I think JYMS is a great school. Every thing is great there. The principal is great the staff are nice, the teachers are fantastic, and I could go on forever but the main thing I am saying is if you ever get a chance to send your child there, you really should. You won't regret it :)

i love(d) john yeates. Unfortunately, I had to move to Charlotte,North Carolina. We have fun, the teachers are ok, the food isn't all of that but its ok. I made a lot of friends and quick. My favorite teacher was Ms. Bougouneau.
