YES Prep will waive the uniform policy for students for the 2020 Fall Semester. YES Prep understands the COVID-19 pandemic has created or increased the economic challenges our families face. Students will follow the “free dress” policy as outlined in our Campus Supplement (coming soon).
New Students (Lottery): YES Prep Public Schools is a tuition-free public charter school system in Houston, TX. YES Prep Public Schools does not have any admission exams or interviews to admit students. We are required by law to admit students using a lottery process to select applicants at random when there are more applicants than available seats.
To learn more about the lottery process and student application, click here.
Student Transfers: YES Prep allows current YES Prep students to transfer to a different YES Prep campus as long as approval is granted and space is available at the campus of preference. There are three types of Student Transfers: Sibling Transfers, Address Change Transfers, and Family Support Transfers.
The Texas Department of State Health Services provides minimum vaccination requirements for K-12 students. To learn more, click here.
