Yorkdale Elementary School Reviews
My children will not be attending Yorkdale Elementary School next school semester. It hurts that I had to make this harsh decision as I am aware that the district and school will be losing money when I pull my children from this school. I just looked at its rating; not what I expected at all. Honestly I thought I'd see a 1 instead of 2. I pray for Yorkdale's studants that will be returning. I pray that they will receive top-flight education, in hopes to stop the dropout rate in Los Angeles and California as a whole.
