The school cares a lot about academics and sports but lacks some arts education. A very great school, though!
Review York Suburban Senior High School
York Suburban Senior High School provides an excellent, invigorating academic environment and makes it challenging for the students who attend. The administration is a bit strict, but the rules set are most certainly reasonable. Extracurriculars are great, but in recent years have been somewhat cut due to the budget. Overall, this school is doing well to prepare its students for the academic and social future beyond high school!
York Suburban High School is one of the best schools in the nation. My son has had some difficult assignments over the 3 years he has been there, but all of this is preparing him well for college. He has had very good teachers who have stretched him when he didn't want to be stretched. The school is relatively small, since the district is landlocked, which means his class sizes are 20-30 students, which is good. The only negative for my son, even from elementary school is making friends there. He has a few, but considers himself one of the "nerds" and has been picked on from time to time over the years. However the School district as a whole has a no bullying policy and holds assemblies periodically on the subject.
