The students at Yorktown High School reflect Arlington's rich diversity. Yorktown's primary goal is to provide all students a first-rate academic education, while fostering the development of the social and emotional skills for success in life. The faculty and community commitments to this primary goal make Yorktown a challenging and unique secondary school. Over ninety percent of Yorktown graduates pursue post-secondary education; others go on to the military or join the work force after graduation. A recent Washington Post ranking of high schools placed Yorktown in the top ten most academically challenging high schools in the Washington metropolitan area. Newsweek included Yorktown in its listing of the top 25 high schools in the nation. In 2002, the U.S. Department of Education designated Yorktown a Blue Ribbon "National School of Excellence." With an emphasis on high expectations for every student, Yorktown addresses the needs of its students through a broad curriculum, a large number of special programs, and the support of a wide range of professionals and community members. Several computer labs and mini-labs throughout the building, a Yorktown television studio, and teacher technology productivity centers allow students and faculty opportunities to utilize technology for learning and instruction. Students also enrich their education with electives in foreign languages and fine arts. The high level of student involvement in these programs, and the recognition students regularly receive for their accomplishments in these areas, is a tribute to the student talent and dedication that are hallmarks of Yorktown.
