I am very pleased with Principal Dillon, Mrs. Gaye Atkinson and Ms. Shantel. My daughter is in 1st grade at Otken Elementary in McComb, MS, and everyone has worked together and diligently to consistently push the education of my child. I see continued improvement in her reading and math skills. And she is excited on a daily basis to go to school. The physical education is exceptional as well at teaching healthy habits. Education, administration, and staff are top-notch.
Awful awful awful. No music no art... the statistics are staggering. Where is the money going and who is running this school? They get over 9000 per child per year and the kids are still failing and all the teachers quit year after year? It only costs half that to send a child to a private school for a year a few blocks down the road.
Otken is a top notch school. The staff provide a creative, loving, encouraging environment, and my children have thrived there. It is by far the best school in our county. The principal is the most outstanding I have ever met. I highly recommend this school.
