Y.E.S. is a very good primary school. The principal is involved, fun and dynamic; the teaching staff is communicative, responsive and generally nurturing, with a good balance of education and fun. Almost all of the staff I've had the opportunity to deal with are great. I took away one star because I find one particular main office staffer condescending and at times downright unfriendly to both parents and students alike and unfortunately it's hard to get around having interactions with her, given her position on the "front lines" of the school. Other than that, however, Y.E.S. is great and I'm happy to send my 2 children here.
Yahara elementary has just been the best for my 2 children. Get staff and support! Couldn't ask for any better!
Yahara Elementary teachers, Principal Roy Bernards and staff are wonderful, very caring and understanding. The PTA works hard to have fundraisers for the school. Thanks
it is in the neighborhood. walking distance from home All parents and teachers work very well together. :-)
The teachers are great. The administration cares and is supportive. It has great students that are kind, caring, fun and motivated to learn to become great people!!
The entire Yahara staff, from the principal to the custodians, all work so very hard to provide the best elementary school experience for each and every student. They are progressive and cutting-edge in their methods, open-minded in their processes, highly responsive in problem solving and complete thier jobs with a wonderfully positive attitude.
Yahara is a family-centered school, where families have lots of opportunities to be involved in their children's education. There is a real sense of community there and the kid's take ownership in their school, allowing them to feel safe, happy, positive and excited to learn.
Because I've had 4 daughters attend this school and they all loved it!
I love Yahara Elementary School because it is a fun environment. It has a great principal, great teachers, helpful working support staff, and wonderful kids. And of course, the parents are cool too.
The principal, Roy Bernards, rocks. He knows everyones first and last names, and does his best to meet the needs of all the students and parents.
Yahara has caring atmosphere where kids enjoy learning. My son loves going to school every day!
It's a great school that has great teachers and a wonderful principal. My kids have never said 'I don't want to go to school today', I think that says it all right there.
I have had 3 children attend this school over the last 19 years. The latest principal is by far the best yet! Majority of teachers are great too, very in tune and personable. One of the secretarys in the office is not very pleasant but she gets the job done.
We have a great group of parents involved in the PTA and volunteering to bring great programs and fundraisers to our school! We had the Pro Kids Show to YES last month. We have raised enough money to buy a few new playground pieces. what a great community!
I have 3 children who have all attended Yahara Elementary. All of the teachers are wonderful! My kids loved their teachers and the teachers are so friendly and on top of everything. I would get calls if homework was not in or if there were any concerns. This school in my book is one of the best anywhere.
We have really enjoyed having our kids at YES. The only major part of the educational process that seems to be missing is a Gifted/Talented program. The principal, support staff and teaching staff is excellent.
Rating 5* This is an outstanding school to enroll your child(ren). The staff is top notch and the school ranks very well in state testing year after year. One of our children has some special needs. Both the school and the district have done an outstanding job in providing the needed tools and personal to help make it the best education experience possible. I highly recommend the school, as do many other parents! If you are moving to the area - I suggest you check it out for yourself. Thank you.
