This concept is fostered in all grades. Taking personal responsibility for oneself and student's peers certainly has had an impact on granddaughter's school and home environment.

My granddaughter has been attending this school since age 3, I cannot imagine her going anywhere else. Her education and support of thereof has been wonderful. The teachers and staff here really care about the student AND his/her family.


Teacher effectiveness: Strongly agree

With more than half of the teachers having advanced degrees, the classes being kept much smaller than the national average and continuing education for the teachers as well...YCDS teachers are absolutely effective.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
Students have intense studies within school hours that supports not only their education, but also the well-rounded development of each student. This well-rounded development includes the real-life experiences and interactions that only occur while with family and within the community. For this reason, it is my belief that the homework is assigned within reason.

Develops character: Strongly agree

Values such as honesty, integrity and fairness are promoted and developed daily at YCDS through the many experiences each student has while attending here.

My daughter has been at YCDS since preschool and will be entering 4th grade next year. She is supported and challenged in all aspects. The faculty and staff are awesome and innovative in their approach that promotes the love for learning. My child is confident and comfortable in taking on new experiences. The academic level is top notch and students consistently achieve far above average SAT scores. They are encouraged to reach out past themselves and are taught to be constructive, active members of their community. One thing that I clearly remember from my initial visit to the school, is that not ONE student that I passed in the hallway wasn't happy there and they gave off the vibe that they were fully engaged in their education. I was very impressed then and remain as such. I look forward to my daughter's development as she moves up through middle school and upper school as I know she will be fully prepared to excel in her endeavors thanks to YCDS.

Our High School son can take any class at York College. He loves his teachers and coaches. He can't wait to get to school each day.

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.
