    WELCOME

    Welcome to Ottewell School!

    We are the home of the Titans; where excellence is the standard.

    Ottewell School has been the heart of the Ottewell Community for many years and even though the neighborhood has grown, our school continues to flourish! The reason for this success is the positive school culture and high academic standards that are in place at our school today.

    Our culture of respect and responsibility has been the driving force behind the high academic achievement and model citizens we are proud to graduate from Ottewell School. Our commitment to technology as a tool for learning, high level of academic support for all students, highly effective teachers, and superior extra curricular programming are what bring students here from all corners of the city.  We provide supports and programs that pave the way for all of our students to succeed not only in their academics but in alternative programs such as the Arts, Computers, Construction, Outdoor Education and Food Studies.

    We are a school that also believes in deepening our students’ understanding of our District’s Cornerstone Values of Equity, Collaboration, Integrity, and Accountability. We are able to accomplish this through a variety of events and programs which increase our students’ awareness of citizenship and being a contributing member of our community. Ottewell has also been the leader in promoting health and wellness for all students and staff.

    We pride ourselves in our extracurricular activities, from Robotics to the Cheer Team, from Athletics to our award-winning Band Program; our students will never have the excuse that there is nothing to get involved in. Our dedicated and professional staff truly care about the students and voluntarily give up lunch time each day to provide students with extra academic support in every subject that we offer. Students are able to use these resources to improve in the areas in which they have challenges. We believe that all students can improve their understanding and by promoting a Growth Mindset, we will be able to ensure that all of our students will have every opportunity at success in their future endeavors.

Parking in Front of Ottewell

This is a reminder to parents that the bus drop-off area in front of Ottewell must be left free of cars AT ALL TIMES. If you are dropping off or picking up your child, you may not stop in the area designated for buses. The safety of our Special Needs students is at risk when this occurs, especially during the winter months. Please know that the EPS have been notified of this situation and may be out ticketing cars. Also, please note that it is unsafe to make U-turns in front of the school. We are concerned for the safety of all our children.

Thank you for your attention to this matter.
