Overcoming the Odds: Getting Every Student to College YES Prep Shares Its Success Story

This report illustrates the successful college preparatory practices of YES Prep Public Schools, a network of 11 public charter schools in Houston that serves nearly 7,000 poor and minority students. During the 2012 Broad Prize for Public Charter Schools review process, a panel of national education experts chose YES Prep as the best among the nation’s 20 largest urban charter management organizations in closing achievement gaps, graduating its students and preparing them for college. Since YES Prep’s inception in 1998, 100 percent of its seniors have graduated from high school and been accepted to four-year colleges and universities. The policies and practices highlighted in this report were collected during a week-long site visit to YES Prep conducted by RMC Research Corporation in November 2012 and a review of YES Prep’s quantitative student achievement data over the past four years.
