ABOUT OUR SCHOOL
Yelm Prairie Elementary, a design-winning school, opened its doors in September 1984 to approximately 450 students in Kindergarten through sixth grade. Since that time, we have seen our grade configuration change from K-6 to K-5, K-4, then to Preschool-4, and now a Preschool - 5th grade. Our student population as of October 2019 was 428 students.
We have 18 regular education classrooms for our K-5th grade students. In addition, we have special subject teachers in Reading, Math, Special Education, Music, Band, Art, P.E., and Media/Library.
In 2005, we opened a Yelm Community Schools developmental preschool and in 2017 the Functional Learning Center began serving students at our site.
