Open Quote The above information is incorrect. There are only 605 students at YES currently (2/20/20). YES is the most diverse school in the entire York County School Division. The staff and teachers at YES are fully committed to ensuring a quality education for every student. They are a Math, Science, Engineering, Technology Magnet School. They have an excellent MakerSpace, quality resource team, and a solid administration. The PTA has strong involvement at the school and is well supported. Close Quote

Open Quote Kindergarten, First Grade, Second. . . . These kids are young and need a ton of guidance and parents need information. Overload is really ok at this level. But, the information was underwhelming! I found getting basic questions about curriculum and day-by-day plans tough from teachers. It takes 15 minutes per discipline to solidify classroom learning at home without daily information about what was learned (not homework), learning cannot be solidified. On another note, this school is very over-crowded (600). Seaford Elementary is slated to take on some of their extra students in 2018/2019, but it won't be enough. During these years, optimizing the student-to-teacher ratio is of utmost importance. The teachers do not help students who need IEPs. And, I heard countless complaints from parents about their kids who have severe learning disabilities, neuro-impairments or behavioral issues that were without plans. Were told in even the severest of cases, nothing was wrong and they weren't going to do anything. Not Satisfactory! I give it an OK because the office staff is really nice. The teachers do seem to care, but it seems that their hands are a bit tied. The security is something to get used to, but it is generally a good thing because of the world in which we live. The buses were late routinely - and, fights occurred or assaults and students who were victims were sidelined publicly, which made them further vulnerable. One parent showed daily bruisings from a kid in her class. Countless days this had happened. Other parents complained the same student had assaulted their children. Not one formal report by a teacher was made to the office. Obviously, they do not know how to deal with discipline. Finally, I am not sure that this magnet program was as rigorous as I could have hoped for for our kids. Routine extra-curricular opportunities for students were not available for every grade level at every level. Again, for a magnet program, it was surprising. The VP is not a good role model - and, mispronounced basic words like library (Li-bary). Educators should sound educated. In any event, it's a C- school at best. Not the worst, not the best.

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
