Yelm School District Reviews

The Yelm School Distict is a very student oriented run district. They take care of their students and their faculty. This school district from my experience has a very low tolerance for bullying and many of the upper classman exhibit great behavior toward one another. The Yelm School Distict is also extremely FFA orientated and this provides many opportunities for the students who attend at any Yelm School. Being a graduate student from the Yelm School District, and attending many of the schools I can garuntee they are one of the more involved districts in their community. Overall, the Yelm District provides an important part of the Yelm community and continues to be a motivating factor toward higher education.

The academics provided for advanced placement and honors are good; however, if assistance is needed for this level of education, resources are slim and some of the teachers are not willing to stay after hours. Coaches for wrestling and football are outstanding and encourage academic achievement, as well as college preparation. Educational Assistants are often given too much power and authority and tend to be unchecked bullies.
The teachers at the high school are really nice but the students are not, it does not feel like a community. There are a decent amount of classes but I would like to see more such as psychology and I would like there to be a grade 12 English class instead of mythology and science fiction (1 semester each) or AP. There is no regular year long class for seniors and I think that should change. I also think they need to enforce the dress code better, there are half naked girls walking around and that is not a proper learning environment.
