Handles bullying effectively: Strongly agree


- a
Bullying is not tolerated. The students participate in ethics programs.

Supports LD students: Agree


- a
The school has a special program called Jumpstart that is designed to provide one-on-one and group sessions to provide assistance. It is excellent. In my experience, though, the school does not always follow the IEP on file for its students.


Effective school leaders: Strongly agree


- a
The headmaster founded the school and it is his life's passion. The principal also cares very much about the school and its students and it shows in his leadership.

Develops character: Strongly agree


- a
The school has an ethics program which is very meaningful and thoughtful. Bullying is not tolerated at all.

Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree


- a
They care. They are engaged, prepared and thoughtful and very accessible to both parents (where necessary) and students.


Amount of homework: Strongly agree


- a
All of the students assignments and grades are listed on a web-based platform called Edline. Assignments are listed daily and assessment scores are listed weekly so it is very easy for both parents and students to chart progress and ensure that all work is being submitted and completed.

My son has attended York Prep since the 8th Grade. He has taken all honors classes and has had wonderful engaged and thoughtful teachers and is well prepared for college. (He will be attending his first choice top level LAC next year after being admitted Early Decision). The school could use some lab facilities and more opportunity for experimentation in science, but the curriculum is well thought out and well taught. The teachers at this school truly care about the kids. They know them well (classes are very small -- I think the very largest class that my son has ever been in is 18 people) and they care about them as both scholars and people. It's a small and very caring school with teachers who love teaching, are knowledgeable in their subject matter and are always ready to meet with students who would like enrichment or help..

Cannot say enough good things about this school for our child who came from a very different progressive school and suffered greatly in that former environment. Our son was diiagnosed with ADHD, and has a defiicit in excutive functioning skills. York has incredibly gifted teachers who understand a wide range of learning styles, and who embrace each child for who they are. The Jump Start program is a gift, for anyone who avails themselves of it. Children learn to advocate for themselves and learn their strenghts and weaknesses. How rare that is. Thank you, York Prep.

I attended York Prep school back in the late 90s and it was a great experience being there as the teachers were very helpful and accommodating to all the students even when the students were having hard times.



- a
We've been at this school for 3 years and so far our experience has been great. Our son is doing great in class, sports and has great friends. They don't teach the CORE, which is one of my favorite things about the place. There are days that are hard for my son but it's school and not everything is easy, I'm fine with that.
