I transferred to York as a sophomore, and this is the best place I could ever imagine for high school. This is a place where so many things are possible. I joined York’s swim team without even knowing how to swim. My coach teaches me all of the swimming techniques, including four different stokes, flip turns, and diving. My teammates support and cheer for me during every single meet, and they are truly happy for my growth. On our team, speed is not the most important thing; instead it's about having fun and to enjoying the time in the pool. Now, I am breaking my record of always being the last one to finish races. Swimming is just one example of why I am really happy at York. All of the activities here do not need tryouts, so everyone can pursue new activities and get support from others. This is what makes York unique.
