    My school is Yorkwood elementary and my child is in Pre-K. I find his teacher to be excellent engaging and he loves school. My child has some special needs and the IEP Coordinator has done a superb job in putting in place the proper things to help my child in school. The parent participation seems lax but so far I am very pleased with the school and my son loves it.

    This was my daughters last year at Yorkwood and I was very pleased with school! She looked forward to coming to school each day. Her 5 th grade teacher was great! Her academic school improved and she was challenged to work to the best of her ability. She also involved in activities that she loved. Being a morning announcer and a dancer was something she really looked forward to all the time! She talk about what she was doing in class and how she learned something new on class and I was thrilled about her excitement for learning! I really hate to see her move on but I believe she is well equipped thanks to her experience at Yorkwood!!

    I agree the principal lacks leadership skills. Maybe if they had a new Administration team Yorkwood s would teacher s morale would be better. Yorkwood pride please.
