I really love this school because it helped me achieve my academic success. What this means is that this YES Prep is a once in a life time opportunity. It prepares you for college and has multiple organizations that will probably be useful in the future. For example, it will get you into a very academic university. Choosing to come to this school would be your choice. It will only define who you really are. Choose wisely.

The teachers are great but office staff is bad. Every time I call no one answers and I have to leave a message and no one ever calls me back. They need to hire a person who is going to answer the phones.

The Yes Prep School District has the top rated best school in Houston and is among the nation's top 100. As of now our school accepts students up to the 10th grade, but give us a couple more years and the East End Campus will be right up there on top. I have had other children that graduated from both private and public schools that are considered (Great) schools, but none of them gave them the opportunity or encouragement that East End is presently giving my two daughters in the 9th and 6th grade. Their older brothers and sister are jealous. This is all possible because of the dedication and support from both staff and teachers.

My daughter first year has been a tremendous asset to her by developing academically and socially. This school requires 150% of each student and it shows. The culture shock has been a great influence. I do wish the organization had more parent involvement - hopefully this will change - since this location is quite new. I would recommend this school to any caring parent, that requires 150% from their children as a parent because this school will make an everlasting impact on families and students.

I work at YES Prep East End, and it is an amazing campus with an outstanding student, teacher, and administrator population. We work hard, have fun, and everyone is genuinely invested in the well-being and success of students - including other students! It is an INCREDIBLE experience to look out at my students and KNOW that every one of them will go to college, and I have deeply appreciated the sense of community amongst students, parents, teachers, staff, and administrators. I love this place!

I go to Yes Prep East End and it is wonderful.We might be a small campus and right now in a bad neighborhood but that is changing this year we have a new campus in the East End. I would recomen this school or any other Yes campus to any body. I have been in Yes for one year this will be my second one and so far the experience here is wonderful. We learn and have fun at the same time. So if you think going to a good school is a lot of money it isn't Yes is a public school.

My daughter is a student at this campus and it is a great environment for academic and social growth. The teachers are very interested and concerned with each student's development. The students really do treat eachother like family, helping one another through the good and bad times.

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.
