    "Yick Wo is really a wonderful school but the 4th and 5th grade classes have 32 or so students and the teachers are struggling to deal with the range of student needs. The school has a lot of great extra curriculars -- visual art, poetry (AMAZING new teacher), PE, Opera, playworks, chess, newspaper club (The New Yick Times :)but it needs to keep its priorities straight or I fear the school's academics will go down. The early grades are pretty wonderful with a lot of veteran teachers and team teachers who pour resources on their relatively small classes. The school needs to support the upper grades with an aid so that the kids are ready for middle school."

    "Yick Wo is a gem among SF public schools. It's small size is an asset. It has only 2 classes per grade in the lower levels, and because of it's small size, everyone knows everyone. All the teachers, coaches, and principal know my kids. I was first impressed with the school when I went for a tour: kids were actively engaged in learning math, science, music, and opera but weren't having to sit at their desks all day. Kids and teachers were so engaged in what they were doing that no one noticed our group observing them. Student-created art lines the hallways and is impressive. This is a late start school (9:30), and there is no before school option on campus. It's also very neighborhood-centric. There are limited-none extra-curricular options compared to other SF public schools. It partners with SF Opera, SF Ballet, and has a resident poet for half the year."

    "Yick Wo is a secret gem. The school is very small and its size creates a real sense of community. Everyone involved with the school, teachers, parents, administrative staff and students come to know each other well and to look out for one another. There is a strong emphasis on mentoring younger kids by the older kids through reading programs, math and a Peace Keeper program where the older children learn to mediate disputes between their younger peers. The warm, supportive environment encourages kids to develop their interests in multiple directions and the strong parent involvement and PTO bring opportunities into the school that other elementary schools lack. All classes take frequent field trips around the city and the bay area. Some of the special programs the children enjoy are: Opera with the SF Opera, Dance with SF Ballet, a Poetry program, an Orff music teacher, a Choral music teacher, Playworks (a program teaching organized play, co-operation and teamwork), PE, Art, Chess Club taught by a Grand Master from the Mechanic's Institute and this year they will have a Newspaper Club. The teachers are wonderful. The Principle is exceptional. I wish it extended through high school!"
