    I was one of 3 other students who at the time that the school was being built entered a contest to name the new elementary school being built in East York. I went to Heistand Elementary School in the early 1960's and graduated from York Suburban High School in 1969.

    York Suburban school district is one of the best in the region and East York is a big part of why. I have never met a more involved more understanding or more caring group of teachers or administrators.

    You can see from the numbers that academically this school is right on target. I have been pleased with the faculty and I was highly impressed with my sons second grade teacher. Being a room mother I had the chance to see his class on a weekly basis.
