For those parents and students who are willing to make a commitment to their child s education, then York School is the place to be .. The school is academically challenging, the teachers are fabulous, and the support staff is there to assist with any issues. I have two children one that has already graduated and gone on to college and one that will be graduating in 2014. While both children had a different experience at York, they will walk away with fond memories of the friend they made, the classes that shaped them, the plays they participated in, the JSA debates, the sleepless nights studying but most importantly the knowledge that was imparted to them by everyone at York. The teacher s encourage the students to be passionate about learning. All students are treated equally and with respect by the staff and in turn the students do that with each other. I entrusted my children to York and with their guidance and education, they gave me two beautiful, bright, intelligent, independent young women. Thank you York.

Beyond the academics and broad exposure to the arts and athletics, the two things I most appreciate about York is how it cultivates tolerance and respect for all members of the school community, and how it recognizes and celebrates the unique package of strengths and characteristics that each student brings.

My son is having an excellent experience. Teachers know him, recognize his strengths, and help him with his weaknesses. He has a diverse group of friends and the environment encourages him to be his best--as a person and student. He loves sports and has found the athletics very satisfying--lots of time on the field and positive,encouraging coaches. Students are engaged in all facets of their learning and learn to build relationships with teachers--a skill that will serve them well in college and beyond.

It is a joy to work for this school. Why? Because of the students. They are committed, engaged, funny, independent, creative, and very much their own people. The robust scholarship program allows for meaningful socio-economic diversity. Teachers are there to engage in thoughtful conversations with students. They are devoted to professional excellence. Our parents are our partners, a significant tribute to the strength of community. At York, education isn't just about getting into some brand name college; it's about the joy of learning and engagement with life!

Ever since our grandson, started at York, we have been extremely grateful for the education he has been getting. Teachers talk to the students, not over them, and that's a big plus.
