       We have high expectations for our students in academics, school activities and behavior. Yankton High School is a learning community where success is expected, and achieved. We also realize students learn best in a safe and caring environment, which includes being respectful of others, regardless of race, gender, and socio-economic status. I ask that you join me and the staff at YHS in working to help assure success and safety for all students who attend YHS.
       Your son/daughter has tremendous opportunities to excel through Advanced Placement courses, Career and Technical Education course offerings, Extra-curricular/Fine Arts and opportunities to participate in numerous clubs and organizations. Yankton High School offers a firm foundation for a lifetime of success!
   The success of your son/daughter is positively affected by:
