As far as discipline -the same infraction, in the same classroom, on the same day by different students results in different consequences. Students should be held accountable for their actions, but the rules should apply universally - not showing preferences. Teaching has become a lost art here, there is no concern or goals for learning. Some of these children have failed two or three times - it is easier to fail them than to teach them. I have seen better teaching and consistency in all areas at large urban schools. Yes - we are involved parents.

There is not enough focus on teaching and no consistancy in rules. No communication from teachers and just not a pleasant school at all.

There is something not right this year in the middle school. Teachers who teach more than one subject... not good.

The school has great administration and faculty. They strive for constant improvement. Every teacher, the principal, and every staff member I have met are great and really care about the students and their needs. This is great small town school

Florida Writes grades came in yesterday, and Yankeetown School has proven how successful it is. Great teachers! 100% of our students have passed the Florida Writes test with a 3.5 or better. Only 10 middle schools in the state can claim that.

I just read the posting below, and I think this person is clueless. Yankeetown got an A, and did better than most schools in the area. Maybe this person should get better informed. There are some extra-curriculars, and there is also music. Clueless!

One of the worst schools we've been to. I was very dissapointed in the performance of the school based on the student/teacher ratio. Test scores reflect the quality of the education...not the greatest. Small town, little money for extra-cirriculars. No art, no music, no sports. Not much to offer in my opinion.

YTS offers small class room size which can equal more teacher time with each individual student. This increases the academic levels for all grades. As a mother of four children I feel that Yankeetown does indeed prepare the students for a higher education for their upcoming high school years. Truly it would be nice if Yankeetown could offer high school education. I hope maybe in the years to come that will be an options for our kids in this community. The sports activities are wonderful. I do hope that some of the old coaches would get back involved! Mentoring is powerful, esp. with new coaches. The art department does not exist and I wished it did. However, the drama and music is a great treat at YTS. The parent involvement seems to be stepping up. Projects like this one is just one of the many benefits parents can enjoy. Thanks!

Yankeetown School, in my opinion, is one of the better schools in the area. Granted we don't offer other courses other than core acadmics (our size limits the amount of money we receive and the number of teachers we are allowed). We are consistently an 'B' or 'A' school. Our students come from various socio-economical backgrounds, and our teachers strive to give each child a foundation on which they can build on as they leave our school to head to other academic settings.

Caring and concerned teachers.It would be nice to have an Art and Music program, but money is always an issue in public education. One of the teachers has created a chorus,bringing her talents to contribute to the culture of the kids, which is a very good start.

Academics, There seems to be so much focus on there % of over all academics that they have over looked any kind of Arts. I find and is known that without being able to use the other half of the brain that it builds up certain chemicals that are or are not released and can cause many alments; both physical, and mental.
