I think York Community High School is academically, along with the arts, an amazing school. There are great programs for students of all interests and clubs to fit all niches, however, just living in the Elmhurst area proves to lack diversity, something the school necessarily isn't at fault for. I loved all of my teachers though!

I enjoyed my time at York and had great experiences there! I loved many of my teachers and found them to do a great job teaching and keeping students engaged. Although, my ONLY complaint about York is that is lacked diversity and was not greatly inclusive of all students. I think education on social awareness and more socially aware teachers would benefit the school tremendously.
Driving down St.Charles, one may pass the train tracks and look upon York Community High School. Its grand field, long driveway, beautiful architecture, and students talking and walking about. The feeling of community and unity is apparent, and is due to the amazing opportunities students are given. From over 70 different extracurricular activities, dedicated staff, vast variety of course selection, and a loving community helping them each step of the way, students of York have everything they need to find their passion and succeed. Each students who walks in and out of that school will forever embrace the duke spirit and cherish the memories and knowledge they gained. However, one thing that can be improved is the diversity of staff. The teaching staff is a reflection of the predominantly white neighborhood surrounding the school. This affects many students are color as they are not represented in classrooms, and if more diversity is present, it can help build a stronger unity.
