YES Prep Thrive was founded in 2018 and is the first Charter Disciplinary Alternative Education Program in Texas.
The Thrive program, serving grades 6-12, is a short-term flexible academic program that flips that narrative of a traditional alternative school on its head. At YES Prep Public Schools, we believe that even when students make mistakes, they still deserve an equitable and high quality education that is both rigorous and responsive to a student’s holistic needs. By giving students additional learning opportunities, we are ensuring that we are fulfilling YES Prep's mission of supporting ALL students.
We believe in serving ALL students. We build a safe learning environment through trusting relationships, humility, grace and space to grow. We strive to individually push students academically and socially so that they continue their journey to confidently become their highest selves and are prepared to navigate and succeed at YES Prep and in the competitive world beyond.
Every YES Prep student, regardless of social gap or mistake, will continue to have access to a school that delivers an exceptional, college-ready education while receiving the holistic support they deserve.
We believe that Black Lives Matter. We support our immigrant families and students. We fight for the rights of our LGBTQ+ community members. We value and empower neurodivergent individuals. We believe that we must disrupt systems which disproportionately have a negative impact on marginalized communities; we are collectively responsible for addressing inequities in the world. All stakeholders are responsible for building capacity in students and in each other, families, students, and staff alike.
