2018-19 was a year of highs and lows for Yellowstone.
At Yellowstone Academy, we continued to see impressive academic gains from Pre-K through 4th grade, and greater access to state-of-the-art assessment data showed us where we can continue to improve our program. Our alumni continued to do well—notably, 100% of our 8th grade class of 2015 succesfully graduated high school this Spring, and many of them have already enrolled in a post-secondary program!
For the first time in Yellowstone history, we launched a new public charter school for students in grades 5-8. The energy and excitement around this new endeavor was incredible to witness! We worked hard to establish a positive student culture, provide effective instruction, and care for our student’s social and emotional wellbeing. Despite truly heroic efforts on the part of our faculty and staff, and measured academic growth among our students, Yellowstone College Prep received an “Improvement Required” rating from the State of Texas. We anticipated this rating for our first year, and we are poised for greater success in 2019-20.
As President Kennedy reminded us in his famous moonshot speech, “We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard, because that goal will serve to organize and measure the best of our energies and skills, because that challenge is one that we are willing to accept, one we are unwilling to postpone, and one which we intend to win.”
We remain unbowed in our determination to provide an high-quality education paired with the wrap-around support our students need to achieve success. The future of our students depends on us, and we will not let them down. We will rise to the challenge, not because this work is easy, but because we are unwilling to postpone it.
