YWLA is a middle and high school combined and I have been lucky to attend all 7 years. They have provided me with many opportunities such as college trips, luncheons, and mentors with gm financial. We have 100% college acceptance. Also each year we have a signing day where the seniors reveal to the school where they will be attending in the fall and the class of 2019 was able to get sponsored by the Dallas Mavericks, sponsoring the class of 2020 too! As well as the Young Women's Preparatory Network is our foundation which helps all of this become possible. I am so glad I stuck around for High school, or else I wouldn't have gotten a great experience and have bonded with my fellow sisters. Although if I could change one thing it'd be our building, the school is growing which is great but it feels as if our building is slowly starting to outgrow as well, so having a bigger campus for the other students is something I hope goes into consideration.

If you're looking for a school who will treat you like their own sister, then this school is just the right school for you! The teachers here genuinely cares for us, our well-being, and our academic success. The academics are very good. We are taught at a higher academic standard and we often do very well when we transition to higher grade levels. The administration is always looking for ways to enhance the school and they're always very open to ideas. Since this is a sisterhood school, the meaning of sisterhood is very clearly displayed here. Everyone here treats each other as if they were their real sisters and we're always there for each other even through good and bad times, the highs and lows, and through rain and sunshine.
The school is full of teachers who really want to help students. The classes were are small but are growing more in size every year. The teachers give many assignments, more so now during at home learning. It can be hard to keep up but it’s ultimately up to you to have time management skills. Because of the low amount of students there can be favoritism and competition, but overall the school is pretty welcoming. The schools location is not ideal for students. It’s located downtown so there is construction, train, and vehicle noises and not even a school zone for cars. The noises can be distracting especially if there is testing. The social scene in the school contains cliques but do to the size everyone knows each other. It is also hard to go up in rank because everyone is competitive and the low amount of students you are competing with. There isn’t meaning clubs at all it really doesn’t feel like a high school experience if that’s what you want don’t come here.
