Join Our Team Today - Teach at YES Prep

As Houston's highest performing public-school system, with 97% of YES Prep students attending A or B rated schools, YES Prep is living proof that different outcomes are possible when students from low-income communities are given access to high-quality educational opportunities. When you work at YES Prep, you have an opportunity to make a difference every day. 

The onset of COVID-19 has sent school districts, communities, employers and families reeling. It’s not easy navigating one of the most complex issues facing our nation, but it can be done. Though the challenges accompanying a pandemic are new, our approach to solving our communities’ most pressing needs have not changed. We are built for this. 

YES Prep continues to persist, to make equitable choices, and to keep family and students first. All balanced with a lot of love and levity.
