P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School Reviews

126 reviews

I was in Kindergarten when I started at PK Yonge, and as an elementary schooler, and even as a middle schooler, there where no particularly major flaws until I started high school classes, but in high school, PK Yonge has left me wishing there was more. More attention to the students, more care for their wishes, more particular about the teachers they hired. My first high school class was in 8th grade when I took algebra 1 honors, during that year I had over five different math teachers, 3 of which weren't even math teachers, and my mathematics education hasn't improved much since then. But I must stress, many of the teachers care deeply for their students, its the higher ups that seem to only care about the reputation of the school, not the happiness of the students enrolled.

PK Yonge was the only school I ever attended. I have been here from kindergarten to 12th grade. I never received preschool education. But PK provided me not only adequate education, they provided me a family and an environment to thrive. This school gives all students the opportunity to be well rounded. For example, I participate in three sports but I also am in the art program and am the president of a few clubs. Overall my experience has been unforgettable. The few things that I’d like to change are the curriculum in elementary where they mix grades together. Such as students in 4th and 5th grade are out together in a class and learn the same material. This causes potential problems because the 4th graders learn the same material the coming year. I also would like to change the cafeteria food to a more healthier and fresher option. The food is heavily refrigerated and not as healthy as other meal options.
P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School is an overall good school. For PK to be a K-12 school I would say that it is a safe school to be at. Our school is pretty small, it produces a family environment. As for sports Basketball is great, Soccer is great, Baseball is great, Volleyball is great, and swimming and diving is great. As for the other sports we may need some help. The learning is advanced, plenty of classes to choose from to jump-start your future here at PK. There are also plenty of clubs to choose from too, and I forgot to mention that our school is very diverse.
