Central York School District Reviews

40 reviews
All Categories
Central York is a terrific school district, dedicated to the success and achievements of its students. They provide their students with all of the resources and materials that they need to perform beyond expectations. The teachers are truly preparing the students for college by providing SAT prep, AP exam reviews, and tons of one-on-one tutoring. The overall school environment is very comfortable and safe. Likewise, it's a diverse district with people of all backgrounds. If I must say something that I would like to change about the district, it would be all the use of electronics in the classroom. The students are all greatly exposed to electronics, however, I am not entirely in favor of their desire to go paperless. Ipads and laptops became a huge aspect of the classroom and although they may help enhance the learning experience, I still prefer the traditional way of learning, pen and paper. I think electronics can easily become a major distraction in the classroom.

Everything about Central York School District is outstanding. Teachers engage with students and try their best to help students strive for greatness. Teachers provide one-on-one time for students in need, SAT preparation and tutorials. Students also help other students achieve their goals. The clubs and sports programs are available to showcase /enhance individual talents and the community at large has access to show their support. For students and teachers, the distric provides the latest technology and resources for accurate teaching and Parents are able to participate in the Mass Communicate Learning program. Central provides healthy food for students and teachers for breakfast and lunch along with food for summer workouts and before game meals for the the athletes , in addition to Panther food pantry for families. In the highschool, the school has flags that represents the diversity of the student body along with an annual diversity program to celebrate our community.
Central York does a great job of making everyone feel included and safe, however, I believe that sometimes they focus more on that than getting their students prepared for the next step after high school graduation. The district is very up to date on technology, but it can overpower what the students actually want considering that many of us prefer paper and pencil to the fancy technology devices they give us. Overall, my experience there wasn't anything to really remember, it was simply just my four high school years.
