The Irma Rangel Young Women's Leadership School is a member of the Young Women's Preparatory Network, a nonprofit organization that partners with public school districts to operate the largest network of all-girls’, public, college-preparatory schools in the nation. All YWPN schools feature a STEM-focused curriculum, and a majority of students are economically disadvantaged. The core values are college readiness, leadership and wellness life skills. More information about YWPN can be found at http://youngwomensprep.org/.
Irma Lerma Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School is proud to be the first all girls’ public school in Texas. Our mission is to provide young ladies in grades six through 12 with a global education that emphasizes mathematics, science, and technology in a rigorous Pre-Advanced Placement academic environment.
Rangel School ensures our young ladies have the skills and knowledge needed to graduate from a four-year college institution. Leadership makes the difference as students give back in their communities through required volunteer service and summer institute programs.
Our staff is dedicated to preparing our young ladies to compete in a global society. Teachers are trained through College Board programs, receive 24-hours of advanced technology training, and attend national and international training sessions to provide students with cutting-edge innovations and the best practices in education. Faculty and staff have high expectations of each young lady in the classroom and beyond as students thrive through their participation in extracurricular activities, including Choir, Hand Bells, UIL, Lacrosse, Robotics, Mock Trail, Debate and Academic Decathlon.
Irma Lerma Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School graduated its first class in 2009 and continues to serve its motto: Girls Today. Women Tomorrow. Leaders Forever.
In addition to being a member of the Young Women's Preparatory Network (YWPN), Irma Rangel is also a member of the National Coalition of Girls' Schools (NCGS), and an affiliate school of the Young Women's Leadership Network (YWLN).
