YES Prep Public Schools

The YES Prep community experienced an incredibly frightening day on Friday, October 1, 2021 at YES Prep Southwest Secondary. This shocking incident is one that no student, parent or educator should ever have to cope with on their own. We have counselors standing by to help anyone needing support over the weekend, next week, and through the school year, and our caring staff will be ready to welcome students upon their return to school on Monday, October 11, 2021.
