York High School will be hosting two days of state accountability assessments on Wednesday, April 12, and Thursday, April 13, 2023. The federal Every Student Succeeds Act requires states to assess their learning standards for English language arts (ELA), mathematics, and science.   

York Prom will take place on Saturday, April 22, 2023, at Chicago’s Aon Grand Ballroom at Navy Pier. This letter contains important information for students and parents.  
This all-inclusive evening includes transportation to and from the Prom, a strolling dinner and dessert reception, soft drinks, and dancing at Navy Pier. The cost of the Prom is $130 per person. The Post Prom cruise aboard the Odyssey has been arranged by the PTSA. The optional cruise continues to be a very popular experience and, once again, promises to complete a memorable night. Tickets for Post Prom are $40 per person for a total of $170 per person.
