  • About John Yehall Chin Elementary School

    John Yehall Chin parents love our small, welcoming school and the well-rounded education we provide their students. Being efficient and productive are the two attributes that we treasure the most here. We fully realize and accept without angst the importance of state mandated assessments. We believe in creating a learning environment that fosters caring and innovation so that our students are thirsting to transform our world. Our teachers possess a deep knowledge of their content areas and current research on human development to effectively teach all learners. We believe in using technology, as well as maintaining the all-important human touch, to communicate clearly and frequently with families.

    Monthly programs such as the School Spirit Store, and weekly programs such as the School Pride Tickets, and the Lily Cai Chinese Cultural Dance Program are just some of the unique opportunities that our students and families all love.
