Grace Yokley is a public school in the Mountain View School District. My son went to Ranch View Elementary school, also in the same district. He was extremely bored in elementary school and I was nervous about him entering into Middle School.
He decided to join band and for the first few months of school in the 6th grade he seemed so excited. The music teachers at Grace Yokey, Karen Shupenia (I know she just got married, not sure of the new last name) is amazing with the kids. She has A LOT of patience and for the first few weeks to months they spend just trying out different instruments and hearing how they sound and she talks about them. Then they decide what they would like to play. It is overall a great experience and my son is now entering into the 8th grade and still loves his french horn and playing music and being a part of a group.
