    YSMS is awesome to the fullest and is one of the best things in my life. I learn a lot and have a blast at the same time. In my opinion YSMS is the best middle school in the world.

    My son is learning disabled and I must say that YSMS has taken care of his needs to the fullest. They are understanding and willing to help my son succeed to his fullest potential. I as a parent appreciate the care this school provides for my son. Thank you YSMS for all your help.
