Opportunities to Achieve More! 

YES Prep Public Schools represent opportunities for your child. Opportunities for a better future. Opportunities to feel empowered. We provide opportunities for students to access a high-quality, tuition-free public education with a focus on college readiness.  

At YES Prep, we know sixth grade is a significant year of transition and growth for students. Beginning in sixth grade, each YES Prep student is not only prepared for the academic demands of college entrance exams and the admissions process, but they’re also supported through their continued journey of self-discovery and agency.

Why Parents Choose Us

I chose YES Prep Northwest for my daughter because it was a new school that offered smaller class sizes. It also provided the opportunity to build personal relationships between staff, parents and students.
