My child attended this school and he did not do well. He had some special needs and they were NOT meet. He was never given a chance because of the super high rate of teacher leaving this school. He is now in a new school and doing WONDERFUL. He has made the honor role and no longer hates school.

EM Yoder tries, but it is a test-driven school and it shows.Send kids here not here not to develop joy of learning, but to learn to temper that joy into the passive grind of worksheets. Forget hands-on-learning, creativity, breadth and cooperative learning. Yoder is a teacher-focused environment with quiet classrooms full of kids listening to the teacher,doing worksheets at their seats and worksheets at the centers. All three of our daughters' teachers claimed only 10min/hwk per grade level homework. All have assigned 3x as much each night (And my child is a top student). There is no Art teacher (nor real art instruction incorporated in regular classes), no foreign language instruction, no clubs. There is a great science teacher, but she can to classes occasionally, and a wonderful music teacher (who gives free lessons after school). I wish Yoder could teach the whole child, inspiring not deadening love of learning.
