It is the mission of YPA to educate all students to the highest levels of academic achievement, where they are continuously challenged to think, perform, and grow into lifelong learners.
We consistently revisit the mission in all our practices and evaluate progress toward mission accomplishment through multiple measures including student performance and growth, teacher performance, administrator performance, and school performance.
YPA will act as a catalyst for educational change by preparing all students to become lifelong learners and responsible citizens ready to meet the challenges of a 21-century world. In partnership with families and the community, YPA will create relevant and rigorous learning opportunities for students that help them develop the knowledge, critical thinking skills, and character necessary to succeed in a technologically advanced world.
