York St School is fondly called "The Castle". This year (2012) marked the 90th birthday of this lovely building. The children represent many countries and contribute to a rich, multicultural environment. Last year the grades 3 and 6 EQAO scores rated among the highest in the province. There is a Parent, Family Learning Centre in the school that reaches pre-school aged children and their parents. The atmosphere in the school is warm and welcoming. A great place for any child.
If you are looking for a small school for your child with warm teachers and multi culturalism this is a great little school . The grade 8 class has only 40 students which allows for more hands on learning with the teacher and the opportunity to form positive strong bonds with class mates. It is a great school that gets down to old fashioned learning.
