The only good thing about this school is that it is within walking distance. My son was bullied and they minimized the situation.

The teachers don't trust the kids!! It bothers me, because I am a honest hard working student!! -.- smh... THe prinipal rmemebers EVERYONE'S name!! I love that. Sadly, he's leaving. I am unsure about our new pricipal. She has made no effort as Vice Principal to learn anything about the student. Our old pricipal, (this happened one time) would see you walking down the hall and ask you about choir or band. He was even wondering if I had recieved a solo. He made a true effort. He will be missed. When I leave GYS I don't think I will miss it. I hate wwwaaayyyy too many of my teachers, even though I have excelled greatly since elementary school.

I've had two children attend this school and a third one soon. The teachers are engaged and challenge the students. I'm very happy w/ the education my children are receiving.

I was speaking with a friend of mine whose child goes to Whittier school district middle school. and they have a really neat program called teleparent...where you receive a phone call from the class he is missing assignments in, showed up unprepared for class, was disruptive/disrespectful..etc..keeps you informed on a daily basis..I think this is awesome..no offense but the agenda program just does not work..ive been dealing with the agenda for 5 or 6 years now and it just doesnt work for student or parent,maybe for teachers...I think its something grace yokley should seriously look into...and parents can give their cel phone to prevent messages from being 'accidentally' erased...

As a parent of a child who attends this school, I have been involved in my child's academic education since he started school when he was four. He loves this school. I think he is enjoying his 7th grade year better than he did his 6th grade. It was a hard transition for him to go from one teacher to 7. He is doing a lot better this year and I am impressed by his grades and his willingness to participate in his classes. This year he tried out for the flag football team and made it. He is doing an awesome job this year.

It seems that the teachers are always absent and my kids always have subs. There isn't much teacher/parent contact and progress reports are always late getting out.

Unfortunately this school does not offer magnet program or recognizes gifted children. This is a big down fall for me in particular. They do have a great bible club. I think they should have more extracurricular activities.

Grace Yoakley is an okay school, but it has some down falls. There is not enough adult supervision in the school. Daily I see bad moral behavior that should be stopped. Also, the teachers favor the smarter students and there should be a gate program. The teachers are challenging. They have good food. From: A Student

School can offer more help to students, who are considered average. Honor roll students receive advanced work. Failing students receive help, but average students are not challenged to become greater.

I am a student at Grace Yokley Middle School, this school isn't the greatest school in the world but, I would send my child there. Although I dont think that they have enough disipline there. I also think there are racial issues, or just plain issues at that school. I think parents and advisors should really take the time to sort them out. Overall, Grace Yokley is a good, not great, but a good school.
