Principal's Message

Welcome to McKinney Middle School and Yellow Springs High School, home of the Bulldogs. We are a 7-12 building serving approximately 350 students. Our middle school staff was recently recognized as the Ohio Middle Level Association Team of the Year, and our high school has consistently been recognized as one of the top high schools in the state by US News & World Report. Our district focuses on creating authentic learning experiences for our students, and we adamantly believe that students are more than test scores. My hope is that you will find this website to be a useful, dynamic place to visit, and that it will provide evidence of the rich learning experiences our students engage in and grow through. In addition, the aim is to provide timely and up-to-date information about school-wide policies and practices as well as easy access to important forms and calendars. 

This website will continue to develop in an effort to respond to our school community's needs. Such efforts will enhance partnerships through strengthened communication – all in support of our core duty to help our students learn, pursue their interests and passions, and contribute meaningfully to the world. If you have suggestions or would like information not currently available here, please feel free to contact me at 937.767.7224; or jhatert@ysschools.org

Thanks for visiting!

Jack Hatert, Principal
