Central York School District Reviews

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.
