I am currently a student at Yorktown High School. I consider me and my fellow students very lucky to attend such an excellent school. The staff and my peers push me to be greater academically and socially. I felt like I could ask my teachers to help me with any problems I had, and that they actually cared about my future. My high school has legendary pep rallies every year to try and boost school spirit. I know that when I graduate from YHS, I will be ready for college, and whatever challenges come my way!
Yorktown has been a great experience! I have gone to Yorktown since I was in Kindergarten, and I have loved both the teachers and my fellow students. I would, like to see some better, fresher food, if anything. Other than that, awesome, academics, people, and overall community.
