York Preparatory Academy Ratings & Reviews

August 27, 2018 Submitted by a parent
Two of my children attended this school for several years. On the elementary side- we had no issues for two years. The principal is very kind, caring, and does a great job. My child's teachers were amazing. (They have since left the school though)The middle school and high school administration is absolutely lacking structure, and seems to be more concerned with testing scores than the overall wellbeing of students. There are very limited options for sports, and electives offered as well.The car line situation at the school is a nightmare (especially on the elementary side) and is a serious accident waiting to happen.The turnover rate for students AND teachers is incredibly high. I would highly recommend that you look into this prior to choosing York Prep as there is good reason for this fact. York Prep is one of the most disorganized schools my children have ever attended. It filters from the top down to the bottom which in turn creates disadvantages for students caught in the middle of the lack of structure. It is very apparent on the middle and high school sides that there are issues. We thought this would be an amazing long term opportunity for our children, but it turned out to be awful in the end.

Former Student. YPA claims not to be a religious school, yet at the senior breakfast each senior was told to attend, a christian prayer was held. When the teacher in the room was confronted and asked why students were holding prayer in a nonreligious school encouraged senior event, the teacher responded with stating that the event was payed for by a local church, which is why the prayer was held, which doesn't make the situation any less unethical. It is illegal for a student to be forced to recite the "pledge of allegiance" (that at YPA is held school wide every morning) yet in multiple classes when a student refused to stand for the pledge because they felt their race was discriminated upon in America, the student was sent to the principals office for the rest of class. This happened around 7 times in my experience. If you're looking for a nonreligious/religiously neutral school, look elsewhere.

The school has an open preference for white people, we try for years to join YPA and we couldn't. They discriminate people by race, just see the chart below, is not diversity and this school. Minorities do not have a voice in this school, they need to get a new Enrollment coordinator who is not controlling who can get in or not.

The elementary school is great. However, class sizes are too large for the teachers to effectively do their job. We are talking 25-28 kids in each class from K5-5th grade. You can tell they try to pack as many kids in each class as they can so the school can get more money. Also, the 5th graders are considered middle schoolers and they don’t get recess. My middle schooler is in Honors classes and does homework from the time he comes home in the afternoon until he goes to bed at night. He has always been a straight A student until this year. It seems that the middle school teachers could care less if the students succeed. In middle school so far, we have not seen any beta club or national honors society to acknowledge academic achievement. There is a lot of improvement that needs to be made in the middle school for sure. I do not have any kids in the high school at this time.

As a parent, I have been very happy with York Prep. I homeschooled all of my kids very effectively, but my youngest wanted to go to school. He was received with no issues and has enjoyed the school, the teachers, and the faculty. I see a low score from a student that was primarily because of the dress code. I am happy for there to be a dress code. Kids in other countries always wear uniforms to school, so here it is not a uniform, just some minimum standards and I don't see a problem with that. We have really benefitted from the help of the guidance counselor in the college and testing process - so nice to have a counselor that can know all of the kids. The principal is passionate and committed to school safety. When I visited the school, it greatly impressed me that the bathrooms, were, in fact, for going to the bathroom, and not for a gang hangout. Even almost 40 years ago when I was at Rock Hill High the bathroom was not a safe place to go. This school has as nice a look as my nephews private school in Charlotte - very impressive. Activities and communication to parents are so well done. This to me is like a private school without tuition, and highly worth any parent's consideration. I believe to be college bound, students in high school need to take the hardest levels of the courses, but that is the case in any public school. My only regret is that we didn't have him attend the school all 4 years of high school.
