My son attended YMS for 6-8th grades. He had a wonderful experience. The teachers truly care about the students at YMS.
We have been very disappointed in this school. They do not care about your child's education, they only care about their numbers. Half the time, the only sections they cover in a textbook are those items that are on the CRCT. My child was a straight A student before coming to Youth Middle. Now, she's bringing home B's and C's.
