About Us

About The School Station

The School Station (TSS) is owned by Yun Yi, a former elementary school teacher.  She and her sister, Esther, run the daily operations of the store.  TSS first opened its doors on Sept. 1, 2012, and we have expanded the selections and variety offered since then.  

We understand the importance of what teachers and parents do on a daily basis, and we are excited to help them find the resources they need.  We carry items from a growing list of vendors, and we are always looking to improve and grow.

We truly love and appreciate all of our customers!  :)
