West York Area School District is a public school entity located in south-central Pennsylvania serving approximately 3,000 students in kindergarten through 12th grade who live in the Borough of West York and the Township of West Manchester.

   In West York, our purpose is twofold: 1) create opportunities for our students to thrive, and

2) to develop world-class citizens.  Ultimately, our aim is to equip West York graduates for more and better opportunities to thrive in an increasingly complex and competitive society while also empowering graduates to lead with integrity, empathy, and respect for others.

   Please feel free to contact us to discover how our highly qualified teachers and staff fulfill our mission of Every Student Every Day!

The WY Model UN, facilitated by Ms. Melissa Carl, attended the YMCA Hershey Region Model UN Conference from Jan. 3rd-5th. Over 2,000 students were in attendance, with some school delegations numbering over 200. The team as a whole won an Outstanding Delegation Award, and three students won individual awards on their committees: Senior Katherine Hutton won the Outstanding Paper Award representing Japan on the Historical Security Council, Senior Awaiz Zahra won the Premier Delegate Award representing Pakistan on the Asia-Pacific Summit, and Junior Sean Fleming won the Premier Delegate Award representing France on Security Council. WY attends this conference annually and looks forward to going again next year!
