Yorktown High School is a very challenging place. They definitely prepare you for college here. Sports are a big thing at this school, but the main thing is the academics. Definitely enroll here if you want good college preparation, but expect the classes to be tough. Often I feel they overload us with class and homework. This most certainly is a difficult school to do well in, so only come if you are gifted academically. The administration I feel is uptight and has no idea how kids really work or think, but that's not a big part of this school. It's just a bit annoying hah.
My experience at Yorktown High School has been very positive. The school is an average size for a small town but holds a close-knit feel. Most of the teachers are well educated and truly do their best to help their students. The academics are at times challenging but not overbearing. There are great resources throughout the school and community to help prepare students for their future, such as a wide variety of extracurricular activities. Unfortunately, there is an apparent lack of diversity in the student body and staff. Nonetheless, Yorktown High School makes for an average but still rewarding high school experience.
