Our Story

A group of teachers sat around a table at Elm Place Middle School in Chicago trying to work out why their student wasn’t succeeding, triangulating student data that lived in just as many platforms and gradebooks as there were people in the room.

One of those teachers was Chris Hull – and he knew there had to be a better way.

“Everyone at Otus is so willing to support and answer questions. Otus makes you feel like you’re it. You’re the focus.”
