About the SKY Partnership 

In 2012, YES Prep Public Schools formed part of an innovative, three-way partnership called SKY. The SKY Partnership is a collaboration with Spring Branch Independent School District (SBISD), KIPP Houston and YES Prep Public Schools, and forms part of SBISD’s School Choice offerings.   

YES Prep Northbrook Middle opened in 2012 and is housed inside of SBISD’s Northbrook Middle School campus. In 2015, the founding graduating classes of YES Prep Northbrook Middle and KIPP Courage at Landrum Middle were welcomed into the newly opened YES Prep Northbrook High inside of SBISD’s Northbrook High School campus.  

The purpose of the SKY Partnership is to provide additional excellent choices for students in the Spring Branch ISD area, and to accelerate and support the culture of post-secondary success within Spring Branch. All students in SKY have access to the broad range of electives and extra-curricular activities offered by Spring Branch ISD while taking their core academic classes at YES Prep or KIPP.
