I am an alumni from York High School and I really enjoyed all four years of YHS. The teachers are awesome and friendly and easy to talk to. They really try to prepare you for your future and tell you how important a lot of things you learn in high school are for the future. They extracurriculare activities that YHS offers are awesome and each one succeeds very well. The sports groups are very successful and the athletes are very dedicated because of how much fun they have and the coaching! The faculty at YHS are very good at what they do and they really care about each and every student there and their success. They made it evident to me, when I was there, that my future is important to them and that they were going to be there if I ever needed help with anything. The relationships that are made there are great too.

Overall, I did not have a good experience here. I always tried my best in every class and every activity that I was involved in, however, it was never good enough. This school only cares about the students that right connections, especially if their parents are willing to donate a lot of money. They always ignored students who were just as talented/smart or even better just because they didn't have the right last name. If I could just give one piece of advice to them, it would be to do better.
I love being a Duke it’s been the best thing ever. We have great teachers. We bring in student from different countries and it’s great learning about the their cultures. We have great sports teams such as out football, softball, basketball and wrestling programs we all work really well together cause we’ve played with each other since we were in elementary school together. We have great classes such as our college classes which actually prepare us for our years in college we also have career academy classes that are also like college courses but help us with what we want to go into.
