YIS is a wonderful community because of its extensive parental support and the volunteer contributions of people like you! PTSA meets once a month to update parents on what’s going on in the school, that includes an update from our Head of School and student council representatives. The meeting is normally followed or preceded by a fun activity. In the past, these have included guest speakers, workshops, arts and crafts sessions, and outings. Everyone is welcome including your toddlers!

Meeting agendas, minutes, financial statements and the PTSA constitution are available through the PTSA section of the Parent Portal.

Would you like to join the PTSA team? Contact us! We are looking forward to getting to know you!
