The school is pretty good. This school has incredible teachers and staff who work to bring a positive environment for all students! Its only drawback lies in the limited amount of sports and facilities. The school shares a building with the college and we are very small. However, all students are expected to work through the rigorous curriculum and can do so with the aid of York College facilities such as the library and computer center. The small school atmosphere provides students with lasting relations with the staff and each teacher and devote more time into each student helping the student become more ready for college.

The little network in this school permits a closer association with instructors and tormenting turns out to be extremely extraordinary because of these conditions. Building up a closer association with instructors enables understudies to get more help at whatever point required. Also, the thorough courses that the school offers help the improvement of understudies and sets them up for the school life. One thing that could be enhanced in the school is number of projects and clubs accessible.
