Students in York’s 8th grade take a combination of courses unique to their grade level and courses with students in upper grade levels. Six courses are required, including grade level-only courses in arts, English, history, and science. Students also enroll in appropriate math and world language courses, based on their individual levels. Students can choose to take a music ensemble, including Choir, Jazz Band, and Strings.
York School values a breadth of study, so requires the following distribution requirements for graduation. Requirements for students who enter York after the 9th grade may be altered based upon the student’s previous study. Each semester, students must enroll in six courses, except 12th graders, who may take five courses. Students who wish to take seven courses must obtain the permission of the Director of Teaching & Learning.
