YES Prep Elementary Schools 

For more than 22 years, YES Prep has served students in grades 6-12 and increased the number of students from underserved communities who graduate from college prepared to lead.  We now serve more than 14,000 students at 19 campuses and have a wait list reaching a record 7,000 students.

In August 2020, YES Prep will begin opening elementary schools to provide the same quality education to families with younger children in grades Pre-K through 5.  By 2024, YES Prep will open 10 elementary schools creating access to 10,000 Houston children. As we expand to offer elementary school options, we are recruiting more top, certified elementary school teachers, leaders, and extraordinary staff who will work with families to determine each child’s goals and areas of support needed.

Our Programming

YES Prep elementary schools strive to ensure that in every classroom, every day, all students engage in aligned, rigorous and active learning increasing their college readiness. Our elementary academic programming has been thoughtfully designed to ensure students  achieve  and  become passionate learners through  high volume reading,  solving real world  and complex math problems,  engaging  in  scientific  inquiry,  practicing persistence,  building  positive  relationships,  and  understanding  the  world around us in a collaborative community.  Each day is designed to be filled with joy and opportunities for students to find their own voice to express their ideas, advocate for their needs, and discover  new  talents  to  be  on  track for sixth grade and ultimately college and beyond. We firmly believe that doing is at the core of learning.
