Yale Senior High School Reviews

At Yale, the students have lots of school spirit. Another positive is their athletics with such sports as soccer, basketball and volleyball. The teachers are engaged in helping the students with extra work, or homework after school if it is needed. Another positive to this school would have to be their level of safety is very good. They make sure that all students are safe at all times, along with making them feel comfortable in their work place. Something that they can improve on, would have to be teaching the students about getting ready for University and College. All in all, Yale is a great school to go to and I would recommend to many people to check this school out if possible.

The teachers at Yale are absolutely fantastic. They genuinely care about their students and the quality of education. There are very limited AP classes, which really hinders a lot of students, and there isn't much of an emphasis on the arts than there is on sports, which is a bit frustrating. The student population is pretty good, but there are a few bad seeds. The office staff is absolutely phenomenal, and the new principal and vice principal are doing a pretty good job so far.
Overall, I have had a good experience with Yale High School, but there has been issues within administration. They are pressuring teachers to conform to the same plan, and it is making the classrooms feel like prison. It is making the teachers miserable and it is very noticeable to us students.
