staff (everyone from his teacher, to the Principle) has been very supportive and even added measures to take for my child when these incidents happen. I hate that we have to leave in the middle of the school year when the progress is really helping my child. The academics are great as well. The staff knows all of the students, and everyone is greeting upon coming to school daily. I have really enjoyed my kids (oldest went last year and now in middle school) going to this school both years.

Although the staff at this school seem to have the best intentions, they seem overly stressed. It shows in the way they interact with our children. The things I have witnessed in this school were both disrespectful and demeaning to the students. This will be our second year with Otero and I hope to see big changes that put the care and education of our students first. I encourage all parents to pay attention to what this school is doing for our students this year.

The guidance counselor at this school needs to go back to college and learn how to work kids that are not neurotypical. The administrative staff needs to take responsibility for poor choices, lack of challenging matieral being presented to students who are above grade levels, creation of a poor learning environment and stressing a child on the asd spectrum to the point they will leave the building.
