<p>Yates Elementary School is Brandon's first standalone elementary school. School officials and patrons in 1954 dedicated the school named in honor of Walter S. Yates, a former Hillsborough County supervisor of rural schools (a position no longer in effect). The school's colors are maroon and white and the mascot, an "Eaglet," or baby eagle. Yates is a feeder school to Brandon High, which sports the same colors and is the home of the Eagles. The high school's motto: "Once an Eagle, Always an Eagle."</p>
<p>Yates in 2004 celebrated its 50th anniversary with the planting of a second time capsule. In the outdoor hallway outside the main office words on a wooden beam read: "A Legacy of Learning, Est. 1954."</p> <p>The school's vision is "to exceed all state and federal standards." Its mission is "to enable students to experience the joy of learning, show continuous growth and become lifelong learners who contribute positively to society."</p> <p>Yates is a uniform school. Students can wear white, navy, or burgundy shirts or blouses with sleeves and collars. School-sponsored T-shirts can be worn on Fridays with the required uniform shorts, pants, skirts, skorts or jumpers in navy or khaki colors.</p>
