As a former TFA corps member, current KIPP teacher, and soon to be School Leader, I give 110% support to YES! Prep and the ways in which they design their school around student needs. Awesome resources; keep up the phenomenal work!

Who designed the assignments and lesson plans? Were they worked on together by all staff in various content areas? What time/support were teachers given to write/design the various activities?
Is your school a year round program? Can teachers visit your site to observe?
This is a great website with awesome resources. Keep up the great work.
Thanks.

I'm in awe of the resources available to visitors and users of this site. I spent two wonderful years as a YES Prep Teacher. (Southeast!) yeah! The experience made me a better teacher for my students, and it was there that I learned the difference between a good teacher and a GREAT teacher. The individuals who are a part of the YES Prep System are the most talented in the field of education, and the KIDDOS are AMAZING! Keep up the great work.
