As a 20 year veteran of the Norton Public School System, I was shocked and disheartened at some of the comments that I read concerning The Henri A Yelle School. As a member of this community as well, the educators do as much as possible with the limited technology and resources available. The parents and current Administration are excellent. Most teachers have advanced degrees plus take graduate courses on their own time and have succeeded in challenging their students as well as making each of the classes feel special and unique. If you ever have a question or concern, the staff at the Heni A Yelle is available. Before criticizing the staff and administration- I suggest you make a visit to this wonderful school. I am proud to be a Norton educator and I am willing to sign my name. Sara E Horton- Norton resident as well as a 20 year veteran of The Fourth Grade Level.

Principal does a good job as well as guidance staff. Some teachers are professional while others lack professionalism. My child did not thrive in this particular school. K-3 my child did fine, but once my child entered the Yelle School progress did not happen.

Okay. Let's just say this school isn't exactly up to date. The academics are average, extracurricular activites are extremely lacking! I'm not even sure they have any. Parent involvement: below average? Playground is amazing, especially the swings(: They used to have really cool paintings, but they painted over some of them. Overall, not the best school. Peace outt.

We love the Yelle. New Math and Science curriculum. New Superintendent and Principal. Excellent veteran teachers with advanced degrees challenge the students. Anti bullying program distict wide with zero tolerance. YMCA Club Yelle after school program. New foreign language courses and still a bargain school tax-wise.

The town does not support its schools at all. Norton has the lowest per capita school spendng in the state, and this school shows it. They have lost two days this year due to gas leaks in the building, and the building occasionally has no heat. The teachers do what they can with extremely limited resources, and they range from very good to very poor, but the overall culture at the school is one where individuality and inquisitiveness are systematically crushed and the goal is for everyone to function at the same middle level. My child has been bullied by teachers (yes, teachers) for being 'too ambitious' and for using 'big words'. The overriding message sent by this school is 'Fit in, don't try too hard, and certainly don't stand out'.
