After lengthy discussions at our Guiding Coalition, Collaborative Learning Team sessions, and School Advisory Council meetings and collecting feedback and input from all YMS staff and some community members, we have produced a draft for final consideration of what will become our school’s new vision and mission statements. Now we are seeking any final feedback through Sunday, June 9th, before posting the following statements as official as we charter the course into the future for YMS students, staff, families, and community members. As a guide, the vision must be a statement of what we want to become and the mission reflects what we pledge to do routinely to achieve our vision. Please feel free to provide any feedback to the following by emailing Mr. David Krakoff at

Yearling Middle School will prepare ALL students for success in college, career, and life.

Yearling Middle School will support ALL students’ academic and social emotional growth through student-centered, standards-aligned instruction, authentic and collaborative learning, differentiated instruction, and positive, supportive relationships.
