I would like to say thank you to Mr. Loehwing. He's a great shop teacher and he makes shop fun and always has us doing stuff.

Teacher effectiveness: Ineffective

They are horrible at getting their points across. Virtually none understand that to get a student to pay attention they have to be interested. its extremely difficult to be interested in something that bores them to sleep because the teacher does nothing but sit behind the desk and complaining about all the papers they hand out and have to end up grading.

Some of the shop teachers encourage their students to do better, and they do. But the teachers certainly don't.

A little. Its hard to respect another when they clearly don't respect you. Some of the teachers have a clear disrespect towards students

It doesn't. There is nothing fair about this school. Nothing makes any sense and it is far, far, far, from bring fair.

The lunches suck. Most of the teachers don't really seem to care about how their students do. it's all about the tests. Preparing for the tests. All they care about. They take out all the fun in the classroom and wonder why the students are on their phones all the time. But the students are great. the rest of the staff has little to no interest in the well being of the students unless the parents have issues.

My school is amazing, the staff is just great. Our Shop teachers(tech area teachers) are so helpful and understanding. I really think we get an amazing opportunity here.

I'm in the adult education part , everyone is professional and treat you as a person and not as a number.

This school has incredible technical programs and academics are on the rise (ever so slowly) however the violation of student rights by the staff here is so awful that I see it almost every day and have been a victim of it many times. Some teachers try to detain students in detention merely for not doing homework, nothing illegal is going on but they are as close to the edge as you can get with rights violation as I have ever seen in my life anywhere. School should not feel like an unconstitutional checkpoint at any point in time but it is commonplace at YCST. Bottom line: go to the school to get your technical certifications it's not bad, but be ready for a bumpy ride!!
