York Community High School is a great academic institution that I am very blessed to have attended. It is a school not only flourishing in its academics but also in the extracurriculars that it offers. The teachers, for the most part, are very kind and committed to providing the best education for its students and there are plenty of resources to go to whenever you need help. Through its extracurriculars, York embraces the uniqueness of each and every student through offering various activities that appeal to any student and allows them to develop themselves. Overall, York is a school committed to not only preparing students for their futures by helping them grow academically, but it allows them to grow as people.

York is a weird school. Its has a large population of students with severe medical conditions which causes the amblance to come to the school a lot, sometimes twice a day. We also make it on to the news a lot from gun threats. York had some occasional racism around the time Trump got elected a couple of kids wore the "make America great again" hat and went around calling the African Americans "nigger" and yelling "build a wall" at the latin Americans. Over all its an ok school. Its not very diverse, but still fun. There are multiple clubs and all inclusive sports and even multiple different languages you can take. The teachers are really nice and help you if you ask for help. The food is Ok there are multiple options but it's just not flavored right and they wont let us add salt to give it a little flavor just pepper. They have this program where you can take a class at technology center of Dupage its a nice way to get dual credit if you are a junior or senior.
This high school truly cares about its students. There are so many ways to get involved, sports, clubs, music, theater, etc. The teachers work extremely hard to prepare you for college and know how to teach. Teachers work with you to help you succeed in the class and the future. Classmates all work together and are always there for you. Go DUKES!
