Yes Prep Gulfton is apart of the yes prep charter school district. I have been apart of the this community ever since I began my studies there in 6th grade. I remember going into middle school really nervous but as the first week went by, I realized I had nothing to be nervous about. The staff as well as my peers made me feel very welcome. I had senior friends as a 6th grader, who gave me advice and would mentor me with school work if I was ever struggling. Something that I really appreciate is teachers go out of their way to help you, they will do anything to make sure that you are understanding the material. Not only are they there to help you educationally, but also emotionally. I have made amazing bonds and connections with the staff, including teachers that don't even teach me. Everyday I get a countless amount of smiles and greetings that make yes prep gulfton, feel like my second home. I'm so glad to be part of this community!
