    My son was diagnosed with high-functioning Autism when he was three. He began attending Yellow Branch in the Special Education Preschool class in March of 2008 and is now continuing for the 2008-09 school year. His teacher and her assistant are some of the most loving patient professional teachers I've worked with - and I taught for 5 years before having children of my own. He was welcomed with open arms and has made significant improvement. We feel blessed that our son has the opportunity to attend preschool in the area and to have professionals who will work with him in such a fantastic way. The staff and the school environment are warm and inviting. Thank you Yellow Branch!

    The 2005-2006 school year was the first year of school for my children. They really enjoyed each aspect of school. Also the reconstruction going on in the school has made a wonderful difference. The new wing gym and soon to be new library and renovated cafeteria and front office will only add to the special effect the school has had on our children. The staff and all the teachers have been very helpful kind and open with our family. We love Yellow Branch Elementary School!
