"To promote academic excellence for students at all times in a safe and nurturing environment."
"Youree Drive Middle AP Magnet School, a nationally recognized school of academic excellence and achievement, moves forward embracing the challenges of a more diversified and technologically driven community of learners. We acknowledge the various learning styles of students and the need to meet their needs through cutting-edge technology, differentiated curricula, and specialized learning environments. This will be accomplished through professional development workshops and cooperative administrative and staff planning. Youree Drive administrators, teachers, and staff also recognize the importance of parental and community involvement by continuing to promote a strong school PTSA. It is our hope that by creating a safe, nurturing learning environment that promotes respect of both students and teachers, we will prepare our students for the 21st century."
