More school choices for Houston families as YES Prep Public Schools opens new campuses to meet demand New student lottery opens to all families beginning Oct. 29 Houston families seeking the highest quality public education for their children can sign up for the YES Prep Public Schools 2022-23 new student lottery beginning Oct. 29. YES Prep—the public charter school system that helps graduates earn college degrees at four times the rate of their peers—continues to expand and plans to open two more elementary schools next school year, giving Houston families more options for their children’s education. All of YES Prep’s eligible schools are ranked in the top 10 percent in the state and nation by U.S. News and World Report, and caring YES Prep educators help students make academic leaps year over year, increasing the number of students from underserved communities who graduate from college prepared to lead. Most students enter YES Prep performing below grade level and graduate among the first in their family to go to college or a military academy. In August 2022, YES Prep will open two more schools to children as young as pre-kindergarten—YES Prep Airline Elementary and YES Prep East End Elementary—to provide the same quality education to more families than ever before. YES Prep plans to open 10 elementary schools to serve 10,000 Houston children in pre-K through fifth grade for a total of 25,000 students in pre-K through 12th grades by 2025. “We are ready to welcome new students and their families to the YES Prep family and to our newest schools, dedicated to providing a fun and inspiring environment with accelerated learning, caring support systems, and whatever children may need to thrive,” YES Prep Public Schools CEO Mark DiBella said. Nationally recognized YES Prep schools are open to and tuition-free for all children with no special requirements for admittance. Families interested in enrolling students at one of YES Prep’s 25 campuses for the 2022-23 school year must sign up for a random, automated lottery, which the district uses for schools when there are more students interested in attending than available classroom space. The lottery is open 24/7 from Oct. 29, 2021 through Feb. 11, 2022. In addition to rigorous education and enrichment programs, all YES Prep campuses provide meals, devices, transportation, special education, English language learning, and access to healthcare, mental health, and other student support services. Families seeking additional information are invited to call 713-967-9000 or visit yesprep.org/sayYES.
