My child attended James Otis, and we both loved the school. The teachers were wonderful and extremely loving. The learning atmosphere, was very fun and educational. The principle and vice principle were great people who cared very much about there students. A few years ago they updated the outside part of the school and the playground area and it now looks beautiful. The involvement is great, because there are always things going on, whether its field trips, making plays or having music concerts. There is also a wonderful bilingual program that is offered for Spanish and Portuguese speaking children to learn to read and write in there home language. Our years at James Otis were priceless and I recommend this school for anyone.
