My daughter has been here for kinder and 1st grade and I am very pleased with where she is at in her education. Her teacher is amazing and if I could package her up and share her with other schools I would!!! Mrs Hawk goes above and beyond expectations. She sees each child as an individual and guides them to be the best they can be. She nurtures their strengths and helps them work through their weaknesses. I could not have picked a better teacher!! The 1st grade team at YSES are just out of this world.

My son just completed the first grade and after two years at Yellow Springs Elementary we could not be more pleased with the school. Despite the age of the facility, the entire staff does a wonderful job with the kids. Parent involvement is huge and the school leadership really encourages parents to get involved. Around Frederick, Yellow Springs is jokingly refered to as the best kept secret in FCPS and as the "Private" public school for the quality of the education our kids recieve. I could not recommend it stronger for great teachers, great principal and great staff.
