Family gatherings at school: fine arts, movie night, back to school picnic
It's such a great time for our kids to show us their school and for us to meet their friends and other parents. It's fun for the kids to show us where they are all day and for us, as parents, to get engaged.
The staff at Yankee Ridge are very welcoming to both new staff and students. Staff work together to help one another out as needed which directly effects (in a positive way) the experiences that students have here at Yankee Ridge on a daily basis.
Our staff is dedicated and works hard
Our instruction staff cares so much for the kids in their charge, and works very hard to impart learning.
Sense of community
I really enjoy the school, and how friendly the staff is towards my child. I am unable to provide everything that I believe she deserves, so for me to see her getting extra help and attention with her studies makes me deeply grateful.
We love the arts program - dance, music, art, drama. We appreciate the PTA's willingness to pay for many field trips so that all students can attend. The library is wonderful. The brain breaks and multiple recesses each day are so good for my kids. And the focus on nutrition has been great.
