YES Prep provides different tools to help you stay connected to how your child is performing at school. Staying connected will allow you to see if your child is on track or needs additional support in their education. If you have any questions about the applications (apps) listed below, feel free to reach out to your campus' front office.
YES Prep Family Portal
The new Family Portal is a user-friendly way for families to view important information -attendance, behavior, grades, etc.- and understand their student’s progress. (You can also access the Home Access Center & Hero through the Family Portal.)
This portal is made possible thanks to the support of the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation who provides the grant to develop and deploy this modern parent portal.
Please note that this Family Portal is currently not available for YES Prep Northbrook families, as these partnership campuses operate through the Spring Branch student information system.
Home Access Center
Through Home Access Center, parents and students have access to:
Grades: assignment grades, progress report grades, and report card grades
Attendance: tardies, absences, etc.
Schedule: classes your student is enrolled in
Through Hero, students and parents are able to keep the lines of communication between home and school open. Once you register online, you may download the HERO app to receive push notifications about your student’s HERO behavior throughout the day.
Students and guardians will each have a unique Hero login account. If you have any issues logging in to your HERO account, please reach out to your campus’s Dean of Students or Director of Student Support.
