My daughter and step-daughter both attended Yahara. Both of the girls started there after the school year began which can be a very difficult transition for kids. The staff and students at Yahara made both of them feel so at home and welcome. I always felt very welcomed anytime I went to the school and the staff knew who we were- not just another face. My son currently in Kindergarten at Community Elementary and I am so looking forward to next year when he goes to Yahara for 1st Grade. I noticed that one parent expressed concern about the long bus ride... I would much rather have my son be on the bus longer and feel a true sense of community and belonging when he gets to school, then have a 10 minute trip and be lost in the crowd.

Yahara is a quality small (120 student) elementry school. The ability to have a choice in Edgerton was important to us. We live in town and chose to send our child to Yahara rather than the elementry school in town with nearly 700 students at the time. The multi-age classes are an assest to learning and to socal developent of the children. The teachers have a chance to really get to know the students (and parents) and their individual needs. Teachers know the students in not only their classes but the entire school -- it really is a family.

Yahara is a wonderful school, anyone who has not spent anytime out there and goes by only hear say, has no idea what they are missing, come and spend a day with us and see for yourself. We have wonderful teachers/staff and our parent involovement is unbelievable! We are a close family at Yahara and welcome anyone who would like to come and see what we are all about. I have 3 children at Yahara and could not be happier with the education they are receiving.

I have no doubt that the teachers/staff are great but from what I hear and what I agree with is how upsetting it is that the very few children that have to attend Yahara spend an hour each way on the bus to go to a school that is far from their hometown.Those chosen for this school are farther away from residents close to it that don't have to go there. I disagree with students having to be part of a split grade class for the sake of keeping the school open for a measly 60 or so students It also seems ridiculous to have students attend this school for grades 1-5 only. Why have them go to K with a bunch of students, take them away from their associations, and then reunite them again later? I also pay taxes to Edgerton school district, same as those going to that school.

When I moved to my home years ago I was not at all concerned about what school district we lived in (my baby was only 10 months old.) Fast forward 10 years, my first child attended 6 years at Yahara and my second child is in her 3rd year at Yahara. We are so thankful to be part of Yahara Community School. The teachers and staff are outstanding. Just last night an open house event was held. Students, parents, grandparents, even students that are now in middle and high school stopped by. It is awesome to see such community support. I think all area schools provide a great education but what I love most about Yahara (and sets them apart from other schools) is that all children are embraced with love and are really encouraged to be their best, always helping to discover each students own best.

I have been a Yahara parent for 6 yrs. I have had had two children complete their time at Yahara and one chid still there. Yahara is a wonderful school. It is very family orientated. The teching staff goes above and beyond to make all the children feel special. It is a small country school that produces a strong belief in all the student to believe in their self and be the best in all they do. Many students have developed good work/study habits and respect for self and others due to the fact that they attended Yahara. Yeah for Yahara a home away from home filled with love and respect. Proud parent of Yahara

My son went to Yahara. I absolutely loved his teachers. They all worked so hard with my son. They are very committed to helping children in whatever they need help with. My child was an especially difficult child, but they did not give up on him. They also did not just label him and file him away as unteachable. They kept trying and kept encouraging him and me. The support system they offer is fantastic.
