Welcome to the Yosemite National Park Valley School (YVS). We have the great distinction of being located near the Visitor Center, under Yosemite Falls in the heart of Yosemite National Park. At YVS we are very proud to serve the children of the employees of the National Park Service as well as the concessions companies within the park.

Our K-6 school population hovers at around 36 pupils in multi-graded classrooms.   Yosemite Valley School has been recognized as a California Distinguished School multiple times as well as a Service Learning Leader School.

Growing up in Yosemite National Park is a unique experience and the staff of YVS are very proud to share that experience while providing an exemplary educational component enriched by all that the park and our community has to offer.
