- Our PhilosophyYorkshire Academy is a welcoming, joyful school built and supported by students, teachers, and parents working together in a spirit of mutual trust and respect. We believe that responsibility, collaboration, and intellectual curiosity develop when students are known by their teachers and classmates and feel appreciated for what they do best.We respect each student`s individuality. We invest time and energy in helping students understand that they are worthy, have talent, and can succeed. We build confidence, encouraging students to understand that risks are worth taking and failure is a learning opportunity. We encourage students to stretch beyond their current achievements and points of view, thereby helping them build self-esteem and pride of accomplishment.

We have 4 children who attended YA for the past 3 years. This school has great class sizes and the teachers were amazing with all 4 of our children whilst we were there. They went out of their way to help one of our children in particular. We cannot fault the school and would not hesitate to recommend it to anybody.

Our two children have attended Yorkshire Academy for the last four years. We were looking for an education that would enable our children to transition in to the British education system seamlessly at some stage in the future. The depth and variety of Yorkshire Academy's curriculum means our kids are now well placed to return to the British, or any international system at any stage. The student:teacher ratio has allowed for a great deal of focused attention when required and our boys have clearly benefited from that experience. The teachers through the years have always worked closely with both the children and parents to ensure the children are sufficiently challenged and gratified in their achievements. Both children now display a degree of confidence at such a young age that only the US education system seems to be able to offer. A major benefit of such a small school is that all the children, no matter the age, seemed to know each other, making for a very welcoming and comfortable environment. With both parents working, it was nice to know that additional support was easily available both before and after core hours. Our kids will be sad to leave Yorkshire Academy now we're leaving Houston, but are clearly very well placed for their experience, seeing each move as an adventure.

We were fortunate enough to be a part of the Yorkshire Academy family for 3.5 years while we lived in Houston. We had moved there from Canada, where I had been teaching for 10 years, and so when looking for a school I was looking both as a parent and an educator. I could not have asked for a better beginning to my kids academic career than Yorkshire. The entire faculty truly love their jobs, the school, each other, and most importantly the students. I have worked in many schools and have never seen a more positive school environment than YA. The curriculum is innovative and top notch, the building and amenities are constantly being improved upon, the after school opportunities are varied and of very high quality. Respect, tolerance and love of each other is constantly enforced in the student body and I truly couldn't have asked for a nicer group of kids for my kids to call their friends. When we decided to return to Canada, leaving Yorkshire Academy was by far the hardest thing for us to leave. Again, looking at the school both as a parent and as an educator, I can't say enough good things about Yorkshire and I am so grateful we were fortunate to have the years there we did.

As and educator, I had my bar set pretty high, when searching for a Preschool for my daughter. Yorkshire was highly recommended to me by a friend. I can honestly say, my bar has been met, and SURPASSED! We LOVE Yorkshire Academy! My daughter is in the Preschool class, and everything has been wonderful. The quality of the staff, the depth and variety of activities offered, and the knowledge my daughter has gained at Yorkshire, can only be described as exceptional. We truly feel that we've become part of the Yorkshire family. My daughter is already registered for the Pre-K class in the fall; and my 2 year old son will start the Cottage Program as well!! Thank you Yorkshire!!

We were fortunate enough to be part of the Yorkshire Acaddmy family for 8 years. We moved to Texas from the UK and both our children attended the school from 18months old. We were so sad to leave, the school is so nurturing and everyone knows everyone. It is so friendly and the kids learnt and did so much. It is very well rounded, academically and also arts and music, which is why we loved the school so much. I can't say enough good things, we were so sad to leave and would totally recommend the school to anyone!

Yorkshire is a great school with excellent social and emotional student growth; and a school-wide climate of high expectations. It has been a wonderful experience for our family and we could not be more pleased with Yorkshire.

Our family is so happy we found this school and we were lucky to get in. Our daughter absolutely loves it. She has learned so much and met many friends. The staff is amazing, all the teachers are very sweet and caring. Lots of afternoon classes for all ages that are very convenient. As a working couple we really appreciate that the school provides care after regular hours.
