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!

The campus was quite dull. They used most of the money for irrelevant things such as bean bags in the library which they ended up removing only a few months later (btw we still need air conditioners). There was a garden which had withering flowers and a gigantic clock tower that the school enclosed and it was an eyesore. Parking is horrible. But despite all of that, YHS has some of the best teachers you will ever find. Now by best I definitely mean personality wise--um teaching is so so. They hired some thirty year old guy that reuses powerpoint presentations from the very first time he ever started teaching. Yeah... you can already tell he's not that good of a teacher. But because of how approachable many of the teachers where, I have many memorable experiences with them and they definitely will help you because they will never leave their students behind.
Academically, there are a plethora of challenging classes for students to take, and it is very easy to register for these classes. The majority of the teachers are both kind and intelligent, and can teach their courses at a very high level. They are also quite understanding and receptive when students need extra help or they need to make up work. There are various clubs and sports for people to participate in, and there's a high emphasis on extracurriculars in the school community. As a whole, I feel it has prepared me very well for college.
