Profile Completeness

BASIC

Want to improve this school’s profile? You can!

All schools on GreatSchools begin with BASIC completeness, which includes important information like contact details and test scores. It’s up to the school community to take the next steps. As a parent or community member, you can share what you know with other families by writing a review or answering a few questions about what the school offers. As a school leader, you can upload photos, describe school programs, and more with an Official school profile.

The completeness meter moves to INTERMEDIATE, then ADVANCED, and finally HONOR ROLL as you complete the following: 10 or more reviews, at least 1 photo, and 9 program questions parents find helpful.

Constant problems, overcrowded classes, my sons 3rd grade class was 30 kids! Too much negativity in the learning environment instead of positive reinforcement and rewards. My son dreaded going to school.

Such a great school! I have had one child attend Yost for 2nd through 4th grade, and I have two children attending currently. All of the teachers have been caring and very responsive to questions and concerns. My children have all been challenged to do their best and excel. My eldest was very well-prepared to move on to the intermediate school for 5th grade. The principal is very visible and involved with all the students. The PTO is active and sponsors several activities throughout the year. I agree with the previous poster that Yost mirrors the close-knit Duneland community in which it is located. I would definitely recommend this school.

My oldest child is a 2nd grader at Yost and we could not be happier with the principal and teachers at this school. She has had the most genuinely caring teachers for the past 3 years. The principal always greets the kids with open arms and knows a little something about each one of them. Yost has the feeling of a small close-knit community with very supportive parents. I am looking forward to sending my middle child to Yost next year!
