The teachers at YSGA actually care if you understand things or not. If you don’t understand something, they are not just going to leave you there. They take the time to go over the information several times until you get it. I love this about my YSGA teachers.

All students K-8 are expected to wear the YSGA uniform at all times and to dress and groom themselves in such a way as to reflect neatness, cleanliness, and safety. YSGA scholars should dress appropriately as not to disrupt or interfere with the educational program or the orderly operation of the school. The CEO or Director of Discipline shall determine whether any particular use of the school uniform violates school uniform policy.

Each class will have a scheduled P.E. class at least two days a week; students are permitted to dress down on that assigned day. A gym t-shirt is available for purchase to be worn on the designated gym days. Clothing worn should be appropriate and comfortable in order for the student to participate in P.E. class and activities.

  • dresses, skirts or skorts
  • shorts
  • shirts that expose the mid-section; half-shirts
