    School Philosophy

    At York 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 of the future.

    We believe that 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.  Our goal is to ensure that every student at York receives the support and encouragement in their learning to ensure that they are successful in their futures.

Welcome!

York 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!  We are a beautiful little school located in north-east Edmonton.

York School provides a safe and caring environment where students are encouraged and supported to reach their full potential.  Children develop at different rates and learning occurs at different stages.  We work incredibly hard to meet the needs of children regardless of their learning styles, capabilities and talents.  Teachers eagerly embrace research-based instructional strategies and engage every student at his or her level.  Continual professional development ensures that teaching and learning are dynamic and up-to-date.

At York School, we put a priority on Character Education and ensuring that every student treats others in a way that recognizes and celebrates their uniqueness.  Our monthly character traits are embedded in our classroom teaching and in our KROY groups, and are celebrated at our monthly assemblies.  We promote "Bucket Filling" as a way to treat others, and encourage students use their "WITS" when hey are having a conflict with another student.  Our Heritage Week, in April, celebrates all of the unique and varied cultures which exist at our school. 

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.

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
