I genuinely love my school! Yonkers Middle/High School is an excellent school, it challenges the students to expand their knowledge, and the teachers are consistently there to help benefit the students. The teachers prepare, the students to become diligent students. Nonetheless, Yonkers High is also commonly known for it's IB curriculum but also holds AP classes. The diversity in the school is incredible. In addition; there are multitudes of clubs, and activities held here at Yonkers High, for example, the Ace Club, the Key Club, and furthermore. The food and sports here aren't quite the best, however, the resources given to the students is exceptional. Parent involvement is as easy as involving the students, however, Yonkers High School is a place where teachers, facilities, and students all strive for the best.

The teachers are absolutely phenomenal and make every second you spend at YHS worth it! They're with you every step of the way and push you to your academic limit, which just expands it to a new and improved level. Although the food is downright repulsive and the administrators try to extend an excessive amount of power over you, the clubs and academics are phenomenal.
Yonkers High School is a very challenging school where students truly have to work hard in order to excel in all classes- which is the main reason I love the school! There is a variety of classes to choose from, including AP and IB classes. Both of these classes I have taken and it is a great opportunity for students to get ahead in their academics before beginning college. Yonkers High School has amazing staff and is a great place all students would love. However, if I did have to change one thing, it would be to reintroduce the precalculus class. Last year, I had the privilege to take part in the precalculus class and due to this, this year I am doing very well in AP calculus. I believe all students should be able to take precalculus, but they can not since the program was cut.
