Admissions & Enrollment
Thank you for your interest in YES Prep!
YES Prep Public Schools is a public charter school system in Houston, TX that helps graduates earn college degrees at four times the rate of their peers. YES Prep is open and tuition-free to all children with no special requirements for admittance, serving grades pre-K - 3rd and 6th - 12th.
Although YES Prep does not have any admission exams or interviews to admit students, we use a random, automated lottery for schools when there are more students interested in attending than available classroom space.
YES Prep Northbrook Middle School and YES Prep Northbrook High School, our schools in partnership with Spring Branch Independent School District, run a separate lottery. To apply online for YES Prep Northbrook campuses, click the button below.
