High School Student
I enjoy music because it provides me with continuous opportunities to improve as a performer in the numerous public performances we have here.
Elementary School Student
I liked our trip to KidZania because I met students of different ages there, not just students from my grade.
Middle School Student
I would want to trade places with my English teacher, Mrs. Edwards. I love writing, reading, and especially words. I would love to help others expand their vocabulary, too.
High School Student
I love math because there is only one right answer, and I love music because there are no right answers.
YIS has changed somewhat since my time here, but the essence remains unchanged - especially the close community.
Some children only have one unforgettable teacher in their life, our children have countless.
