The thing I love about York Institute is the teachers. Because I am still attending York, I get to have the privilege of learning from wonderful people. Since I am a senior so many teachers have watched me grow into a young lady, and I have received nothing but support. The teachers truly care about the students education, and they want nothing but success for the students, the one thing I would want to see change is the relationship between other students. Because York is located in a small town, drama spreads fast. Personally, I wish students would uplift and encourage one another. York overall is a wonderful high school!

I love the school, right now they are going through a superintendent change, so it isn't running like it normally does. The teachers are friendly, and they care about the students. I feel like the students can be heard, but most importantly understood. With all types of programs, there is something for every student that goes there. The counselor, head of schools, and teachers make sure that everyone knows they will have someone to talk to if anything ever happens, now or ten years down the road.
It needs A LOT of work. There are very good people and teachers there, but there are some issues with getting a wider variety of classes. Also, the school itself is in bad conditions. Thanks to the wonderful custodians, it's getting better everyday. The school also needs more recreational activities that help the students come together more. There is a lot of cliques and it's hard to be a part of a school that doesn't like one another.
