    "My overall experience at Yoakum High School could not get any better as it has been. Yoakum High school has a wide selection of curricular activities and clubs to take part in. The schools rules and standards allow education to be a top priority at this school. My best experiences attending Yoakum High School would be the education I have received and taking part in organizations that have allowed me to become the person I am today. I had an equal opportunity as the rest of the students attending the school to get the highest grades possible. The NHS, PALS,and FFA organizations have impacted and changed my life for the better and interest to furthering my career in education to then have a professional occupation. If I could choose this school again , I would do it all over again."

    "Almost every teacher at Yoakum High School is dedicated to teaching every student to their full potential. They are all very high quality teachers, that put their own techniques and teaching skills down every day of the school year that allows students like me to be engaged in all subjects. The grading criteria is the same throughout the entire school, and it stands strong so that all students have a fair opportunity to get the highest grades and expand there knowledge and education. Teachers at Yoakum High school teach both as a class , and also a teacher student one-on-one basis that allows every student to get the help they need to be successful in all courses."

    "I wouldn't choose to go to Yoakum High School again because my experience to start out with was definitely below average. I am a great student and excel in my studies, but the curriculum based courses are definitely sub pat at best. I feel like I could have definitely been more challenged throughout my high school career at a different school. The students here are definitely not something I want to relive, but the teachers are okay. I just feel like I could have learned more if I would have went somewhere else to get my high school education. It's not the worst school ever, but it's no where near the best. There aren't many activities for non athletic people to be involved in. Plus, if you are athletic there is so much favoritism amongst the coaches that if your not high class then you don't get to play. I would have been better off at a different school, but I am glad that I am at the top ten percent of my class so I got into Texas A&M University and will be able to get way away from here."

    "Some teachers go above and beyond, but the ones that do are the ones that are most likely to leave or be fired in the next couple of years. Some ofthe teachers know exactly what they are talking about and are good at what they do; however, some of them are still learning. It's hard to learn from teachers whom are still learning themselves. Granted I have had a lot of good teachers. The ones that I liked the most all left throughout my high school career, and one was not even allowed to be rehired when he should have been because he was actually a good teacher and made the students work. The students didn't like that so they took it out on him and he lost his job for it. Some of the teachers teach the equivalent to a college professor which is a wonderful start for students planning on furthering their education such as myself. I think in reality that the students in my high school make the teachers look bad, because of how outrageous they can be. Yoakum has some really good teachers, but the students are very immature. I liked most of my teachers and I wouldn't trade them, well except one because I didn't learn anything in his classroom, but that's different. The point is that I'm not one to judge, but the teachers at YHS are okay. The staff in general is okay. It's just kind of mediocre."

    "This school is okay but it's not the greatest. They put more focus on athletics than academics. As a result our UIL teams are lacking in membership and performance. This also affects the students in terms of discipline. Students on the varsity sports teams get a sort of pass if they get in trouble so that they can still play."
