the adults who run the school and athletics only reward those who they favor and treat other kids as if they dont exist or worse single them out.

there is a closed community type feel , favoritism is rampid and nepotism is blatant. there is undoubtedly a clique type thing going on with the administration and athletics. however there are a lot of great kids its unfortunate that it is ruined by adults who have never lived life outside of an academic atmosphere and still behave like they are in high school. there are some good teachers though who stay above all the bull

There are couple teachers who give less than their best, but overall many good teachers. It has been rated as the 9th best high school in the state and is in the top 5% in the country. They have a great AP/honors programs with a very high pass rate. They have many athletic opportunities and the community is extremely supportive of the schools activities. The administration has always tried to resolve my questions or concerns very quickly and in a very professional manner. The schools at Yorktown are the only reason we have stayed in the area.

my school has the worst administration, teachers, etc. The teachers will berate the student. some will even make fun of the special-ed students. the school purposely tries to make students fail. it should be shut down

This school presents some wonderful opportunities for students and the facilities are very good. Haven;t run into a BAD teacher yet. Most are excellent and only a couple were less inspired. The principal is dedicated to constant improvement, and I found her very responsive to the few concerns we have. I do wish there was more active activities in the science and engineering areas, but other than that, truley an excellent school.

This school can have alot of high ratings but that doesn't tell you how many students are suffering with poor grades and how little they are assisted. THe "guidance" area of this school needs some weight lifted from old-timers and some new younger life brought in who really want to help students succeed and offer encouragement. There is some real cliquish adminsitrative stuff in this high school that needs improvement - lots of "favoritism". School if overrated...atmosphere is bad.
