This is a wonderful school. The staff truly cares. Safety is important to them and the children are kept safe by practicing drills of all kinds.

YES has provided a wonderful experience for my son and our family! He has had a fantastic K and 1st grade teacher and I have heard nothing but wonderful things about the 2nd grade team as well. The principal and the YES staff are very welcoming and handle any problems quickly. The PTA is great and holds many great activities through out the year.

Yorktown Elementary School has been a great place for 2 of my children. The teachers are dedicated and work hard to make every child feel included and successful. There has been a lot of changes in administration over the past 5 years - I would prefer more stability! YES has a diverse student population including the addition of many military families recently. Overall, I think YES is a wonderful school that has its eye on the prize - happy, healthy, successful children! The PTA is very active and inclusive. Parent volunteers make YES an even better place.

I am so impressed with Y.E.S! My son has made so many leaps and bounds with Mrs. Stuhl and Ms. Terry as his teachers! I wish he could have them every year! The schools speech program is amazing! I honestly couldn't have asked for a better preschool program!

Y.E.S is a good school. Fairly diverse. Ms. Nicholson (2nd Grade) is simply the best. Very caring. Ms. Concannon and Ms. Siefriet (K) are also a good team. I am going to miss Y.E.S.!

Yorktown Elementary is a great school with caring and dedicated staff. My third child is currently attending and I wouldn't ever consider changing schools.

I am the parent of 2 students at YES. this school should be given 5 stars from every parent! The principles/asst. principle are the BEST! The special ed department is wonderful! All the staff are there for you and your child's needs. Safety is taken very seriously also at YES. We are a military family and my kids have been to 3 different schools in 3 different states; this school takes the cake, by-far!

I think the staff at Yorktown Elementary are very dedicated to student success and foster a great environment in which students can and will learn. The scores by our students are increasing every year! The staff also works very hard to provide fun and enriching after school activities for the students like Chess club, OOTM, Newspaper Club, Horticulture Club, Step Teams, Astronomy Club, and many others. I am very happy to part of such a hard working and energetic staff! Go Explorers!

I am currently a teacher at Yorktown Elementary and I could not be more pleased with this environment. I have taught in an inner-city school and it was so refreshing to join such a hard-working staff that truly cares about the students, parents, and other staff members. I am also a parent and, though we are not zoned for Yorktown Elementary, I plan to bring both of my children to this school because I strongly believe that this a a phenomenal environment to help children blossom. Also, the administrators at YES are the best and really support the staff!

Yorktown has been through a lot in a short time. There have been many staff changes in the past few years, but for various reasons: retirement, military moves, and personal reasons. It is unfair to 'punish' a school based on teachers who leave for any of those reasons. The true test of a staff is the continued improvement of its students and you will see that in the scores of yes. Yorktown Elementary has recently gained new leadership and I feel that with that change we have seen a rise in parental involvement, community support, and stability. I feel very strongly that this is a great school!

At the begining of the school year, my daughter had a lot of difficulty with math. and I can't complain about the teachers help. They demostrated the profesionalism and dedication for the children. One on one help was received and my daughter's success is remarkable. Thanks Yorktown Elementary Staff, keep up with the good work. C. de Jesus

No parental involvement. You can not get an appointment with the principal direct because she will send you repeatedly to her assistant principal. Teachers seem overworked and stressed. Do not attend go to this school if you can help it.

Recently moved to va. Chose yorktown elementary because it was the closest school to my in-laws with a gifted-extend program. I did not expect the program to be like fort knox to get into. The nicest people were mrs. Haywood and mrs. Best. Facilites are clean. Playground nice. Teachers are fair.

My daughter has entered kindergarten and has problems with most of the information being taught. Her teacher and the class aid has gone out of their way to help her and I get on the right track. One on one instruction when needed, notes home for extra help with a subject, and overall caring for how my daughter succeeds. I am happy to have her in this school because if she had been in a different one, I do not know if she would have been helped to understand the subjects. Thank you Yorktown Elementary! I have two more children to go.

My daughter is in 3rd grade now and is having trouble in math. Her math teacher Mr. Phillipoom actually called me at home and said he would tutor her after school. I hadn't experienced that kind of commitment with the Newpoert News school she went to. I am so glad we moved to this district.
