I ENJOY GOING TO YAI. EVERYONE DOES THEIR BEST TO HONOR THE MEMORY OF OUR SCHOOL FOUNDER--ALVIN C. YORK WW1 WAR HERO. THE SCHOOL OFFERS A WIDE VARIETY OF SPORTS AND ACADEMIC COURSES TO BETTER PREPARE STUDENTS FOR THE WORLD AHEAD. BECAUSE IT'S A SMALL COMMUNITY EACH STAFF MEMBER KNOWS EACH STUDENT AND FAMILY BY NAME. I FEEL IT'S AN HONOR TO ATTEND A SCHOOL THAT STARTED WITH A DREAM BY A SIMPLE FARM BOY TURNED HERO. THANK YOU, SHELBY STORIE.

Most of the teachers are helpful when it comes to helping a struggling student. They offer math tutoring which has helped many students pass difficult classes such as pre cal and college algebra. However, some teachers don’t offer help to the students and seem like they could careless about if a student succeeds or fails.
I really enjoy going to school at York. It's class sizes are small, so I get one on one time with all my teachers. The campus is beautiful and schedules are relatively easy to follow. The environment is welcoming, although there are a lot of cliches and clicks. Other than that I love the school and it's staff.
