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.
