Welcome to Yates Primary
We are so glad you've come to visit our "little" corner of the world. Yates happily serves approximately 400 of Cleveland's youngest citizens, pre-school through second grade. Our school is a warm, caring environment where young minds grow. The parents and teachers have high expectations, and provide the support for each child to achieve their individual goals. We invite you to come on in and visit our website, or better yet... our school. However, you need to be sure you're ready to learn, have fun, and smile while doing it!
