My two boys are loving their first year at Yorkshire Academy. As a former teacher (at a different school) I can really appreciate everything YA provides for students and their families. The teachers and staff are over-the-top fabulous. We truly feel blessed having the opportunity to send our children to YA.
This is our first year at Yorkshire Academy and we are so happy with the staff. They are so accommodating and so welcoming. All the teachers are so friendly. Couldn't ask for a better school for my daughters!
Yorkshire Academy is absolutely the very best that you can provide for your children. I have a son, who has been studying there for the last 2 years(KG and grade1), I could not be more happy. My son absolutely adores his school.
Yorkshire Academy is the best decision my husband and I have ever made! Our oldest child started in Preschool at the age of 3 and has loved every minute of being there! He is always so excited to go to school and has continued to thrive immensely! The teachers and staff are so incredibly supportive and nurturing, and they go over and beyond to accommodate each child's every need. We have been so happy at Yorkshire Academy, we just wish they went through middle school and high school!! :)
I have 3 kids attending YA for the last 7 years. If you want your kids to be well rounded dynamic and engaging young people then you are visiting the right school. I have 3 kids started with MDO. The school focusses on every aspect and need of children based on their age. They have an outstanding curriculum that just not only prepares the kids for future academic challenges, but makes them educated well rounded people. The school has an outstanding art and music department. The PE and health emphasis is a another strength that adds to raising not just book smart kids but growing up to be healthy and smart kids. The afterschool program is a valuable aspect that is constantly updated and well managed program! LOVE THE SCHOOL!!! Submitted by a parent
My daughter has attended Yorkshire since MDO and is now in the 3rd grade. I couldn't imagine how our lives would have been different had we not decided to come to Yorkshire. From day 1, 7 years ago, the faculty knew my name and the name of my child. She gets up everyday, excited to go to school. They have nurtured her and given her a sense of independence that will definitely come in handy as she progresses through the upper grades and beyond Yorkshire. The thought of leaving in 2 1/2 years makes me very sad, but I know that she had the strongest foundation academically that I could have given her and she will be well prepared for the next phase of her schooling. The low student/teacher ratio makes all the difference in the world. If you even have a doubt about where to send your child, just visit Yorkshire. They will make you feel at home instantly and you will not regret leaving your child in their care everyday!
I attended Yorkshire Academy through 5th grade and even in my third year of college, I still love talking about my elementary school days. The nurturing nature of the classrooms, the diverse student population, and the extracurriculars are unmatched. Yorkshire manages to provide challenging academics and to ensure every child cultivates their music, foreign language, computer, p.e. and art skills. When I moved to public school, I missed this combination Yorkshire does so well. If I live in the Houston area when I have children, I will send them to Yorkshire in a heartbeat. I still feel at home when I visit the school and highly recommend Yorkshire Academy. It is a special place.
We have 3 children at Yorkshire Academy, two in 5th and one in 3rd. All 3 started in MDO. The classes are small, academically challenging and foster a nurturing environment. The enrichment classes as well as the afterschool classes have offered our kids the opportunity to express themselves. We have found it to be the perfect balance of academics and enrichment. The teachers are fantastic and Yorkshire has a very involved parent volunteer community. My 5th graders will be moving on to middle school next year and we feel they will be well prepared. My children love going to school every day.
I attended Yorkshire through 5th grade, and it made such an impression that now, as a graduate student, I am compelled to go back and write a review. Sure, other schools are challenging academically, or have interesting extracurriculars, but what sets Yorkshire apart is the ever-present sense of belonging and even family. Coupled with the aforementioned rigor and enrichment, Yorkshire provides a nearly ideal foundation, as well promotes the confidence necessary to build on that foundation. If you're in the market for an elementary school in Houston, Yorkshire is a must-visit.
All three of our children attended Yorkshire through 5th grade. They received an incredible educational foundation. Each has been successful since, with one now in graduate school, another on the Dean's List in college, and the last finishing High School, with several college options. Besides the education they obtained, what impressed me was the school's focus on developing honest, respectful young people - attributes that will help them to have a happy and full life beyond their years at YA.
