Dear York School Community,

If it were a popularity contest, The York School could boastfully claim to have the most wanted students.

All of our students have received multiple offers of admissions from various Universities. But that's not what it's about when choosing a University. It's about finding the best fit program with where you want to go.

For more than a year, our graduating students have been researching, exploring and evaluating post-secondary opportunities. They have been on a quest to find their ‘gift’ and target those schools that would best fulfil their ambitions beyond York.

Their passions, academic and co-curricular experiences, extended essays, personalities and ambitions have helped shape their final decision on where to take their next step. The range of talent in our graduating class is phenomenal. We have:

  • Future city builders

  • Future entrepreneurs

  • Future thinkers

  • Future film makers and dancers

  • Future health care professionals and scientists

  • Future change agents for social responsibility

  • Future Engineers and architects

They will leave The York School with confidence, not afraid of hard work, and keen to make a positive contribution to the world. We could not be more proud of our graduates, IB thinkers through and through!

CLASS PARENT RECRUITMENT FOR 2019-20

Class parents play an essential role in keeping our school community strong by engaging parents in their class and keeping them updated on school events.

Class Parents are the liaisons between the school and the parents in their class. Class Parents are typically asked to serve for approximately 2 years.  Each homeroom will have two class parents. To ensure continuity for a succession plan, if possible, each homeroom will ideally have one experienced class parent and one new class parent. If parents require additional help to plan parties, it is helpful to create parent groups for specific events.

If you are interested in becoming a class parent, please fill this form and if you have questions about the role please email ypa@yorkschool.com. The school will be in touch with you in June.
