My son, who is a special needs student, attended Yake Elementary. It's a wonderful and supportive environment all around. The staff were incredibly helpful and compassionate, giving their all to help every student succeed. Now, my daughter attends Yake and it's even better than before (which I didn't think was possible). They have an on-site reading therapy dog, Wall-E, who the kids simply adore, they are teaching different skills and techniques to help the kids learn how to self-calm and de-stress (such as Yoga and Breathing), and there are so many outlets for creativity and self-expression, it's just awesome. Yake is one of the best schools downriver.

I go to Yake and it is amazing, I have so friends. The staffs are so friendly and helpful. If you are in trouble they are always there for you. The students are really happy ( in my opinion) . Everybody is amazing I just hate leaving that school. If anybody want to find a new school, I would pick Yake.

I would have to agree with everyone that has posted a review. My son was new to the school coming from another state into 4th grade. I have noticed him more sociable, more friends, happier, and he is still doing good in school, straight A's and was asked to be a security guard going into 5th grade. You wouldn't of known he was going through his parents being divorced.

I loved Yake too, but my children are at Riverview Schools now (school of choice) this year. Brownstown Middle School is scary!

My boys absolutely love this school! They wake up every morning ready to go ... which says a lot to me as a parent.

We love Yake Elementary - the staff and parents are the best. Our second child attends now and we love it as much now as we did when our first child attended. We wouldn't choose any other school.

My two kids went to Yake and all I can say is this school is excellent. But change school district before middle school and up.

This school is absolutely great. If you are looking to send your child to public schools make a note of this elementary school. It is situated in the best possible location downriver between woodhaven and trenton. This school will prepare your child for a successful career as a student. Do what ever you can to get your child into this elementary school it stands out as the best in the area. The students that attend a great and the teachers are also outstanding. Like I said do whatever you can to make it possible for your child to attend this school.

Yake is a great school, the teachers and staff work with you to help your child learn and have the best experience they can. I have had 2 daughters go threw Yake, 3 daughters are there now and one more daughter to go threw when she is of school age. I can not say enough good things about the staff at Yake, it is not just the classroom teachers, but the specials (music, art, gym, etc) staff, librarian, secretary, principal, and even the lunch ladies always have a smile on there face and our ready to help your children learn. The 'expect the best program' they have going on is a positive program for the kids. We even do it at our house. It works. I would recommend Yake to anyone looking for an elementary school to be involved in and that is for helping your children achieve success.
