    The teachers and administrators are accessible and great to talk to. They put forth their best effort in all areas to do a great job with the children. If there is a challenge it is easy to speak with someone who really cares and work through a problem

    My daughter just started at this school this year for 8th grade and I believe this is the best school ever for her. Teachers are awesome

    The quality of teachers and overall academic program is good. Some differences exist in quality and levels of commitment between teachers as in all schools. There is a healthy mix of 'old school' and newer generation instructors. The recent Federal mandates have had a positive effect on its curriculum. Budgetary restrictions have had a severe adverse impact on extracurricular activities. A problem that exisits is that of inequality in terms or student representation. Because only approximately 1/4 of students in grades 7 & 8 come from the adjoining Laurel Springs elementary school they are under-represented on student councils. Because of their majority standing Stratford natives control most student activities. Furthermore their history in Yellin puts them in closer contact with the teachers and administration thus putting LS students at a potential or real disadvantage dispite their generally higher levels of preparedness and achievement. In these areas ther remains room for improvement.

    I'm actually a student at Yellin. I will mostly be talking about seventh and eighth grade. Yellin in my opinion is not the best choice for your child. First of all the budget money is not at the best level and affects the quality of our learning. The sports are pretty bad. We have cheerleading girls and boys basketball and softball. That is it. Considering the fact that we do not have a seperate junior high students do not get half of the effect. Seventh and Eighth graders do not have music. There are very few clubs. Art is excellent all thanks to our teacher. The Parents are involed quite a bit. There is PTO which is Parent Teacher Organization. We do have National Junior Honor Society. It is a organization where you are recognized for your academics. Although you can have that around the nation. Yellin is okay.
