About YES Prep Elementary

Since 1997, YES Prep has served students in grades 6-12 and increased the number of students from underserved communities who graduate from college prepared to lead. Recognized by U.S. News & World Report, The Washington Post and others as having some of the best schools in the nation, we are excited that beginning this August, we opened our first two elementary schools to provide the same quality education to families with younger children. 

As YES Prep Public Schools continues it's expansion we are thrilled to announce our plan to open two more YES Prep elementary schools  - in the North Forest and Southside communities. 

YES Prep North Forest Elementary and YES Prep Southside Elementary —will serve students in pre-kindergarten through second grade, with additional grade levels being added the following years, including up to fifth grade.
