Principal's Message

Greetings, family! 

It is with great pride that I welcome you to YES Prep North Rankin Elementary, home of the NRE Sparks! I am so excited to embark on this journey of leading and guiding our school towards excellence. 

My vision for YES Prep North Rankin Elementary School is simple, but powerful – to disrupt mediocre education and provide our scholars with transformative education that meets the highest bar of excellence in ALL areas – because our kids deserve it. The path to college starts with the SPARK and we’re completely UNAFRAID to trailblaze and send them on a pathway where they feel empowered to excel, academically and personally. 

As principal, my role is to ensure that your students are safe and secure while focusing on high-quality instruction for EVERY student.  Our school will come equipped a variety of supports for you and your students, including a nurse and Legacy clinic to help with physical health, a Student Support Counselor to help with social-emotional health, daily recess, a library with over 10,000 books, and extra-curricular activities for parents and students to participate in! 

Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it today. The SPARKS that step through these doors deserve and will receive the BEST PART of me and every other educator responsible for influencing young minds. I look forward to welcoming all our SPARKS to YES Prep North Rankin Elementary for the 2024-2025 school year! Let’s go, NRE!
