A few years ago, the Othello School District cut science, social studies and art out of the elementary schools to institute a two and a half hour reading program which has not increased our forth grade WASL reading scores. The 'Reading First' (K - 3rd) grant guildlines are used in all grades (K -6) and has our K - 3rd grade students spending more than half of their day 'reading' (which means phonics and language arts), not using books or the library in the reading program. The children in all grades (K - 6) who couldn't read before still can't read and hate reading now, and the children who could read before, don't want to either, because they are bored out of their minds.

Profile Completeness


Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.
