Welcome to Yelm Community Schools!
Yelm schools and the community at large have a long and strong tradition of caring about their youth. This is reflected by the tremendous community support we get from our business sector and in the partnerships we have developed with local service organizations and, more importantly, with parents.
I experienced this support firsthand as a young person growing up in Yelm and benefited greatly from the commitment by staff and community to put the best interest of students at heart. It is this type of tradition that not only makes Yelm a special place to live, but also provides a solid foundation for academic excellence.
Our staff is dedicated to providing the best education possible for all of our students in a safe and caring environment. They take great pride in their own performance, defining quality education as a top priority. We as a staff know it takes more than just books to develop a culture of academic excellence and invite you to join our team so that together we may prepare our students for their future.
