WE ARE COMMUNITY

A community is a social unit that shares norms, values, customs, and identity.

WE ARE SCHOOL SPIRIT

"We believe in the value of courage, perseverance, caring, taking action, and overcoming personal obstacles to help a cause that is greater than ourselves. Terry represented all of this, and more. And it is these values that draw us together as a community. When we run with Terry, we uphold what he believed and what he did, and by so doing we help make our community a community of hope." - David Hamilton

WE ARE SCHOOL PRIDE

You'll have seen the rollout of The York School's ad campaign throughout the city highlighting our culture and offerings.

A great deal of thinking went on behind the scenes to capture the right image, but the best part of the whole experience was engaging with our student ambassadors. Thanks to everyone for helping make this a fun awareness campaign about such a dynamic school.

We’re inviting the community to get to know us better and register for our Open Houses.

Junior School Open House - Friday October 18, 9:00 - 11:00 a.m.
Middle & Senior School Open House - Thursday October 24, 7:00 - 9:00 p.m
