    About Us

    Click HERE for School Brochure

    Grace Yokley Middle School was established in 1982, and is 2nd school in the Mountain View School District.  Our school is named after a former district secretary, Grace Yokley, in recognition of her many years of devoted service to education and to the people of our community.

    GYS has a strong commitment to the success of all its students and these characteristics are clearly demonstrated by the many dedicated parents, students and staff who make up the Grace Yokley family.

    Our mission is to bridge tomorrow's needs through today's minds. We believe that every child controls his/her destiny through self-actualizing goals and behaviors. We strive to create an equal and appropriate learning environment through caring and consistency, while providing challenging, evolving, dynamic curriculum and modes of instruction.
