We originally looked at York for college preparedness and academics. What we came to appreciate about York once our oldest daughter enrolled were: 1) The teachers are devoted and set the bar high, then they support and encourage students to get there; 2) The sports teams are competitive. They want to win to like everyone else, but refuse to compromise on integrity, camaraderie, fairness, and team spirit; and 3) York’s campus culture doesn’t just value kindness and compassion, they live it.
