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.
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.
