    There are couple teachers who give less than their best but overall many good teachers. It has been rated as the 9th best high school in the state and is in the top 5% in the country. They have a great AP/honors programs with a very high pass rate. They have many athletic opportunities and the community is extremely supportive of the schools activities. The administration has always tried to resolve my questions or concerns very quickly and in a very professional manner. The schools at Yorktown are the only reason we have stayed in the area.

    my school has the worst administration teachers etc. The teachers will berate the student. some will even make fun of the special-ed students. the school purposely tries to make students fail. it should be shut down

    This school presents some wonderful opportunities for students and the facilities are very good. Haven;t run into a BAD teacher yet. Most are excellent and only a couple were less inspired. The principal is dedicated to constant improvement and I found her very responsive to the few concerns we have. I do wish there was more active activities in the science and engineering areas but other than that truley an excellent school.

    This school can have alot of high ratings but that doesn't tell you how many students are suffering with poor grades and how little they are assisted. THe "guidance" area of this school needs some weight lifted from old-timers and some new younger life brought in who really want to help students succeed and offer encouragement. There is some real cliquish adminsitrative stuff in this high school that needs improvement - lots of "favoritism". School if overrated...atmosphere is bad.
