Yuma High School is a good school to attend. The teachers are respectful to the students. They are good at helping the students learn and exceed in there classes. A few things I would change in the school is the learning system because it lacks learning information, they should help us about adulting like, taxes, work experience, how to save money and how the real world be like. I would change the food products and make it healthier for students because what they use now it makes students stomachs hurt badly that they wouldn't not want to eat at school and makes them hungry throughout the school day. The school should have more clubs, school activities and more events because they hardly do them.

I've been a student at Yuma High School for all four years of my high school career. I think the history aspect of it is so intriguing, and there's no other high school like it in the Yuma area. The school is such a tourist attraction, and holds a lot of memories for so many people. Yuma High School offers many opportunities for its students like dual credit, ap courses, extracurricular activities, clubs, and job opportunities. I am currently involved in the YHS Band, ap courses, and am a current employ as well. The overall atmosphere is very friendly, and everyone here is willing to help you succeed.
I just started at Yuma High School as a senior and actually just moved to Arizona this year from kind of far away, so my experience might not be totally accurate. So far, it seems like a standard high school. Yuma High does have limited class options, although I'm not sure about the class options available in the Yuma Union High School District. It's pretty easy to graduate from and all the teachers really try to do their best to have every student to graduate. Overall, I have had a positive experience at Yuma High.
