Mission-Driven and Guided by our Values
The school schedule supports and delivers York’s mission. In designing the schedule, our process was guided by the following values:
Student Health and Wellbeing: An 8:30 start time prioritizes sleep, while a rotation of classes, advisory, study periods, and scheduling music and arts during the day creates variety and keeps each day fresh and interesting!
The Importance of Arts, Academics, and Physical Activity: All academic experiences, such as visual and music ensembles as well as core courses, occur during the day, with sufficient time for inclusive, competitive sports after school.
Collaboration Time: The opportunity for collaboration is valued by minimizing conflicts for club meetings, tutorial time, department meetings, faculty meetings, and grade-level meetings.
