The only good thing about this school is that it is within walking distance. My son was bullied and they minimized the situation.

The teachers don't trust the kids!! It bothers me because I am a honest hard working student!! -.- smh... THe prinipal rmemebers EVERYONE'S name!! I love that. Sadly he's leaving. I am unsure about our new pricipal. She has made no effort as Vice Principal to learn anything about the student. Our old pricipal (this happened one time) would see you walking down the hall and ask you about choir or band. He was even wondering if I had recieved a solo. He made a true effort. He will be missed. When I leave GYS I don't think I will miss it. I hate wwwaaayyyy too many of my teachers even though I have excelled greatly since elementary school.
This school offer every thing a kid needs and some! My kids even like to go to school.
I adore this school. I hope school will stay on top of all of the great things it is doing Just from the look you could tell omg i love this school. I hope every parent will see that all children will get a good education.
this school is pretty great but there is too much drama happening and im not into drama. other than tht the teachers are great
It is now a distinguished school and every time I visit I am greeted with enthusiasm.
Great School! Grace Yokley just received another CA Distinguished School Award 2003 & 2009!!
I've had two children attend this school and a third one soon. The teachers are engaged and challenge the students. I'm very happy w/ the education my children are receiving.
I really like this school both of my children have gone there. I believe the teachers do their best to teach the children and guide them into the right choices of education.
I was speaking with a friend of mine whose child goes to Whittier school district middle school. and they have a really neat program called teleparent...where you receive a phone call from the class he is missing assignments in showed up unprepared for class was disruptive/disrespectful..etc..keeps you informed on a daily basis..I think this is awesome..no offense but the agenda program just does not work..ive been dealing with the agenda for 5 or 6 years now and it just doesnt work for student or parent maybe for teachers...I think its something grace yokley should seriously look into...and parents can give their cel phone to prevent messages from being 'accidentally' erased...
As a parent of a child who attends this school I have been involved in my child's academic education since he started school when he was four. He loves this school. I think he is enjoying his 7th grade year better than he did his 6th grade. It was a hard transition for him to go from one teacher to 7. He is doing a lot better this year and I am impressed by his grades and his willingness to participate in his classes. This year he tried out for the flag football team and made it. He is doing an awesome job this year.
As a teacher at Grace Yokley I can assure you that it is an outstanding school. We do our best to challenge every student enrolled. We also deal with discipline and create a positive learning environment.
It seems that the teachers are always absent and my kids always have subs. There isn't much teacher/parent contact and progress reports are always late getting out.
they dont have a lot of academic requirements that students have to meet...
I attend Grace Yokley Middle School and i believe it is a very good school. The teachers are so wonderful! You learn a lot from them! The activites sports teams and Drill teams are very good too! I believe it is one of the best schools around!
the teachers are great and the learning is good.
Unfortunately this school does not offer magnet program or recognizes gifted children. This is a big down fall for me in particular. They do have a great bible club. I think they should have more extracurricular activities.
I am a student i think this school is doing it best they can. the teachers are great what more do they need.
Grace Yoakley is an okay school but it has some down falls. There is not enough adult supervision in the school. Daily I see bad moral behavior that should be stopped. Also the teachers favor the smarter students and there should be a gate program. The teachers are challenging. They have good food. From A Student
The school does not seem to understand the high academic child. Thee is no avid or gate program
