I think Yuma is a good school but i believe they have to much homework for the kids. When my kids get home do homework and eat its time for bed. I would feel better if they would split it up into two days one day for english and math and the next for science and history. Or if they would hand out all assighnments on monday and say return them the following monday tha way the kids could do some of it over the weekends. Other than the issue with having to much homework i believe it to be a good school. The teachers their are great and the kids do learn alot.The parents are always welcome to be involved and that to is nice. I wish they would just find an easier way to deal with all the homework, kids need to have time to play and exercise too.
