York has opened so many doors and opportunities for me. They care about every aspect of school: academics, athletics, activities, drama, music department and more. The teachers are qualified and always willing to help. The lunchroom even has super good food. The school also has a counselor designated just for the college admission process, that is knowledgeable about all things college. York also offers many dual credit classes that have allowed me to receive many college credits highly acclaimed universities. The only it would not be a 5 would be that the administration can sometimes be over bearing and take away privileges and go a bit overboard. But nonetheless, it is a great school that offers amazing opportunities
I had a great high school experience at York! I had so many great teachers that they outweigh some of the not so great teachers I've had. If you try and make an effort, your teachers will help you succeed. I also took advantage of some of the resources they had like the math lab. Elmhurst is a runner's town so cross country and track are the school's best sports. The football team isn't good though. If there's anything bad about this school, it is its huge drug problem but administration doesn't really do much about it.
