Val Sal Dinner

Join us in honoring the valedictorians and salutatorians from our thirteen fully grown campuses

Every May, YES Prep Public Schools honors the top two students from each of our thirteen (13) high school graduating classes during the annual Val + Sal Banquet. 

The Valedictorian and Salutatorian are recognized for finishing first or second in their graduating class’s academic rankings. During the banquet, the twenty six (26) valedictorians and salutatorians are presented with a trophy in recognition of their outstanding academic achievements.
