I went to Yucca Loma Kindergarden through 4th grade and REMEMBER alllllll from here! It's one of the best schools I've ever attended and made me wiser than I thought as these years are the most essential in learning. Thank you to all who had impacted me at this school as I remember EVERY SINGLE one of my teachers and the assignments. We even donated our goldfish to the school pond!! The community garden had started when I attended this school! AMAZING!!! So thank you to all who impacted my life here in Apple Valley!
