My grandson and I went to registration this past Monday. It was beautifully and efficientlly organized. Everything went smoothly. Any problems were quickly resolved. There were well informed students on hand to provide him a tour of the school to show him where his classes would be. Her name is Vivian. She was well-informed and gracious. I think this experience is the gold-standard for registration and orientation. No school could have done a better job. Not onlly that all students were treated with respect and courtesy. It was a great beginning for what I am sure will be a successful experience. Thank you! Delores Burris

Our school is very unsatisfactory with the exception of a few teachers. Our administrators have no sense of morality when it comes to protecting or helping students and often stand on the side of the aggressors rather than the victims. I am an honors student and I must say that the honors teachers do not disappoint, but there are no where near enough honors classes. I feel extremely unsafe at this school as the vice principal stated that it was okay for me to be harassed because students had told him things about me. Sad to say that there are only 3 teachers on that campus that keep me there and one of them retires next year. I would never suggest that any student be enrolled into this high school if they wish to have a bright future.

I have had 4 kids attend this school, starting in 2000. The administration has always been anti-child and anti-parent. There's is a pervasive, longstanding attitude of 'us against them. This community has a problem with nepotism and cronyism in all levels of government, from city to county, and is reflected in this school.

This school needs dramatic changes. Needs total change in administration. The principal and vice principal have totally alienated the staff, parents, and students. The schools morale is zero. Students are fleeing the district in droves to charter schools. This district needs a change in superintendent's also, isnt it time to have an educator rather than a retired military officer leading it. Also need to have a rule that administration at the district office and school can not have spouses that work for the district-- a huge conflict of interest.

I love that all of our teachers are all so involved in the student life, and most of them will do anything that they can to resolve something for their students.

Administration is inconsistnet and does not uderstand Ed. Code. Assistant Principals have no problem yelling at parents when a concern is brought up. Why are they in the office instead of supervising the students that are selling drugs or fighting. It is truly sad to see a school that has not had strong leadership in at least a decade.

YVHS is a school that needs funding and care. Right now the school overworks me and my friends to our limits. There are many expulsions per year and more needs to be done about teacher relations.

Yvhs has been one of the most disapointing school experiences of my life. There are not enough books to go around, they are so strict and caught up with the rules almost no education goes on. It is an uncomfortable place to be and definately not a good learning atmosphere. The clubs and after school sports and lame and have next to no funding. This school is so poor, the food is inedible, and the only learning done is to the test. The students on the most part are uninspired and are mearly getting through the day. Being there is a sad, lonely experience that leaves you overtired and frustrated
