Yorktown High School (grades nine through twelve) is part of Arlington Public Schools (APS), a system of approximately 28,000 students located directly across the Potomac River from Washington, D.C. Students in the system come from 146 nations and speak over 107 languages. The school system is financially strong, with wonderful teachers and staff, and a high level of community support, along with multiple programs to meet individual student needs.

Yorktown High School serves a population of approximately 2,100 students and a professional staff of 250 employees. Reflecting the diverse population of Arlington, many ethnic groups and cultures are represented at Yorktown. Yorktown serves students in grades nine through twelve. As a comprehensive high school with a focus on providing a variety of elective options beyond the regular curriculum, Yorktown has many unique features, including the following:

? Providing a First Rate Education to All:

Yorktown?s primary goal is to provide all students a first-rate academic education, while fostering the development of the whole child. Yorktown addresses the needs of each student in the following ways:
o The work of content based Collaborative Learning Teams (CLT?s), which identify essential knowledge and skills, assess students? proficiency, and intervene or enrich based on student performance data.
o a focus on Restorative Practices as a way to hold students and staff accountable to one another and our community.
o Focused professional learning on best practices related to co-teaching.
o A collective commitment to practicing culturally responsive teaching strategies.

? Educating the Whole Child/SEL (Social Emotional Learning)

Over 20 years ago, the faculty at Yorktown voted to work towards two fundamental goals in the education we provide our students: a first-rate academic education for every student; along with that, the deliberate emphasis on skills and attitudes which promote social-emotional intelligence. Some of the skills and attitudes we collectively try to foster: self-management; communication; responsible decision making; self-awareness; respect for self, others and the community. We work towards developing a safe, caring and orderly environment conducive to student learning. The relationship our faculty have with students can best be characterized as ?caring and respectful?, with a commitment to help all students develop their academic potential through high??expectations.

? Yorktown Scholars Program

The Yorktown Scholars Program is an opportunity designed for students who are academically capable, curious, and motivated. The program provides college level course work that is aligned to the National Advanced Placement Program. It provides students the opportunity to develop unique personal interest and talents with the support of an AP Scholars advisor.

? Ninth grade transition support

We support the transition of our 9th graders from middle school to high school by assigning them upperclassmen mentors and enrolling them in team-taught World History and English courses. Counselors and assistant principals loop with students throughout their tenure at Yorktown.

? Extensive Activities Program

Yorktown offers extra-curricular activities with 60 clubs and 25 interscholastic teams.

? Center for Leadership and Service/Senior Experience

In 2004, Yorktown established a ?Center for Leadership and Public Service? to coordinate its varied student programs in leadership, service and social-emotional learning. A cornerstone of Yorktown?s whole-child focus is Senior Experience, which originated at Yorktown to provide seniors the opportunity to explore their possible career paths through real life, hands-on learning.


The principal is responsible for directing the instructional program and the general operation of a senior high school of approximately 2,100 students. The principal is responsible for planning, organizing, and coordinating the educational program and supervising a staff of approximately 250 employees, including teachers, assistant principals, director of student activities, director of counseling services, guidance counselors, librarians, office personnel, custodians and para-professionals.
