York High School has helped me become a more outgoing person. The student body and staff are all friendly and make the school feel like one large family. The students are not judging and do not care about keeping within their high school "clicks". Both the students and teachers are involved in creating school spirit and having fun throughout the year. The teachers get the information across and explain everything in a way that makes sense and that sticks with the students. They create great atmospheres in the classroom where everyone feels welcome to ask questions and is involved. The teachers also take their time to explain test taking strategies for AP and IB exams and even SATs as well as how to write long papers. There is also a club for just about everything, many of which donate for a good cause and are intertwined into the school's everyday life. Anyone can easily make their own club or join. The school itself is generally clean; however, there are occasional pest issues.

I loved most everything about my experience here. The environment can be completely different for everyone though. A lot of the high school experience here is determined by how much external effort you put into it. Luckily, the staff, students, and teachers are generally friendly.
York has had very nice and helpful teachers over the years. My guidance counselor has always had my best interests in mind and always helped me to stay on track. We even have a sheriff who patrols the hallways in the morning! I also like the close-knit community of York County. I would recommend this school to anyone.
