Yorkshire Academy’s West Houston Upper Elementary program is unique in its focus on the core academic courses: math, language arts, social studies, and science combined with extraordinary enrichment classes: music, art, Spanish, computer, and physical education to make for the complete education package.



Our mission is to cultivate qualities of character, citizenship, and academic curiosity in a safe, secure, and loving environment, providing personal and engaging educational opportunities in academics and the visual and performing arts. For upper elementary students, we also ensure that students graduate from fifth grade prepared for very successful social and academic middle school experiences.
