Back to School
Welcome, Legends! YES Prep North Forest is proudly entering our 10th year in the North Forest community. We recently were informed that we received a TEA Rating of a B School, making us the first school in the community to earned that rating! This year, we are excited to continue fostering student growth and learning by living in our EPIC values and focusing on rigor and consistency. We are grateful for your continued commitment, trust and sacrifice to our mission.
This year, YES Prep North Forest will continue to be led by our Principal, James Mosley. We will also have two resident principals, Sara Kaveeshwar and Cintia Arenas, throughout the school year. Please reach out to us with any questions or support that you need.
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.

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.
*For specifics regarding transfers to Partnership Schools (YES Prep Hoffman, YES Prep Eisenhower, YES Prep Northbrook Middle, and YES Prep Northbrook High School) please refer to the guidelines under the Partnership Transfer Requests section in the Student Handbook.
Legal guardians must update their child’s immunizations. When enrolling your child in school, be sure to bring a signed record of your child’s current immunizations, signed to enroll provisionally if the required immunization process has begun. Your child can remain in school after 30 days in they have provided YES Prep with a record indicating you are:
1) in the process of receiving immunizations OR
2) bringing an affidavit indicating your child cannot receive vaccines or is choosing not to receive the recommended vaccines.
If you cannot provide YES Prep with the immunization records or one of the two above documents. YES Prep may require the student to stay home until the immunizations are complete.
Some organizations offer free immunizations to eligible children through their regular healthcare providers such as Texas Vaccinations for Children. Others, like a few branches of the Houston Public Library, offer free immunizations during specific hours on certain days of the month. For more information about required immunizations see the Immunization Fact Sheet or call Health Services at (713) 349-7423.
