The York Suburban School District is dedicated to a well-rounded education for all students. The District implements a challenging curriculum that is aligned to the Pennsylvania Core Standards and fulfills the District's mission. Each discipline is carefully studied by teams of experienced teachers and administrators to maintain academic rigor, critical thinking, and problem-solving skills.

Additionally, the York Suburban School District is dedicated to providing our 21st Century graduates with the knowledge, abilities, and habits to enter and complete postsecondary education or training programs that will move into successful careers. To achieve this outcome, students must acquire robust employability skills: the ability to communicate, solve problems, think critically, persevere, set goals, and work in teams. These skills are essential to equipping students to pursue their career opportunities with confidence and contribute positively to their communities. Each grade level is committed to building the aforementioned capacities in all students; as such, these skills are skillfully woven into the curriculum.
