York High School has some wonderful attributes as well as some not-so-wonderful attributes, like most public high schools. I personally had particularly good experiences in music and social studies departments, as well as a few really remarkable English teachers. However, the science department is thoroughly lacking, as is the administration, the overall diversity of the place, and the attitude of the students.

York High School was great if you were a star athlete or in the top 15%, otherwise there's no point in going. The administration changed every year I was there (so four times) and got worse with each change. Completely unfair rules were enforced while rules that were beneficial for students were not. We barely learned anything from most required classes and 90% of us at least felt we were not ready for college after graduation. Overall I liked the school because I felt safe (York is really small) and the classes weren't horribly difficult and overwhelming. There was not much else to like.
Definitely not inclusive, especially of kids who aren’t athletes. Turnover in administration is a big problem in this town, especially at the high school. No diversity whatsoever.
