I am very pleased with Yeager after researching other middle schools in Douglas county. Principal Irving and the staff are committed to the students achieving excellence in a safe environment.

I moved here from Tennesseee and was looking at the schools here in the area.. I always check on the ranking and how well the school performs..I found Yeager Middle to be ranked in the lower mid category, but what I found really was a school that put education first and foremost.. The staff was outstanding and very hands on with thestudents, some even came in early to tudor, it was a very welcome option.. I chose to live in this area just so my girls could go to Yeager Middle...I was very impress with the staff, the school and the parent involvement, this is one of the best choices I made when moving here...I truly think my girls are getting the education they finally deserve from school....

Yeager has a very hard working staff. They have many programs to help student achievement. Teachers are willing to tutor students. There are a lot different opportunities for students to get help. It takes parents, teachers and students working with the administration to help students reach their potential.

Great school with supportive teachers and administration. Disgruntled parents are the ones expecting the school to raise their children...

Yeager is the worst school I have ever sent my daughter to. The school is worried more about the athletics department than the school work. Yeager needs to be shut down immediately. My daughter had a horrible experience there and I dont recommend this school to anyone. Dont move in Yeager district!

there is no discipline here and i am very dissapointed with its performance. i feel that if we were to get more people who believed in disciplining children this school would't be in such dire need of improvement.

I do not like Yeager. It is very unsanitary. The lunch is always cold and hard. We are supposed to get hot lunch. It is also unhealthy.We have fights at the school every week. the behavior is astonishing. The students curse at the teachers,bully others, and mess up the school. the teachers do nothing about it, and they half explain work. the administration is unwelcoming. They do not have extra actvities for us. We do not have many fundraisers and dances, so as a result the school is poor. the restrooms are awful.

i have not been here very long, but i have been here long enough to find out that there teaching methods are not good what so ever! they give us work and expect us to know how to do it by reading the derections. anyways its not a very good school..... the teachers cant dicipline anyone. when there is a fight in the hallways (like there is eery day!) the teachers can't stop them.

I agree. This has to be the most unorganized school. I have stood in the office for 20 minutes before someone ask me can they help. Then once you get their attention they forget your there... I have not been able to get ahold of teachers thru agendas or emails. All I can hope is they have another middle school built before my son starts middle school in a few years.

My children cannot wait to get out of this miserable excuse for a school. Administration cares nothing about students-only about school as a whole test scores {AYP). Parent involvement-well, just walk in and you will immediately feel unwelcome.

I think this school is lousy. No one encourages the extracurricular activites. Teachers don't do anything about students being bullied. The principal can't keep the school under control, there are fights about every week, which affects our learning environment. Some of us want to get an education. I can't wait for my last year to be over! I wouldn't recommend this school to anyone!

To put it simple: Yeager is NOT a good middle school. My daughter is in the 7th grade, and is an honor roll student thanks to her motivation, and my involvement as a parent. My son also attended this school last year. The teachers don t teach, rather they are pencil pushers. They give them tons of homework, and class work, while barely providing any hands on learning or thoroughly explaining new lessons. Not to mention, the school rarely provides books to take home. The principals are indeed no approachable as another parent expressed. I've come from a state where the school system was on another level, and cared about their children. The teachers were dedicated to teaching, and not just looking for a pay check with easy benefits. A vast majority of teachers are young, immature and inexperience. I'm definitely looking for a different middle school for my child to spend her 8th grade.

My brother and I both went to Yeager and t is really fantastic! But we have problems with conducting our actions and thier are problems with people skipping class but other than that there is nothing else. They really care about us students and they take the time to help us with before school tutoring and connections . It might not be as posh as Chapel Hill but it's something that gives students the time of day to learn. -lana Fontenot 7th grader YMS

This is the worst school I have ever put my child in. The assistant princapal for the 7th grade is all about singleing out certain children. As soon as this school year is over I am going to pull him out.

Hats off to Ms. Derricks, 6th grade math teacher! She truly cares about students' success. She spends long hours after school preparing for lessons, and does all she can to prepare students. She has really helped boost my daughter's confidence in math. Moving here from Louisiana, I was quite skeptical about some of the schools. I've been impressed by Yeager. My daughter seems to be happy and adjusting well to middle school life at Yeager. I only wish that the school would send home newsletters, or have a better website.

We have attended Yeager for 2 years. We are currently preparing for our final year! We would enjoy more opportunities to raise money for other extracurricular activities through fundraisers such as cheerleading. On the other hand, Yeager is also a very good school to spend the most hectic and emotional years of our youth. The teachers are very approachable in many situations. The gifted program gives many opportunities for field trips such as Disney World and Washington. We feel that there can be some improvements but over all we wouldnt want to be anywhere else! Its going to be hard to say goodbye!

I used to attend Yeager. I was in sixth grade when the school first opened, and every day I would come home miserable and angry. Often times I was bullied and no one would do anything about it. The school has poor quality extracurricular programs. They don't know how to properly control the students without being overbearing and intimidating. I'm very glad I was removed from Yeager, and I feel I'm doing much, much better now then I was then. -Bridget Surento-

The administrative team at YMS is very cordial and well respected. The following after school/extra curricular opportunities are offered at YMS: after school program, STAR tutoring, BETA Club, football, cheerleading, track, softball, basketball, SAVE Club, Student Council, and Step Team.

We have two boys, 11 and 13, in grades 6 and 8. Our 13y/o has been in the school since it has opened two years ago. This school was built in 'desperation' mode by the county due to explosive growth, and the poor planning of its layout reflects such. There are no outside 'fields' whatsoever on which to conduct PE or any types of extracurricular sports programs. The 'stage' is an embarassing offshoot of the cafeteria and after school activities are very limited. The senior administration (Principal and Vice-) are viewed by most students as unapproachable and are not very well respected. Office personnel are generally arrogant and not helpful in our few personal experiences. On the positive, they do offer a music program which is good.
