School Official Point of View

At Yorktown, we want your child to have a fulfilling and inspiring life. So we take a dramatically different approach to their education. And it’s working. Because our students are excelling at levels that traditional schools simply can’t deliver. Our education model is student-centered, which means each individual student progresses according to their own accomplishments - academically, socially, personally. From the development of custom curriculum, to the integration of personal interests and a flexible cohort-based campus environment, every detail is designed to teach students to discover and do what they love. The result? Higher achievement. And ultimately, happy, engaged, fulfilled children and young adults. And - when we fulfill our vision - a peaceful, more prosperous world for the next generation.

Teacher effectiveness:
SCHOOL LEADER
Teachers work in a supportive cooperative atmosphere, just like the students. The founder has a Dean of School to work directly with the teachers, student and parents to improve effectiveness. The school is even paying for a teacher's PHD degrees.

Amount of homework:
SCHOOL LEADER
We do not have homework at the school. We have a course of study customized for each student. They can choose to work on some of the material at home but the school hours are open and the teachers are present to provide individual attention.

Develops respect:
SCHOOL LEADER
Respect is our key value. This is one of the reasons we are not a religious school. We are secular to prepare people to work in the real world. We have Christians, Jews, Muslims, Hindu, Buddhist and other world view points here. Ee are preparing our students to thrive and prosper in the real world when they graduate.

Develops empathy:
SCHOOL LEADER
We do not rank students and pit them against each other in competition. Our student help each other to achieve at higher levels and learn to be nice, and cooperate for mutual benefit. Good behavior is a mandatory part of the culture and our students would not have it any other way.

My daughters transcript was a joke. Her classes at Yorktown were taught by teachers she could never find. Her language class with Rosetta Stone didn't teach her anything. Thank goodness I knew math to teach her.

We always have at least one teacher per room who can reset or try to help out a kid.

Amount of homework: Just right

If you do your work on time during the day you shouldn't have homework but if you dont finish on time then you might have a few assignments to finish. Usually a day's work is 3-4 quizzes a day if not less, depending upon the class and schedule.
