I love teaching at this school. The principal is very encouraging and positive. The test scores prove that teachers work hard to help students succeed. Students are all treated equally and fairly. Our school system has added music for part of the year, as well. My children attend the school and love it! It truly is a great place to learn and grow.

I am the proud principal of the best school ever. I have a seasoned faculty with over 400 years of teaching experience among us. We like what we do, who we work with, and the children we serve each day. Our parents support our efforts and together we keep the focus on the students. Check out more about R. L.

This school is outstanding! There is a new principal who has been in place for a year. She has done wonders! Thanks, Mrs. Thomas, for being an outstanding leader.

R.L. Young is a great school. Students are encourged to do their best and allowed the freedom to learn at their individualized level. Committed parents are an excellent part of the school's success. The parents are behind the principal, faculty and staff, and students by providing the support and financial help needed. Test scores from the SAT-10 are superb. Everyone at Young seems to be focused on the 'child'. What a great school!

My child has been going to this school for the past 5 years. I attended this school as a child myself. I have great concern that this school tends to cater to the child with a high academic learning level and the child with a lower level of learning seems to be left out. It seems that this school is partial to higher income children. My child has commented many times about how much better the 'rich' kids are treated vs the lower income students. I know this type of attitude exists in all schools, but R.L. Young has a really bad reputation in this area. I wish there were more equality amoung all students. It isn't the child's fault what income level they were born in. Also, I am concerned about security. It is very easy to just walk in the front door and go anywhere in the school without being questioned. This is a serious problem
