I had a tour of the YC Prep School before classes started and got to meet the staff. This school is state of the art in technology which is complemented by a staff of dedicated professionals. It's no wonder that this school has received an A plus rating from the States of Florida Department of Education for the past decade

I got a chance to see the entire school and meet the teachers and I am very happy. The school offers my children a complete education, excellent environment for learning, caring teachers. I can say that I very impressed with the school. Thank you to the leaders and teachers for offering a quality education.

I went to the first EESAC meeting on Tuesday and what a mess. Mrs. Aragon is disrespectful and was constantly cutting people off. My son is unhappy since he is stuck in a class with 40+ kids while the teacher is teaching two subjects seriously!!!! I don't understand how the school board allows this to happen. I seriously think that the merge with the two schools has been a mess and the ones suffering are our children. I will be writing to the board members and I will be call MDCPS Charter School department at 305-995-1403.

My daughter is in the ninth grade and before coming to YCPS she had average grades and never wanted to school but somehow it all changed when she came to YCPS. I believe in the work that the teachers are giving the students and the laptops were a great idea to give the students. I am very happy with the work Mr. Feria has done with the school and I hope he continues to do an amazing job.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
