I personally believe the education is wonderful at C.H. Yoe High School. Just like any other high school we are a high spirited school that loves sports but that is not the school's only focus. There are many academic clubs and classes for advanced students, there is even dual credit course which a lot of schools do not even have. I am glad I go to such a wonderful all around school! Also, the schools offers tons of scholarships for their graduates!

All anyone really cares about is the sports there and coaches don't really teach the classes, the teachers there don't really prepare you well enough like if you wanted to get to a top college you would have to do a whole lot of on you're own learning and preparation, there are only like a handful of actual good teachers, I'd like to see more things done with the education INSTEAD of sports.

Cameron Independent School District is a great place to raise your children in. Not only do they have the best quality teachers but they also have the best facilities in the area. All academic programs are aimed at helping the students succeed toward their future. The extracurricular activities are just as great and are fun for the students who are involved. Cameron Yoemen are the best that there will ever be so I would recommend these schools to anyone who is looking to settle in the area. Dont listen to others who say otherwise. Many students that have graduated from Yoe High School have gone off to college and are now working their way up. Look at Mr.Mclane, didn't he get a great education from C.H. Yoe back in the days, well now it is even better with all the technology and the higher education provided.Great Safety Too!Cameron Schools aref

My daughter is currently a senior at Yoe High School and I must say that she loves it there. She is very involved in the many extra-curricular activites that are offered by the school. Also, the teachers are very understanding and easy to speak with when there is a problem. Also the traditions of the Yoemen instill great pride and respect into the kids. I also have another daughter who is a graduate from Yoe high school and went on to do very well at Baylor University. I would recommend this fine high shcool to anyone.

This school is more interested in producing a good football team each year. The rest of the student body is useless unless they pay to see the Yoemen play each Friday Night. The Jerry Springer people run this school, it is not about helping students achieve high academics.

Yoe high is a great school. My daughter is a senior there. She is involved in many activities that they offer there. The dress code there is outragious though. The teachers there are great and are willing to help anyone.

Cameron is a great place to attend school, no matter how hard you try or where you go there is always going to be a problem. This year they are getting a brand new school, and better technology. For those who have talked about the school or rated it not so good you need help, because I had a daughter graduate two years ago and she is doing very good. She attneds Texas A&M and is on top of her game, I couldn't be more proud of her and its all because of C.H. Yoe High in Cameron, Texas.

We left Cameron ISD in order for our children to receive a better education. The quality of teachers is poor at best and the administration is worse. Educating the children is not the priority at Cameron ISD; politics is the main focus.

I have two sons in Yoe high and my oldest son graduated last year. They have attended Cameron schools all their lives. I have always been happy with the schools, teachers and setting. They all three have received excellent educations and are all three very bright due to this fact. I would rate Cameron Yoe High as wonderful for anyone looking for a system in which to place their children.
