Founded in 2002, the Young Women's Preparatory Network is a nonprofit agency that partners with public school districts across the state of Texas to operate the largest network of all-girls, public, college preparatory schools in the nation. Our schools are located in struggling urban neighborhoods and have proven to be very successful. The schools have won multiple academic achievement awards, including being recognized amongst the top public schools in Texas and the nation. YWPN formed the first public/private partnership with the Dallas Independent School District in August 2004, opening the Irma Lerma Rangel Young Women's Leadership School, the first all-girls' public school in Texas. Since then, YWPN has opened schools in Austin, Fort Worth, Grand Prairie, Houston, Lubbock, San Antonio and Ysleta (El Paso) serving more than 4,600 young women annually. Because of the success of the first school in Dallas, this school model is being replicated throughout the state, as a catalyst for positive educational change.
