Teacher effectiveness: Strongly disagree


- a
Teachers at YWCPA are extremely underpaid, therefore they push that off onto the students and do bare minimum for them. The good teachers there are very few and far between.

Amount of homework: Agree


- a
No issues with homework given, except that grades were not input until the last minute so progress reports often did not reflect true grades.


Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
They absolutely do NOT develop honestly, integrity and fairness in their students due to the way they run their school. Their lack of class and integrity itself is the reason behind this.

YWCPA hisd is a good school. Although the school is new, teachers are extremely dedicated to ALL students academic success. Just look at the schools test scores and compare them to district and state averages. The results speaks for itself.

Develops character: Strongly disagree


- a
The school claims to develop honesty, integrity and fairness, but It really depends on the student and their relationship with administration.

There are many instances of favoritism by the principal. The classes are rigid, as a preparatory academy should be, but many of the students are over worked.

This is the first public female only school in this district. This school is a STEM program and has been in existence for four years. The school first started with 6th and 9th graders totaling about 200 students. The school has added students for each year for all grades and this year completed the full enrollment of 6th - 12th graders. There has been some bumps in the road of course. However, I feel that this school is the best choice for my daughter and would be for yours. My daughter has thrived in this learning environment. She has taken on challenges and done things here that has given her so much confidences. She has had many visits to colleges, NASA, museum and participated in Science and Engineering competitions each year. The school is still going through some growing pains due to the nature of this new concept for the district. However, what they are doing they are doing quite well. The students are testing in top percentage for the district. I invite you to come and check it out.

This is my daughter's first year at YWCPA. I love it, even if she don't. She is challenged, has become organized & knows that just good enough, is not good enough. The principal, teachers & staff are extraordinary!

My daughter attends YWCPA and enjoys the STEM and AP courses she is offered. The curriculum offered are at high standards and the young ladies are challenged daily. We have the best administration and support any parent could wish for. I love the STEM curriculum and opportunities to visit college and learn to their full potential. Great school!!!

THis is my daughter's second year at this school and I feel it is a "work of art in progress". What I mean by this is that this is a fairly new school but it has made great stides in this small amount of time. The principal, Ms. Thomas, is a "phenomenal" person and principal. She is working hard to make these girls and this school something Houston, Texas and the country might some day really take a look! The majority of the staff appear to really want to make a difference as well. Don't get me wrong, not all of them, but this happens at every school. I would like to see a little more of the "high school" experience" (i.e. dances, proms, homecoming activities) but I feel its coming. Just watch God work thru this woman! It's a really good school, academically and I feel that it is growing into a great school! Parents, we have to help her and not expect her to do it all.
