    I think this school is excellent! The teachers work with you very well and help you when needed. The teachers always make sure you have something to do so that you are always still learning. Depending on the teachers they don’t give lots of homework. The students are fun! You always feel included and not left out. York has so many activities so that you don’t really get bored fast. There is always something to do! For lunch, you get to hang out with your friends and get to go out by your self!

    York Prep has been an excellent school for my child.
    The Jump Start program has made such a difference in learning.
    Also, the small class size offers a better learning environment.
    The teachers and administration have always been available and collaborative.
    We are so happy that we found York!
    York Prep School has been wonderful for our 12 year old daughter. She did not fare so well at other private schools with large classes. At York she learns in very small classes with a curriculum geared towards how she learns. She has never been so successful in her academics and has never been so happy, both socially and emotionally!
