Very happy with YHS - My son graduated few years ago and he did great with no issues and now my daughter is a current student and averaging 4.0 gpa & playing sports. Teachers are receptive to students who approach them and counselors have been willing to assist is class changes when needed. Positive experience on my end.

The staff is wonderful and I love that they have free tutoring after school. I would recommend this school to anyone who asks about it.

YHS offers a lot of opportunities for enrichment. There is a well-rounded variety of electives. After years of emphasis on helping the underdogs (in Special Ed and ELL) the academic rigor has improved. Now, there are more challenging classes offered for stronger students. Students will be well prepared for college. Compared to other area schools, YHS has a more personal, safe & friendly campus. Yes, there are a few duds on the teaching staff, but overall, YHS teachers are smart,enthusiastic and positive role-models. The new principal is a winner!

yhs isn't a good school. There is way too much bullying and drugs. If your kid is good or even halfway decent, don't put them there. The teachers there are good, but they don't do anything about the kids.

Life Skills for Special Needs. The teachers all seem to love their students. I found the IEP very frustrating though. At the IEP they don't include all the teachers or psychologist in any of the IEP that I experienced. My husband and I requested simple things as allowing our teenager to be apart of golfing, band or other areas YHS offered and we were continually brushed off, or told no that didn't work out for them. I wanted my son to pick out his own extracurricular class and not be limited with 3 choices. I also wanted him to take an English class and they told me maybe maybe next IEP or maybe next semester. It never happened. I felt like he was held back. I would of rather my teenager take an extra english class with an assistant than crush plastics or play puzzles.

I can't even comprehend how someone could say there is no help. The teachers are phenomenal and most ARE available for you're assistance, although YES, they do hold you accountable. Tons of programs like writing workshops and peer tutoring are also provided at the students' convenience. YHS is incredibly supportive of a very wide variety of extracurricular activities and clubs creating tons of opportunities for students to be involved. It is truly a wonderful environment and I would recommend this school to anyone.

Is Terrible. For a special needs student is fails to meet IEP needs mostly by refusing to place needs in the IEP to begin with. THey are more interested in disapline, and attendance than education. Maybe if the children who have needs were learning something, they would want to be at school. The assistant principal refuses to listen to the parents!

This school is a great school with hardly any fights and bullying is hard to come by. Great school, great teachers, and great students. I am enrolled right now.

Opposed to other reviews, I believe this school is very supportive of its students. The school itself is ran efficiently and is able to fend off the chaotic nature of the district. I personally do not know why other reviews are claiming low scores and API growth when it out performs the 'golden school' of the area, Redlands East Valley. They are also quite supportive of extracurricular programs and do not throw all their funds at football as most other schools do. The school has high standards of its students and does not expect mere mediocrity. Finally, the school, I believe, is a very safe campus. In the two years that I attended, I witnessed at most 5 acts of violence. Also, because the campus is offset from the main road, the administration is able to control who enters and exits the campus. As a former student, I enjoyed Yucaipa High.
