    Extracurriculars: We Have almost every club you want or need and if you want a club it isn't that hard for you or a teacher to make it. The school offers a lot and isn't shown to be as great as it should be. Many people hear rumors that aren't true and that beings down Yuma highs Credibility due to false accusations.

    Overall Experience: Not All parents are as involved with the schools as they need to be. If a child's parent isn't involved he child is more likely to loose rack of there grade and eventually fail the class. Children need a Spark of motivation althat can sometimes be given by the parents push for better grades.

    Teachers: Teachers are always motivated and ready for there next lesson. They always make sure that there students are paying attention and are not distracting other students from having the chance to learn the material they need to graduate. Even when a students grade slips any teacher is more then happy to dtay after school with that child to help make sure he/she learns the material that they nees to learn.
