    "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!"

    "Yick Wo is a wonderful school!! It's our neighborhood school and was fortunate to be ale to attend. I tell everyone that it may be small but it has such a tight community of parents that are so involved that it makes it such a wonderful school. I read a comment that said that the principle is not experienced. I beg to differ. She has yet to display anything that is less than satisfactory. She goes way beyond of what I would expect. With her and the staff, they are great to the kids. The kids have fun and have fun learning and that because of the staff."

    "Yick Wo is simply a wonderful school. The principal is truly your "pal" .. you might remember that from spelling class when you were a child. Stephanie Young does an amazing job managing the school especially with tightened budgets and the parent organization is run by surfer dude Chris who is tremendous. Both are energetic, engaged and lead with their hearts and minds. Our daughter finished kindergarten last year with Mr Steve, THE BEST TEACHER any parent can hope for. The school did not "close" as described in prior review, the school moved for a year to a temporary location a couple blocks away while the campus is being refurbished. We feel blessed to be at Yick Wo and lucky to have gotten in."

    "Yick Wo has lost its special feeling over the past two years. The new Principal is not experienced and it shows. The school is closing next year for at least one year and maybe more years and parents have not received any details on how this will affect their children. It still has several excellent teachers and overall is a good school. There is still less than one hour a week for PE but Coach Robinson is great with the kids."

    "Yick Wo gives public schools a great name! It is a small neighborhood school with a wonderfully diverse student population. The principal is enthusiastic and responsive; the teachers are excellent and foster a love of learning; there are many very involved parents who raise funds for programs like SF Opera partnership, SF Ballet partnership, art classes, Playworks, PE and more. The only thing differentiating it from a private school is the facility which is about to be greatly improved. I know parents with children in SF private schools who wish they had the community feel and programming of Yick Wo."
