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.

My favorite things about York are the teacher and student relationships, the welcoming community, the ability to join any sports team you want (only varsity tryouts), and the freedom. The teachers are so friendly and always willing to help. I have gone in countless times during lunch, free periods, after school, before school, and tutorial time (time where you can go to teachers if you need help or just hang out with friends) to ask teachers questions. I also love how you can join any sports team you want because there are no tryouts for JV. Even if you have NEVER played the sport before and have no idea how to play. Finally, I love the freedom York allows. Some examples of this are that there is no dress code, you can basically have your phone out whenever (probably not a good idea when a teacher is talking though), and you have free periods where you can do anything you want (homework, hangout with friends, go off campus, watch Netflix, take a nap etc).
you come to this school for the academics. That being said, the course load is as hard as you make it to be. The school is not only good in the humanities and STEM, but there is quite a lot of focus on the arts as well. Sports are there, but not a huge part of the school. Teachers are always willing to stop what they're doing and help students. We even have devoted periods during the day called "tutorials" where students can go to teachers with questions.
