Success, one student at a time
We inspire student success through high quality learning opportunities, supported by meaningfully engaged students, families, staff and community.
Supporting the Vision, Mission and Priorities are the District's cornerstone values of accountability, collaboration, equity and integrity.
At Ottewell School, personal excellence is the standard. We offer the regular junior high program and the Mandarin Bilingual Program as well as Challenge classes, Community Living Skills, and Behaviour and Learning Assistance. Students can also take French and Mandarin as second languages. Students develop reading comprehension and higher-order thinking skills and are encouraged to demonstrate good citizenship and high levels of achievement.
Ottewell serves a wide range of communities throughout the city, with Grade 7 students arriving from more than 27 elementary schools. We are a multicultural community that celebrates diversity.
