Yorkville High School Reviews

When I came to Yorkville High School after being homeschooled for 7 years, I was supported every step of the way. My counselor was very flexible in figuring out my transcript, and the library was a welcoming and safe place for me. However, after I transferred across the street to the main-campus at YHS, the experience has gone down-hill. There are foreign language teachers who don't know the language they are teaching as well as the students and history teachers who loudly make degrading remarks toward the students. Even some of the special needs aids are disturbingly harsh with the children they work with. The cafeteria has no cell-service and a good amount of the food has been left out too long to be safely eaten, and the bathrooms often smell acrid with broken soap dispensers and dirty floors. Although Yorkville High School has an excellent art program, off-campus classes, and warm office ladies to greet you in the morning, unfortunately, it will not be missed.

Yorkville is a great high school. The staff here are helpful and I developed great relationships with many of them. I feel like yorkville has a variety of classes to take, and many of them prepare me for college. The only thing I don’t like is the new grading policy implemented this year. As a senior, this grading policy is very different from what I have grown up with and I don’t think this chang is for the better. Our sports are decent however, our cross country teams are what we are known for. Yorkville has a variety of clubs available so it is easy to be involved in the school and community. Overall, I have had a great high school career here!
Overall my time at Yorkville High School was amazing. The atmosphere at this school really shaped who I am today. My teachers and my coaches taught me what is meant to work hard, and how to succeed. I was a straight A student throughout my high school career, and take pride in my volunteer/ club activities, and my athletics. The only thing I would change about Yorkville High School is the grading policy. Our grading system does not prepare students for college. The only thing that counts against our grade is tests, we have no final exams, and students may retake a test if they so choose. In college, there will be final exams, students are not given a retake on tests, and homework and projects will count toward our grade. All in all my time at Yorkville is something I will always remember for the better.
