York Middle School provides a high quality educational experience for the approximately 500 students in attendance, from grades 5th - 8th. We have a true middle school model, centered around learning teams at every grade level, including teacher teams of three in all grades, with each team consisting of a Math, English Language Arts and Science teacher. Social Studies teachers are shared in each grade. With our team sizes within the range of 60-70 students that is considered ideal in a middle school setting, York Middle School is able to offer a student-centered, flexible learning environment that is sensitive to the needs of individual students and developmentally appropriate for young adolescents.
In addition to a strong core academic program, York Middle School offers opportunities for students to engage in music (chorus and/or band), art (including advanced art), engineering, computer science, physical education and wellness, and enrichment opportunities for gifted students. Students have a range of middle school and intramural sports in which to participate, as well as after-school support provided by teachers . Our students participate in music honors festivals, robotics and engineering competitions, National History Day, local history experiences, and range of other activities sponsored by our teachers.
