Imo, no.
Most bettas don't make good tank mates, especially with nippy fish.
Danios can be nippy as well as tetras who aren't in proper schools.
Your friend has a few issues that may cause trouble.

1) The tank is already overstocked.
2) Tetras do better in proper schools. (However, there isn't enough room in the tank to fill out the schools).
3) Otos do better in groups.
4) Silver dollars get too big for that size tank and also do better in groups.

I agree with all of Lucy's points as well. The science project makes sense but you guys should either get larger tanks or send some of the fish to your LFS's.

As others have said you have some rearranging to do. Pick a few of the species you want to keep (not the silver dollars) get rid of the rest and build up the schools you do want so not only is your tank better stocked but the fish are happier.
