York High School Reviews
My experience at York High School helped me realize how important it is to push yourself. The teachers and staff are understanding and supportive. Some teachers are sports coaches, which is creates a stronger relationship with the students as well as the athletes. The sports programs are great. The music program is also very good. York High School is a small school which means almost everyone knows each other. This allows for people to look out for each other. The addition of the auditorium created a lot more opportunities for the students as well as the community. There were many more guest speakers and school plays along with other activities that brought the student body together. I enjoyed my time there.
I have mixed feelings about York High School. First off, the teachers are either really motivated in helping students succeed, or they seem like they do not care as much as they should. The staff clearly does not know how to handle depression and anxiety (along with suicidal thoughts) with students. There aren't as many class options as I would like, but there are enough options for students who are interested in art and sciences. Overall, this school is slightly a negative place for students.
My time at York High School was very enjoyable. Overall, I loved everyone of my teachers and felt safe going to school. The school makes people want to do well in school by teachers using positive methods of discipline. Though my senior year got cut short, The 3 1/2 years I spent at York High School were the years I grew the most, mentally, physically, and emotionally. The school teachers soft skills and prepares students for communicating well in the world.
