The Ysleta Young Women’s Leadership Academy is a member of the Young Women’s Preparatory Network (YWPN), a nonprofit organization that partners with public school districts to operate the largest network of all-girls’, public, college-preparatory schools in the nation. All YWPN schools feature a STEM-focused curriculum. The core values are college readiness, leadership and wellness life skills. More information about YWPN can be found at http://youngwomensprep.org/.
The Ysleta Young Women's Leadership Academy is the only FREE, all girl, college preparatory public school in West Texas. YWLA opened in the 2016-2017 school year with 125 6th grade girls and 98 7th grade girls adding a new 6th-grade cohort every year after. When at capacity, we will have grades 6-12 (middle school and high school).
Our young women are exceeding academic expectations and proving all students, regardless of their background or socio-economic status, can excel if given the right opportunity. Our school has a foundation of STEAM curriculum with a focus on our core values: Responsible Leadership, College and Career Readiness, and Wellness Life Skills.
"If you want to follow your dreams, come to YWLA."
We are YWLA.
