POI: 25.772600, -80.213847
Young Women's Preparatory Academy (YWPA) is a grade 6-12 magnet school for girls, located in the Little Havana neighborhood of Miami, Florida. It is a part of Miami-Dade County Public Schools (MDCPS). YWPA was the first public school established in South Florida that was only for girls. The school was established in 2006, with a focus on mathematics, science, and technology. It had about 400 students as of 2012, and as of 2014 had about the same number. As of 2015 Concepción I. Martinez is the principal.
Programs
The Annual Women’s Symposium, which is like a career day, is held every year.
Academic achievements
Circa 2012, U.S. News & World Report ranked YWPA #26 in the United States and #2 in Florida. As of that year, 300 girls were on the school's waiting list. In 2013, YWPA won a Magnet Schools of Excellence Award from the Magnet Schools of America. Teachers and administrators at YWPA have attributed the school's success to its lack of boys; its mentorship program which has older students assist younger ones; its academic focus towards mathematics, science and technology; its small student body; and the teachers' concern for their students.
