Principal's Message

Front of Yankton High School
On behalf of the entire Yankton High School staff, I extend a very warm welcome!  We look forward to working with you and expect that your son/daughter will have a wonderful high school experience.

We have high expectations for our students in academics, school activities and behavior. Yankton High School is a learning community where success is expected, and achieved. We also realize students learn best in a safe and caring environment, which includes being respectful of others, regardless of race, gender, and socio-economic status. I ask that you join me and the staff at YHS in working to help assure success and safety for all students who attend YHS.

Your son/daughter has tremendous opportunities to excel through Advanced Placement and dual credit courses, career and technical education course offerings, extra-curricular/fine arts, and opportunities to participate in numerous clubs and organizations. Yankton High School offers a firm foundation for a lifetime of success!
   The success of your son/daughter is positively affected by:
  • Regular Attendance
  • Completing Homework
  • Involvement in Extra Curricular and Fine Arts
  • Parents who are supportive of the school and are involved with their children
  • Individual commitment to success and obtaining goals
Please join the staff at Yankton High School and me in this successful journey!
Principal Mr. Todd Dvoracek
