For the third year in a row, YES Prep was listed among America's Most Challenging High Schools by The Washington Post. This year, six YES Prep campuses were ranked according to The Washington Post's Challenge Index, a formula which divides the number of Advanced Placement, International Baccalaureate and Advanced International Certificate of Education tests given at a school in the previous calendar year by the number of students who graduate. In other words, the index highlights YES Prep's rigorous, college-preparatory curriculum.
The Washington Post's Jay Mathews just released his America's Most Challenging High Schools list for 2015. All four of YES Prep's qualifying schools - Southeast, North Central, Southwest, and East End - not only made the list, but rank among the nation's top 2%! Find all the rankings here.
