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.
Our charter with the state allows YES Prep to serve students in grades 6 – 12 . Limited facilities funding means that we have to maximize the use of our school buildings. By operating middle and high schools together, we are able to be more efficient with staff and facilities. In 2017, the Texas Legislature passed HB 21, which will provide charter schools in Texas with some facilities funding for the first time. Although this funding is helpful, we will have to continue prioritizing maintenance on some school buildings while deferring maintenance on others. Additionally, we will continue to advocate for equitable school facilities funding and to fundraise to help bridge the current gap in our funding.
Teachers at YES Prep value parent involvement and communicate with parents frequently by phone, email, or through conferences. Campuses also communicate with families regularly through weekly Parent Notes and progress reports.
Each YES Prep campus has specific uniform shirts that are available for purchase on the campuses. Khaki pants, shorts or skirts are typically worn with the campus uniform shirt.
All new students are required to attend a New Student Orientation on August 12-14, 2019 from 8:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. Orientation will help new students acclimate to YES Prep's culture and systems. Click here to see the YES Prep District Calendar.
