Young Women's Preparatory Academy is more than a school. It is a family and an inspiring community. I really came out of my shell at this facility with nurturing teachers who had extensive knowledge of materials and amazing friends. The small classes allow the teachers to form excellent relations with the students and the students really feel at home. When a teacher knows every student and can distinguishes everyone's strengths and weaknesses, the learning environment is amplified to one of care and comfort as well as rigorous and challenging. Being single gender also has significant benefits as it has truly allowed me to become proud with having a voice. The environment makes one fearless of being the best. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience at Young Women's Preparatory Academy and it is a once in a lifetime opportunity to attend a public single gender school.

I graduated from Young Women's Preparatory Academy in 2016 and I was there since the sixth grade. YWPA is a magnet school that focuses on leadership. My graduating class was 38 girls, all emerging leaders who pushed each other upwards. I am so proud to have graduated from a school that made my education a priority. I had so many amazing teachers, all who care about creating a relationship with their students and serving as role models. I would recommend my school to any girl wanting to enter a comfortable and academically driven environment.
My experience at Young Women's Preparatory Academy has been great. I can definitely say I am prepared for life after high school with the amazing job my teachers have done in shaping who I am today. On the other hand, i wish to see more change with the amount of activities the school does for the students outside the classroom as well as inside, creating a more suitable environment in which every one is welcome.
