Description:
P.K. Yonge Developmental Research School is operated by the University of Florida, in Gainesville, Florida as an independent school district and teaches from kindergarten through twelfth grade. As its name implies, it is a leader in educational development programs for the state of Florida.

Namesake

The school is named in honor of Philip Keyes Yonge (1850–1934), who served 29 years on the Florida Board of Control, the former governing body for all Florida public universities, including 22 years as its chairman. Yonge demonstrated a commitment to improve education in the state of Florida.

The School Director is Dr. Fran Vandiver. Dr. Randy Scott is the High School Assistant Principal, Mrs. Amy Hollinger is the Elementary School Assistant Principal, and Dr. Russell Froman is the Middle School Assistant Principal.

One notable feature of the school is the creek (Tumblin' Creek) that runs through the school property. The cafeteria sits on the creek and students may enjoy the Florida nature scene while dining outdoors. It also has a county and state renowned performing arts program. Its band earned a standing superior at the Florida Band Master's Assessment in 2005, 2008 and 2009. Subsequently, the band qualified for state level competition in 2008, 2009 and 2010, placing 15th, 13th, and 7th respectively in its class.
