I hope that you will join us for the York High School 8th Grade Academic and Activity Night, held at York on Wednesday, December 4th. We will open our Athletics and Activity Fair in the Fieldhouse at 6:15 PM for students to have the opportunity to check out different clubs, activities, and athletic programs with student and staff representatives.

The statewide Illinois 5Essentials Survey is now open for parents to share thoughts about your experiences with our school. This survey provides critical input to help develop school improvement plans. The survey takes about 10 minutes.Your identity and survey responses will be kept completely confidential and will never be connected to you or your child. 

On Tuesday, September 17, 2019, Elmhurst Community Unit School District 205 and York High School officials were alerted by Elmhurst Police Department about a school-related Internet threat. York High School has and will continue to cooperate with the investigation.

The York Speech Team hosted its first invitational in school history.
“York’s Royal Court Invitational” had 18 schools participate in this inaugural event.
The team scored 403 points and had 31 finalists, the most finalist of any other school and a team record. (Since York hosted the tournament we did not compete for a team trophy.)

Congratulations to Head Coach Kevin Martin who has coached the speech team for the past 4 years.  Also congratulations to assistant coaches; John Forsythe, Kate Dowling, Justin Ali, Mike Kolodziej and Emily Silver.

We would also like to thank our wonderful speech parents, coordinated by Jessica Gatti, who ran the concession stand for us.
