Yorktown High School Reviews

As a student attending YHS, I can confidently say that I am proud to be a husker. YHS is where I've built lifelong memories and friends, all while maintain an "A" average (which will look great to colleges). We have top tier sports programs, especially in Lacrosse (even if I am not athletic), uplifting our school spirit. Our science research program (which I have been so lucky to be a part of) dominates in county/local competition and has enabled many bright young minds to present research on the international level. Yes there will be exceptions, but in general the teachers are great. I feel as though I am treated as an adult (and friend) by many of the teachers. The student body is very friendly and clearly mature. I can only say the same things about the remaining staff and administration. Overall, I love YHS and couldn't imagine my life in any other school district!

Yorktown High School is close to the center of the town of Yorktown. It is very safe, over the years new rules have been put in place. Students are watched closely, but at the same time given freedom. Sports teams are excellent, and often win, or almost win, section titles. Teachers overall are good, except a few who are known to be awful. Clean, decent food, many options in the cafeteria. Friendly administration. Not very diverse, but Westchester isn't in general. Nearly all students go to college after YHS, not going is considered odd. There are many resources during your junior and senior year to help with the college process. Lots of clubs and opportunities for everyone in sports, music, etc.
YHS has wonderful academic opportunities. Many of the teachers are absolutely fantastic, however, the student body can make it a difficult place to find where you fit in. There are so many different cliques that making new friends can be extremely difficult. Overall, though, the school provides great academic and athletic opportunities.
