    School Philosophy

    At York Academic School, we believe that learning must be centered on each child’s ability to reach their full potential.  As educators and role models, we nurture this belief in all children.  We have a strong emphasis on academics and citizenship and provide a safe learning environment that encourages students to take risks in their learning.  Our students must have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be global citizens.

    We believe if children cannot learn the way we teach, we must teach the way they can learn.  We believe in fostering open and honest communication between teachers, students, and parents to develop positive self-awareness and a love of learning.

    We are committed to developing students who are truly literate.  Students must be actively engaged in their learning, think deeply about what they have learned and know how to problem solve.

Welcome!

York Academic School is a safe, caring environment where all children are challenged to be their very best. The success of York students is due to their responsible and active participation in their own learning. Staff, students and parents work together to support the learning and academic success of each child.

At York, we are committed to developing students who are truly literate. The term literacy related to both reading and writing in all content areas and suggests the simultaneous development and mutually reinforcing effects  of these two aspects of communication. We want students to think deeply and express themselves in all content areas. Students need to become independent thinkers who know how to problem solve.

Principal's Message

Welcome to York School! I am very excited to be joining the York community for the 2016/17 school year and to work with our students, staff and families as we continue to create a supportive and enriched learning environment for all. 

In partnership with our parents and community, we are committed to providing a safe and secure environment that will allow each of our students to grow intellectually, socially, emotionally, physically and culturally. We have an outstanding, dedicated staff who have very high expectations for student learning and behavior. We are proud to have an incredibly supportive and dedicated parent community as partners in learning. Parent involvement is essential to achive our goals, and we value and encoursge the participation of parents as members of our leanring community.

York has a tradition of outstanding academic achievement due, in part, to the supportive relationships which exist between home and school. We will ensure that timely, ongoing communication occurs through newsletters, agenda books and SchoolZone. Please check your child's agenda book on a daily basis, as it is an excellent source for information.

This year marks the 50th Anniversary for York school, and plans are in place to celebrate this incredible milestone on September 30, 2016. Please contact the York Main Office for more details.

Please feel free to contact me at any time with questions or concerns as we have an open door policy here at York school.  It is my focus that when our students leave our school, they will have the knowledge, skills and attitudes that will allow them to be successful in whatever their future holds.

Mr. Wes Myck
Principal
