Navy blazers, maroon ties, and sapphire button down shirts. Not what many have come to expect when describing a typical high school student. However, Young Men’s Preparatory Academy is not your typical school. Young Men’s is an all-male institution, this unique school is the only one of its kind in all of Miami-Dade County. Just as our mascot the mighty Lion we won’t back from any challenge. Our school has made tremendous progress throughout the years. Our school has maintained a 100 percent graduation rate for the past 2 years. Lastly, Young Men’s Preparatory encourages Scholarship, Leadership, Integrity, and Character. During my years here I've been inspired to strive to be a scholars, develop into a future leader, and finally it has encouraged me to mature and show character daily. Clearly, Young Men’s Preparatory Academy is not just a school – it’s the future.

Although some of the negative reviews provided would have been considered true in prior years, this school has really earned its title of: academy. Just as when a student transfers schools, Young Men's Prep had its ups and downs, making mistakes, and to make mistakes is human. Young Men's Prep has learned from its mistakes, hence, making it a more suitable learning environment, not only for the students but for the parents as well. With the addition of new staff and faculty members, such as the lead teacher and activities director, Ms. Orta, this school has become one of the most dedicated, prestigious sixth through twelfth institutions I have ever had the pleasure of attending. When I am grown, I will look back at my time attending Young Men's Prep, fondly remembering how I was shaped into the leader I am today.
Some teachers go beyond expectations and help the students reach their full learning potential. While other teachers are too meek or narrow-minded to be of any use to the curriculum.
