Welcome to Otay Elementary!

Otay School is one of 46 schools in the Chula Vista Elementary School District. The school was built in 1975 as ''loft'' design with all classes under one roof. Our school focuses on Social and Emotional Learning as the foundation for academic instruction. The instructional focus is on English Learner strategies for literacy. Teachers collaborate weekly while students get to attend Specialty classes. Every week, all students get 2 hours of Art, Music and PE/Dance. To further support student's emotional needs we have a full-time counselor who meets with students and supports teachers in their classrooms
