What is a typical Yorktown High School student like? Describe the type of person who should attend Yorktown High School.


Anonymous, Student, Yorktown High School, Class of 2017

Yorktown High school has three social groups. The jocks, the nerds, and the minorities who don't care for school. The jocks are people who participate in sports all throughout the year and have average A and B grades. They all have the varsity letters and some have newspaper articles written about them. Most of them receive scholarships and a spot on a college sports team. Then you have the nerds. The nerds are people who everyone respects. They get A's in there classes without even trying, it's like they were born smart. They all have older siblings and parents who attended Ivy league schools or great public universities like University of Virginia. Lastly you have the minorities who don't care. Yorktown is a school that contains 90% of the white population. If the minorities that go to Yorktown don't fit in with the jocks or nerds, they become there own little group. They don't care about classes and are usually held back a year or two. The guys usually smoke marijuana and do drugs while the girls often get pregnant. I don't know if they do this because they don't fit in, but it seems like that's the reason. The type of person who should attend Yorktown is someone who receives A's and B's. Yorktown is a great school to get an education and wants to keep the title by having students who try.
