School Day & Year

As a public school system, YES Prep is held to the same academic standards as independent school districts (ISDs). The TEA requires 75,600 minutes of instruction per school year with one school day defined as 420 minutes. All districts - charter and ISD - can develop the calendar that best meets the needs of their students and families so long as the minimum number of instructional minutes is satisfied annually. School hours are as follows:

Elementary 7:30 AM - 3:15 PM
Secondary 8:30 AM - 4:00 PM

Transportation 

YES Prep provides free bus transportation for all students who live within their school’s zone but more than two miles from the school. Students who do not reside within the priority zone may enroll and provide their own transportation.

School Uniforms 

At YES Prep, we believe the purpose of the dress code is to create a sense of identity while also creating boundaries for school to be a physically and emotionally safe space. Through a more flexible dress policy, we can create a sense of community through Spirit shirts and outerwear while still allowing for kid autonomy and choice in their clothing to ensure their comfort. This also ensures that adult energy is focused on learning, celebration, and growth within the school community. 

In addition, YES Prep understands the COVID-19 pandemic has created or increased the economic challenges our families face. Students will follow the “free dress” policy as outlined in the Individual Campus Supplement for their school. You may view the "free dress" day expectations stated in our Uniform Policy on the YES Prep Campus website.
