  • I would not recommend this school to anyone. Lots of bulling, harassment, and gossip. The teacher supported this behaviour in children, and the principal did not take control of the situation. This school is also weak academically. The math program (advanced?) for 7th grade was barely halfway completed. The teacher did not want and was not able to answer my child's questions concerning the contents of the subjects she taugnt.

  • YLS is a terrific school. Don't let the grading system used by LocalSchoolDirectory.com fool you. My son is now in HS (2nd year) and maintains a 4.55 GPA with honors in math, science, english and history. My daughter is in advanced math at YLS now and I expect the same result. They both loved the sport programs as well. The workload is fair and the teachers are fully accessable. It has been the best investment - the dividens are still paying off and my children are well educated, confident, caring and happy.

  • This is the best elementary school in Yuma, hands down. My son attended this school and he loved it. As a parent I was impressed by the teachers and staff. Out of curiosity I had him take part of the AIMs math test when he completed 8th grade and found he was easily passing. Their algebra teacher is awesome!
