Are you ready to do meaningful work?

Our student’s success depends on the elite team of teachers and staff we employ. We are looking for highly-qualified candidates who are excited about inspiring, empowering, and investing in students.

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 are determined to provide an high-quality education paired with the wrap-around support our students need to achieve success. The futures of our students depend on us, and we will not let them down. We will rise to the challenge, not because this work is easy, but because our students are more than worth the effort.

About Yellowstone

Founded in 2002, the 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 as they leverage the Academy’s fifteen years of success and expand to serve nearly 1,000 students in pre-K through 12th grade within the next five years. 

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.

Leveling the Playing Field

We serve students from communities where there is no access to strong traditional educational opportunities. With an average class size of 18 to 20 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 Superintendent, Principal, and Assistant Principal. 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!

All Hands on Deck!

We are building a school from the ground up, and we’ll give it to you straight – this work is hard. We have a big and bold vision for the future, but accomplishing big goals means everyone on the team is all in.

Our teachers and staff are working every day to lay the foundation for academic excellence and a positive, empowering school culture. We are looking for candidates who are passionate about educating children, and who are willing to go the extra mile to get the job done.
