York Comprehensive High School is a very good high school to attend. They offer a wide variety of after-school activities, including FCCLA, DECA, and Interact. The majority of the faculty is wonderful to work with and really care about the students. When I began high school in 2011, they offered three language courses - Spanish, French, and German. When I graduated in 2015, the school only offered two language courses, Spanish and French; however, the French courses had very limited participation.
York Comprehensive High School is an amazing school. The teachers who work there are very interactive and engaging in the students' lives. Many different courses are taught here with different levels of difficulty the individual student can choose from. When students have completed the state requirements to graduate, they are able to take college courses through York Tech if they choose to. The guidance counselors at this school are also very involved with the students. The counselors try to point students in the right direction, encourage the students in addition to just planning out the student's schedule. Extra courses have recently been added to the school because of a student survey. York Comprehensive is a school that tries to prepare the students for the workforce, college, or military in anyway they can. I love this school because they listen to the students, try to fulfill their requests and support them in the future path they choose.
