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.
