Student teacher ratio is great. Teachers mostly really, care. Campus is small and beautiful. Parents are involved and so are the teachers
The teachers and faculty are amazing, sweet and always willing to help. The students are genuine, although there may be some drama between classes. Being a college prep school, the courses are challenging and are on par with if not harder than actual college courses. However, what makes York so desirable is the fact that it does not just strive for academics excellence, but developing the character of the individual in and out of the classroom. This school has access to many clubs, extracurriculars, and competitive sports programs. If you're child is academically motivated, choose York.
