Back to School

Welcome to the YES Prep Southside Elementary family! I am humbled that you have chosen YES Prep Southside Elementary as your child’s school, and I am excited to lead your student through elementary school as we prepare them for middle school, high school, and beyond.

Your family chose YES Prep Public Schools for your student; we understand that decision comes with a lot of responsibility for our team. The educators at YES Prep Southside Elementary are here to support your student and family throughout the elementary school journey. Students, families, educators, and staff at YES Prep Southside Elementary must all work together to ensure that our students have the supports and resources needed to be successful during their elementary school years, but also to prepare them to be successful and live a choice-filled life.

Our ultimate goal is to serve the Southside community by providing a high-quality education in a safe and collaborative learning environment, so that all children achieve their full potential and can live choice-filled lives. We are so excited to have you on this journey.

Shine bright Sparks!
