My two sons attend Yattiyr (1st grade and Pre-K). The faculty genuinely love the children and the families of the children are involved. My wife and I are both very pleased, because our boys aren't just excelling academically, but in character. The school emphasizes leadership, integrity and supporting a child's gifting, which my wife and I see reflected in a higher level of conscientiousness and confidence in our children. I highly recommend Yattiyr to anyone who is as interested in the kind of person their child grows into as they are in the academic success of their child.

My precocious son loves Yattiyr! He always runs into school knowing that he will be greeted by a big hug from Coach Katherena. She is a phenomenal teacher with genuine love for kids, and her passion to train the kids to love God and others permeate in all of the activities that they do. If you are looking for a Christ-centered, Spirit-filled school for your child, this is a great option.

Yattiyr stands out in excellence because of their dedication to build upon the unique qualities of each child and develop true leaders of integrity and faith! By teaching them about entrepreneurship, public speaking, money, serving, and spiritual development along with fundamental educational skills, Yattiyr helps parents to understand that whole life skills in the classroom are critical to refute the adverse effects of an entitled culture.

My boys absolutely love their school and have grown so much since they started attending a couple year ago. We've been to other schools that were just too rigid and program based and it was not a good place for our kids. My eldest was especially unhappy until we found Yattiyr. We knew it was the right place when we picked him up and he was all smiles on his first day. The teachers are amazing and do everything they can to provide a safe, nurturing environment. They have a faith-based curriculum that focuses on holistic education and this has been great for our boys.

Our family has been part of Yattiyr for three years now and it has been nothing but a great positive experience. The staff at Yattiyr Christian School are not only concerned about children's academic performance but they are also interested in developing the whole child (Intellectual, Spiritual, Emotional and Experiential). You experience such an environment of love and respect among classmates and the staff that really creates a safe environment for the children to develop to their fullest potential.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
