YES prep Southeast campus is taking kids from challenging circumstances and graduating college bound students
—Submitted by a teacher


Posted August 14, 2009

My daughter has been attending YES for the past 4 years, I have to say it has been the best decision we have ever made. I am so thankful to all the YES staff. Keep up the good work!!

Academically speaking Yes is the best decision that we have ever made for our kids, education is excellent, and expectations are very high, student s work hard. At Yes they don t only focus in academic programs but they also teach students about community; community service is a requirement to be promoted from one grade to another. They also have awesome field trips to Universities all around the USA, my girls attend the North Central location, the principal and his staff are the best ..Long live the blue and orange!

I have a son at YES. Our decision to send him there was the best decision that I have made. My son spent his entire elementary edcuation in private school. However, the quality of education he is receiving at YES could not compare. The teachers are AWESOME! The school instills into the child in sixth grade that a college education is an expectation. The teachers are available via cell phone after school hours. Read the bio of the teachers. EXCEPTIONAL!

Academics-with a college degree i'm amazed at the quality and quantity of work demanded from yes. I'm extremely satisfied to know that my son is being challenged to prepare him for his college education. 'Whatever it takes', is there motto and it's something that they strictly believe in. Faculty and staff-they are a well rounded group of individuals whom take their job extremely serious. As a parent you want to be able to communicate with the teachers and get feedback, that is something i have experienced at 'yes' with both the faculty and the staff! safety & discipline-in the three years that my son has attended yes, the promotion of safety and discipline has never diminished. Making time for extracurricular activities is something they enforce and provide a variety of. If you want your son to be academically challenged and a well rounded individual, yes is the place to attend.

The sincere dedication from the teachers and staff are reflected in my child s eagerness to excel. She used to be insecure about her academic capabilities, yet we were able to see a dramatic change in her first year at YES. The teachers continuously praise the students individual accomplishments expecting nothing but the best from each individual child. The academic standards are raised at YES, yet unlike most public school, YES helps each individual child reach and want to go beyond that standard.

Every child deserves to have an education like they one offered at this school.

This is an excellent school. The opportunity for students who really want to success in a four year college is increased and assured here. I have my two kids in this school and I am amazed of the commitment of the teachers and principal.

This school has very high standards in preparing each student to excel in college. A college acceptance letter is a requirement to graduate. Take a peek at the website www.yesprep.org. Test scores are always exemplary.

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.
