    My daughter loves this school my three neices and nephew also adore this school and as a parent I am grateful and thankful for this school. I appreciate that YPSA has and is instilling in my daughter valuable life skills great academic studies field trips a wonderful open door policy between parents and all staff on campus. My daughter is learning so much about her Hmong heritage and is very proud of who she is and her Hmong culture. YPSA offers so much more than just the basics YPSA provides arts martial arts dance music and computers. YPSA also is a family and truly practice the saying '' it takes a whole community to educate one child. ''

    I took a tour of this school and was thoroughly impressed by it. Students were well-behaved and engaged teachers seemed enthusiastic the principal was committed and caring as well as focused on what is best for the kids and the overall environment gave the impression of an extremely well-run school. Each class we entered was engaged in active learning. They appear to put children's needs first with a focus on serving under-served populations. They are a new school but seem to have a strong vision of what they expect to accomplish as an educational institution.

    I cannot say enough great things about this school. Although it is rather new and still undergoing its shape the teachers at this school make it an amazing experience for the students. They go over and beyond the call of duty. This is a great school for students as it builds character and offers hands on experiences (an excellent tool for ELL).
