Open Quote As a parent of two kids who have attended York Prep for nine year, I have been very pleased with the school! The teachers really care about the students and help them to succeed! Close Quote

Open Quote As a parent, may children attended many different forms of schools (private, public, magnet, virtual, homeschool and Governors School) depending on each child's academic situation. Now as a grandparent, I have watched this first year charter school with great interest. Although YPA struggles in some areas (overcrowding ... establishing new routines) it is right on target in all the ways that truly count (teacher dedication, student engagement, rigorous academics and service for students with special needs). YPA is off to a good start and well worth investing in! Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
