York Elementary School (YES) is a traditional calendar neighborhood school, part of the STEM Schools Collaborative Network, and a STEM School of Distinction. The school is nestled in the beautiful wooded Brookhaven community (near Crabtree Valley Mall), adjacent to the Brookhaven Nature Park. York Elementary has an active and supportive PTA, dedicated teachers/staff, and engaged administration all focused on the health, well-being, and equal education for ALL students. York incorporates STEM daily into the classroom curriculum, in addition to providing dedicated time for students in the STEM lab. In 2015, York unveiled a new interactive discovery playground, courtesy of the Jon Rex Endowment, that incorporates an outdoor learning center and STEM features.

York-tastic NEWS! We are excited to share that our building will be getting a massive facelift! We will be in our current building for the 2019-2020 school year. During the summer of 2020, we will move to Barton Pond Elementary on Strickland Road for the entire 2020-2021 school year while our building is under construction. We will move back into our completely renovated building in the fall of 2021. Building plans are located in our school media center if you want to see what our new building will look like. More news to come as we get closer to our move.
