About Yellowstone

Founded in 2002, Yellowstone Schools are pioneering an exciting public/private model. Yellowstone Academy and Yellowstone College Prep are separate schools co-located on the same campus. This innovative public/private model is the first of its kind in the state of Texas. These two schools operate through a shared services agreement. By 2026, Yellowstone Schools will provide a life-changing experience to 750 students in PreK-3 through 12th grade on one campus. 

Mission and Vision 

At Yellowstone, we believe every student is born with purpose and destined for success. We inspire, empower, and invest in our students to achieve their highest potential and fulfill their intended purpose.

Growing to Serve High School

We serve students from communities where there is no access to strong traditional educational opportunities. With an average class size of 20 to 22 children, our students experience a rich academic and co-curricular model, while receiving transportation assistance, two meals a day, and access to a comprehensive student support program. 

Yellowstone operates on a beautiful Third Ward campus built in 1927 that is less than half a mile from downtown Houston.

Building Significant Relationships

In the words of Dr. James Comer, “No significant learning can occur without significant relationships.” Employees will be supported by a school leadership model that includes a strong admin team and instructional coaches. Our goal is to form intentional, significant relationships with students which enable them to overcome obstacles and learn in significant ways.

We are building an incredible team of educators, and we invite you to join us!

COMPETITIVE BENEFITS

Yellowstone Schools offers a competitive salary, comprehensive benefit package, small class sizes, instructional coaching and support, matching retirement options, Health Saving Account, paid time off, paid wellness day, and performance bonuses.
