In 2015-16 Yelm High School enrollment will push toward 1,200 students in grades 10-12. We are proud of our beautiful campus and facilities. For the upcoming year, YHS will increase the number of students in our Advanced Placement courses with the addition of AP European History and AP Environmental Science. Our Career and Technical Education program is one of the largest in Washington and boasts many of the state’s finest co-curricular programs. Also new in 2015-16, we have expanded capacity in our performing arts programs (music and theater) to complement our outstanding arts offerings. Yelm High School offers many outstanding courses in English/Language Arts, the sciences, math and fitness. The Tornados are a proud member of the 4A Narrows League for athletics. Our community has graciously supported our strong facilities. 2015-16 will be our 9th year in the main building, and our technology systems are high quality. Last year our wireless network was completely upgraded, and our students will benefit this year with access to more than 600 Chromebook computers. That is one device for every 2 students. We have outstanding students, teachers, staff and families which allows us to confidently say we are building the world's greatest high school every day.
