Do not send your kids to this school. There is a lot of bullying that goes on at this school. When bullying is reported the students get a slap in the wrist e.i. after school detention. The school will never suspend a student for bullying or being disruptive in the class. They are only concerned about money coming into the school via the state.The teachers are clearly burnt out because they cannot kick disruptive students out of their class. . I blame this on the principal who only seems interested in collecting a pay check, and doesn't want to know whats going on with the classes or the students because when there is an issues he informs parents to speak with the counselors who looked burnt out themselves.
Excellent learning for gifted students! My brothers are learning College math! This school is recommended for those who are gifted students.
This school is very amazing! STEAM Labs and the school is well organized. Students should go to this school. This school is meant to improve student average in her knowledge and skills, and fluent reading through proficiency. Successful making students smart and smarter. Homework is important, but the art of listening, focusing, and doing what the person is suppose to do is the best thing.
This school is very fun, and improves students to technology and calculating math with advance skills!
this school encourages students to learn with discipline. Which is a wonderful moon turning experience. Highly recommended for influence for high levels.
not happy at all..they don't give much homework, and i request few times for parent meeting personally with teacher, but they never schedules an meeting.....my child is gifted but since going to this school he is not improving.
I am going to Young Oak Kim and I think it's going to be cool. The teachers are nice.
Excellent school with so much support for student achievement and personal development. Lots of technology here, and the STEM Lab, Library, Dance Studio, and Rock Climbing Wall are very cool places on campus. It is a safe campus with a very dedicated staff. Students are fortunate to learn in single-gender classrooms and to receive so much STEM-oriented education. Highly recommended middle school!
Do not send your children to this school. The teachers are all wonderful, but unfortunately the staff does not know how to control the kids here. When a child makes a mistake they are only given a slap on the wrist. This school is known for it's fights in our community and how the staff just turn a blind eye. Avoid at all costs!!!
I started this school in 7th grade and it was a very new enviornment and experience. The staff welcomed the students and that was the start of a great school. The teachers are very friendly. YOKA is a very unique and diverse. Especially because the single gendered school and the rock climbing wall is a unique program.I have always loved helping and studying in the library with our excellent librarian Ms.Duff! Other fun programs including the STEM lab, library service workers (student volunteer in the school library) , and working/volunteering in the student store. I really like the teachers because they all helped me prepare for high school. The teachers are great! Like my algebra teacher Ms.Kim, science teacher Mrs.Gamez, and even my history teacher Mr.Tejeda,Ms.Kestin our awesome P.E. teacher and lastly my english teacher Ms.Turner! . They are all very welcoming and passionate teachers! Thank you for making it a wonderful experience at YOKA!
I believe the school is qualified to give students an adequate education and move them to high school
