Connecting the Classroom & Community

Service Learning

Service learning combines classroom learning goals and community service in a way that enhances or benefits both the student and the community. Every activity reinforces the curriculum and back in the classroom, students have the chance to reflect on what they’ve learned.


Types of Service Learning

  • Direct
  • Indirect
  • Research-based
  • Advocacy

Service Learning @ UYS

Our students are involved in a variety of service learning opportunities throughout the year. We believe this is important as it provides them with an opportunity to help their community directly and using a hands-on approach to what they are learning in class.

We are so very proud of our Upper York School community and the contributions they make to the people around them. Check out our website and Instagram page to see what else students are up to!
