Your child’s journey to access a high-quality, tuition-free public school with a focus on college readiness starts TODAY!

YES Prep Airline Elementary opened August 2022 to provide families in the Northline area a high-quality education for their younger children. The school is located close to YES Prep Northline Secondary (currently serving grades 6th - 11th grade). YES Prep Airline Elementary is open to students entering grades prekindergarten through third for the 2024-2025 school year and will add additional grades in the following years.

We believe in creating pathways to opportunity, to empowered communities, to success that isn’t solely defined by test scores but by a student’s ability to recognize their own value. YES Prep is redefining what is possible in public education, providing support to send over 18,000 college-bound students into the world equipped with the tools to build their own pathways to opportunity. We believe that every day is an opportunity to say, “Yes, I can!”
