Join us for a day of family fun at YES Prep's first-ever Elementary Fall Festivals. We will have FREE games and activities for kids of all ages, free community resources for the family, and delicious hot carnival food and snacks available for purchase. Additionally, YES Prep staff and volunteers will be on hand assisting families with registering their children for the 2020-2021 student lottery, including our new kindergarten through second grades.

Elementary Fall Festival event dates

YES Prep Public Schools, which helps graduates earn college degrees at four times the rate of their peers, will open our first two elementary schools in August 2020. These schools—feeding into A-rated YES Prep Southeast and YES Prep North Central—will serve students in kindergarten through second grade, with Pre-K to fifth-grade levels added in the following years. YES Prep plans to open 10 elementary schools to serve 10,000 Houston children in pre-Kindergarten through fifth grade for a total of 25,000 students by 2025.

YES Prep Southeast Elementary will host its Fall Festival on November 2 at YES Prep Southeast (353 Crenshaw Rd.), and the YES Prep North Central Elementary festival will be on November 9 at YES Prep North Central (13701 Aldine-Westfield). Both events will be from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

Attendees who register for the student lottery before or during the event will have a chance to win a Luby's Thanksgiving Dinner! (Rules and requirements to come.)

Come have fun AND enroll your child in our elementary schools.

We look forward to seeing you there!

YES Prep Public Schools are open and tuition-free to all children with no special requirements for admittance. YES Prep uses a random, automated lottery for schools when there are more students interested in attending than available classroom space.

Families interested in enrolling students at one of YES Prep’s 21 campuses for the 2020-2021 school year, can register for the lottery 24 hours a day starting Nov. 1, 2019. The lottery registration closes Feb. 10, 2020, and families will learn the lottery’s results on Feb. 28, 2020.

YES Prep campuses provide transportation, special education, English language learning and all public school services. Families seeking additional information about YES Prep’s elementary schools can call 713.967.9000 or visit
