Message from Principal Stephanie Gounder
At YES Prep Brays Oaks, we take pride in the accomplishments of our students and staff. We’ve worked hard over the last 11 years to build a culture where all students are held to high and consistent expectations, have the opportunity to leverage their voice, and achieve at the highest levels possible. Due to hard work and a committed teaching staff, we’ve seen strong student achievement growth on STAAR tests, AP exams, and reading fluency over the years. Our students participate in diverse course offerings (Gardening, Digital Media, AP Psychology, and Dance to name a few), have access to 11 AP courses, and lead strong student organizations. Our alumni have matriculated to fine institutions including Vanderbilt University, Johns Hopkins University, Boston University, and Wellesley College. We strive to be a school that students, parents, and community members are proud of, and we invite you to see us in action.
