Our Vision

York Avenue’s vision is to develop responsible, respectful life long learners who collaborate and accept one another in an inclusive, safe school community. Our students will be given opportunities to serve as role models, creative thinkers, and problem solvers to develop the building blocks for success.


Our Mission

We, the students, families, and staff at York Avenue believe that all students can learn, grow, and thrive. The school community will:

  • provide a safe, nurturing, and inclusive school climate.

  •  encourage respect and acceptance for individuals within the context of their own distinctive ethnic, linguistic, and socioeconomic backgrounds, as well as their particular abilities, genders, and emotional or physical differences.

  • support all students to ensure a high level of success.

Our Motto

"Believe To Achieve" at York Avenue
