Mission & Vision

Mission & Vision Image
The mission of James Otis World Language Academy is to guide students to take ownership of their learning through reflective thinking, high expectations, and a commitment to achievement. Otis Elementary provides a balanced curriculum designed to meet the academic, cultural, and social-emotional needs of the entire student body.  Through our Personalized Learning initiative, students will engage in rich, relevant, and diverse learning experiences to grow into self-assured, open-minded, and inquisitive learners. All members of the Otis community are committed to grow as productive, caring, and responsible citizens.

The James Otis World Language Academy community will achieve our vision by cultivating a learning environment that fosters intellectual and social-emotional growth.  Through the Personalized Learning initiative, Otis will challenge our students to become critical thinkers while meeting their individual academic goals.  We aspire to develop parental and community partnerships in order to nurture a holistic learning environment and create life-long student achievement that will prepare our students for real-world experiences and higher education.

Otis Elementary is a World Language Academy in which students learn to speak and write the Spanish language with a focus on examining how people around the world carry out cultural ideas. The Otis World Language classes are designed to engage students in exploring the world at a deeper level through a combination of fiction and non-fiction sources. This is a challenging course of study for our students, but it also promises to lead them to integrate the skills they are building in all academic areas.
