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.