Yorkshire is a happy place for students, teachers and parents. I have had the privilege of working with the students and teachers at Yorkshire for over 20 years. I have seen many students move on to accomplish great goals in their lives, and I still hear from many of them today. They all tell me how Yorkshire Academy instilled a thirst for knowledge and helped them feel more confident in the classroom. I have had some tell me how Yorkshire helped them to feel good about themselves, and they felt like what they had to say was important. The teachers at Yorkshire are there because they love the students, and it shows!
I moved my daughter to Yorkshire Academy from an Exemplary Spring Branch public school. She is an exceptional student, and is also talented in the performing arts. I felt that her needs would be better met at Yorkshire. While at Yorkshire, she received exceptional teaching in math, language, history and science, and was very prepared for middle school. She also thrived in the performing arts opportunities at Yorkshire Academy, and is now an avid singer and performer. Yorkshire's music program allows a chance for every student to achieve performance opportunities in a loving and successful environment. The owner and principal of Yorkshire are loving, fair, encouraging and the best in the business. There is also a great PVC group for the parents to join. Yorkshire is truly a one-of-a kind school, where kids are treated as family,and encouraged to be the best that they can be.
We moved from a reputable public school district to Yorkshire Academy. The transition was great. The low student to teacher ratio is really important for kids at this age. Each child's gift and talent are well looked into. The director and principal are the most down to earth and nurturing educators that I have ever seen. My kids feel very happy and enthusiastic about school everyday.
This school failed my child through a bad faculty system. One teacher humiliated the child in front of the class for talking softly and was asked to sit down before finishing. The next student was even more soft-spoken but was allowed to finish. My child complained about the uneven treatment, instead of affording an explanation and learning moment about public speaking, the teacher let the situation break-down by mishandling it in a way that does not elevate student confidence. We've moved our child away to a different school and is now in advanced classes for that age level after the new school discovered the child's talents and skills. Yorkshire - "Nurturing and Challenging" Program??? FAIL
The teachers and staff are incredible. They know every child and how to get the best from them all! It's amazing to watch our children's confidence blossom and a thrill to know how much they love to be there. We only wish the school would continue past Grade 5!
My son has been attending Yorkshire Academy for 4 years. I can not say enough good things about this school! The teachers challenge the children academically, and my sons confidence goes from strength to strength. The staff are very caring and supportive, and the parents are also very active in school life. My son is very happy, and always looks forward to going to school, it really is a special place!
My daughters love Yorkshire Academy. They have been attending since MDO and are now in pre-K and 1st grade. YA is a great school if you want your children to be in a nurturing environment and academically challenged. There is so much to do at the school, lots of extra activities, and the teachers and staff are extremely talented and capable and very dedicated to the children My daughters are always happy to go to school, and often do not want to leave. They have a great before and after school program, and the Summer camps are interesting and fun, we always look forward to seeing what is planned for the next year. Exceptional school, teachers and pupils!
Yorkshire Academy is the best private school in Houston for elementary and preschool children. Its mix of smaller class sizes, challenging academics and emphasis on enrichment made it the ideal choice for our two children. We had not planned on keeping our kids in private school through 5th grade, but we did just that and it was the best parental decision we ever made.
Yorkshire Academy has been an incredible experience for all three of my children. Yorkshire is a very positive school where every child is valued. They care so much about your child and their success and create a loving environment to make each child reach their potential. They expose and encourage overall growth and encourage good character. My children will go into the world better people because of the experience at Yorkshire Academy.
My son attended YA for pre-school after relocated from Asia. I can honestly says that the school have done an excellent job. My son got up every morning and beging me to be hurry so that he could go to school. I am very please with the school. The teachers, staffs knows every students by name.There are many things in life that we worrying about but the school, I know my son is in a good hand.
