• York International School

    Discover a World of Learning

    York International School is committed to high achievement, academic rigor, and student success. York’s strong and supportive classroom structures encourage students to become lifelong learners, critical thinkers, problem solvers, and community leaders. All students are held to high expectations and are given access to the tools and resources necessary to thrive in our college and career-going culture.

    The Advancing York initiative is how we plan to work with families, students, staff, and community members to make room for the next level of academic excellence and international opportunities as we step away from our partnership with the International Baccalaureate Programme. 

    What will be different? The IB logo will no longer be displayed in our school.

    What will be the same? Our focus on academic rigor and everything else students and families love about York will remain the same.

    What will be better? So much more!  

    Successful York students are highly active learners and well-rounded students with a strong commitment to academics and the York community.  York students are encouraged to participate in clubs, sports, and community service activities. The expectation is that students will be academically prepared to begin college-level coursework in 11th grade. 

    York students follow a high attendance and behavior code of ethics. York is a closed campus; however, off-campus lunch is available to 11th and 12th-grade students who meet attendance, academic and behavior expectations. 

    Successful students at York have a high level of respect for themselves, other students, and all school staff. Parent involvement at York is strongly encouraged.  Parents can volunteer in classrooms, on field trips, through fundraisers, and various school activities throughout the year.
