A Glance at Daily School Life

At the Y.E.S. Institute, students have fun taking their academic courses. In their STEM classes, they usually work collaboratively in groups for the purpose of improved social interaction. They work on "hands on" activities, so they never read a textbooks. Instead, they do labs, web quests, and presentations.

Our Mission/Vision

Mission: Our mission is to provide students with a STEM/Business classroom environment in which the students are evaluated based on what they can do, rather than what they can memorize.

Vision: In the next decade, our vision is for our students to become successful in their careers and businesses so that they can solve real life problems and tasks to survive as individual adults in the technological era.

Scheduling

The Y.E.S. Institute of STEM and Business follows 4x4 block schedule. That means that students only take 4 classes per semester, but they have 1 hour and 30 minute periods. Our school has chosen this form of scheduling for the purpose of giving students more time to work on their classwork, which gives them more time to learn. School will start in August and end in May. Students go to school Mondays - Fridays from 6:00 am - 1:00 pm. This time has been chosen due to the fact that we want to give students time to do their homework and extracurricular activities.

Location/Tuition

The Y.E.S. Institute is located in the city of Santa Clara, CA. It is most commonly referred to being in the "center of Silicon Valley," which is an area that is home to many global technology businesses and companies. Tuition for our school will come to around $13,030 per year, but we do accept scholarships.

Why Us?

Our school hires experienced mentors who have worked in the fields our students are studying, so students can gain actual work experience and can learn much more content that cannot be found in a textbook. We have a main focus on STEM and Business education, so if you are math/science wiz, or if you love to lead, then this is the school for you. Since our location lies in the heart of Silicon Valley, students are far more likely to be scouted for corporations such as Apple, Google, or Microsoft rather than students who do not attend this school.
