This school is in the biggest ghetto of Lansing. It's like South Central LA... Garbage! Thank god it's now closed!
Teachers care about the kids, no matter what. And they stick together, not undermining each other.
Lack of adequate resources for both staff and students. Students ran the school, unorganized and inefficient.
I think Otto middle school is a very great and organized school. I think the staff has a great crontrol over the school and thats really important. I used to go to Otto but I moved if I have the chance I would come back in a heart beat. Keep up the good work you guys.
my daughter goes to Otto, she has been since 6th grade, she takes all honors classes and loves volleyball. her and I both love this school and the teachers in it. I also think it needs an update on the building. I'm very sad Mr.DOig has left but I have yet to meet the new principal.
It's dark and depressing and kills the spirit and love for learning that kids have. There are a few outstanding teachers there, but they are evenly balanced by others. Find an alternative!
