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.
The classes available are great and useful. They have a PLTW program that gets kids interested in STEM a headstart from everyone else by being able to take classes involving those topics. However, they made changes to the curriculum that make students underprepared for the college experience in which only tests and quizzes are counted as grades and are allowed unlimited retakes which make the students careless to succeed the first time around which would never happen in a college course.
