Since 1998, YES Prep Public Schools has redefined what is possible in public education. With over 18,000 students across 23 schools and programs, we are a system of high-performing public charter schools proving that students from any community can achieve at the highest academic levels. Our exceptional results demonstrate that better outcomes are not only possible, but also probable, when school systems build a culture of high expectations and create effective support systems to ensure that student achievement is at the forefront of every decision made.
During the 2023-2024 school year, we will be commemorating our 25 years of impact by sharing our history, our milestones and stories.
We would also LOVE to hear from you! Do you have a story to share of how YES Prep made an impact on your life? Let us know so we can share it.
