Christian Ott Elementary School
Christian Ott was named a National School of Character in 2016. These schools are ones that have demonstrated through a rigorous evaluation process that character development has had a positive impact on academics, student behavior, and school climate. These schools become part of a network of Schools of Character that serve as models and mentors to other educators and hold their designation for 5 years.
We are the home of the Bear Cubs. Christian Ott takes pride in its rich history as the oldest elementary school in the Independence School District. We are committed to providing powerful learning experiences for all children in order to develop knowledgeable and successful learners.
