Yellow Medicine East provides a pretty average experience. The class pride is very low while the majority of athletics have been poor in recent years. There are a few over-achieving teachers who lift up the others' average.

My experience was good. It is great that they offer college courses in high school. I got to complete college credit while still in high school.
Yellow Medicine East High School has great teachers that truly care about their students and their success.
