YCDS is a great school. All of the kids are involved in arts and sports and do well academically. There are grads at Swathmore, Johns Hopkins, Georgetown, Tufts, Colby this list goes on. Our Junior loves it. The teachers are great the other kids are smart and hard working. We just can't say enough great things about the school. They don't like to brag but the average SAT is over 1800... the best in county by a ton.
York Country Day School prepared all three of our children for success in college. The transition to the independence of college was seamless. All three have fully engaged with their college professors and productively embraced their academic studies as well as the total university community life. YCDS taught them how to be life-long learners and responsible young adults.
It has top-notch teachers and is very small...allows personal contact and each child has invidual attention.
Our fourth grade son loves Country Day! We think the new language arts program is great and the new gym teacher is awesome.
I just love ycds. My middle school son and high school daughter love it as well. There are two particullar teachers who my kids just love, the 8th grade history teacher Bill Walker and the 7th and 8th grade english teacher Greg Tomevi. They are just amazing
Great middle school! Our 7th grader is involved, challenged, and cared for. We think the theater program is incredible!
Excellent school, new Headmaster will be awesome for the school. great education and wonderful environment for students to prosper
We love YCDS! Our middle school son is both supported and challenged. The art and music programs are incredible. Our high school daughter is thriving in the magnet program and involved in everything. The school is small in numbers but course offerings (W/YCP) seem never ending.
YCDS has been great for both our children. We love the teachers and the small classes. Great academic and arts focus.
A great little school with a strong and caring faculty. The prefect high school choice for the hard working academic kid who wants to be involved in everything and go to a selective college. New head of school is great. Awesome lower & middle schools.
York Country Day School is a great place for my children. I get a great deal of feedback from teeachers on a regular basis. And my kids LOVE going to school. And I know they feel safe at YCDS. I recommend YCDS highly to any family looking for a great education in a great community!
