When I went to Yorkville High School, I saw a lot of opportunity. This school had the resources and staff to support just about anyone. I was able to rely on my teachers multiple times to help me through any of my academic hardships I had during my time there. Furthermore, the school has an abundance of after school activities including a diverse range of clubs and sports. Personally I joined the robotics team for all for years of my venture at Yorkville High School, and I especially loved what they did with it back in 2018. They made an off-branch of the club for ornaments and competition to take place in the school itself with other students. This solved the "too many cooks in thew kitchen" problem that infested the club for the first three years I joined it. On the subject of the school itself, it is very clean, the staff is great, and I would be more than happy to send my own kids there if I had any. Overall, it was a great school experience!
I liked that Yorkville High school provided Chromebooks for their students and had different learning environments. Students could choose blended classes and even leave campus! Although Yorkville High school accommodated students this way, I believe they could improve by offering more classes, creating more space in the building, and focusing on student mental health.
Yorkville High School is a very diverse school that includes people of all talents, dreams, sexual orientation, race, and gender. My most memorable part of going to school was being able to balance sports and school while still doing things I love. There are many teachers who are eager to help you and they allot time during the day for you to receive help for basically about anything. Yorkville has recently put in place a grading policy that only grades bigger assignments such as essays or tests. While this may seem unfair to some, It actually allows for students to be more college ready. On top of that they even have a college and career center in which they help you fill out scholarships and figure out where you should go to school based on what you want to do. However, they have gotten rid of finals. Unfortunately the school is corrupt. The diversity sometimes creates a negative environment. Within the past year the environment has escalated to more fights and drug usage than ever.
