I actually found the admissions staff to be one of the kindest of all NYC private schools. They called back in a timely manner, showed compassion, enthusiasm in a professional manner. These schools are hard to gain acceptance to, but if your child did not get in,it stings, but you must believe this ...  Read more

If it were not for the time and effort Mr. and Mrs. Stewart put forward toward my candidacy, I would never have had the courage or confidence in myself to apply to an Ivy League school. This kind of personal interaction and guidance define education at York Prep. York provided me with a learning experience ...  Read more

York Prep is a true gem of a school. Their mission of ensuring each child's success works through small class size, weekly progress reports on-line, an excellent, caring faculty and a hands-ons administration. College guidance is simply the best I have encountered; organized, supportive & appropriate. ...  Read more
