Horrible is a nice word for my experience with this school. They only seem to care about funding not the needs of the children. They always want to blame the parents or the child when the reality is they need to look at themselves.

My daughter loved school and love to read. Her reading improved so much over the summer (2013). However, since she started Yeager (September 2013), she started having self-esteem issues, from the first day of school they had a negative report in her binder, if she sits, stand, moved an inch to the left or right they complained. They stated we're working together but they have never included our input. She started doing poorly especially in reading, which I found odd. Whenever, I asked them about her academics they changed the subject back to behavior; they stated don t worry about the academics let us focus on the day to day behavior . This left me in awe because we're on the second grading period. I left a message for the principal/vice principal regarding her academics, six weeks later no one returned my call. The vice principal called me on 1/17/13 for the first time, again it was regarding behavior, I tried to voice my concerns, she accused me of raising my voice, and spoke to me as if I had a grade two education. I wonder about the great review here, because my experience at Yeager made me feel as if my daughter and I had stepped back 50 years.

Just send your kid to somewhere else. It is overcrowded, open plan school with lots of flaws

EXCELLENT. My daughter has gone to Yeager for 2 years and teachers are all happy to be there, the Principal is very visible (I have seen her interracting with kids during the school day - not just holed up in her office), music program is top notch, parent involvement is prevalent through fundraisers/PTO, resources for ESL and special needs, PE, the list goes on...truly is a great school. We are moving and Yeager has set the bar for the next school we will consider.

BEST ELEMENTARY school EVER! The teachers, staff, and principal are EXTRAORDINARY! Very active parents where most of the kids are Distinguished Honors or Honors participants. Yeager has great programs such as clubs that kids can compete in academically. we give RAVE reviews for their music, art, and P.E. programs from honor choir, the walk jog program, and community leadership opportunities. The advantages are too numerous to list here. The school is open classroom concept which for some kids may not work but gets the kids able to adapt to the workplace environment in the long run. Children that need their parent constantly may not like this school because the school really encourages students to be responsible for what they say and do. There are also many family activities planned like fundraising dinners, bookfairs (teachers dress as characters), science and math night, and numerous performances! A+++ to Yeager!

The BEST elementary school my children have ever attended, I was very sad when we was re-zoned! ALL the teachers are excellent her, I LOVE the choir teacher, wish she could have followed my daughter to middle school! My son left PK reading on an entry 2nd grade level! Can't beat that at all. MISS them all so much!

Both of my sons went to Yeager Elem and they loved it.. Unfortunately we moved and went to another school and they hated it. But thinking about moving them back to Yeager. The important thing of all this is my boys education and happiness.

Love this school and the teachers. Teachers care about the future of the students and my daughter adores all of her teachers since Kindergarten and now she is in the 2nd grade.

Wonderful elementary with kind, caring, capable teachers. Suffers from same curriculum problems as all public schools due to state testing focus. Don't hesitate to send your child here.
