Back to School


 Message from the Principal

We are so very excited to welcome all students back to the Maverick Nation. We hope everyone had a relaxing summer and is ready to return back to school. Our phenomenal teachers have been back at school for a few weeks preparing for our students. Last year  YES Prep Southwest had a very strong year. We earned an A+ from TEA as one of the top rated high schools in Houston. We were also ranked 51 in Texas by the U.S. News and World Report. Our students have worked very hard this past year and we expect to build on our success this year. Staff and students would not be successful without the support of families! Thank you, and we look forward to getting our students college ready this year. - Eric Espinoza, Principal
