Rangel Young Women’s Leadership School

Our Motto: Girls Today, Women Tomorrow, Leaders Forever

Irma Rangel exists to nurture young women in leadership roles in a global society, through a community dedicated to rigorous educational and cultural experiences.


To ensure that students graduate from college, we will prepare young women to succeed in all fields, particularly: math, science, technology, leadership, and wellness.

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.

Mission Statement for the Paw Print the paw print logoedTO

The mission for the Paw Print is to present timely news and information to the Rangel YWLS community. We also aim to promote literacy, broaden students’ local and global perspectives while providing an opportunity for students to find, develop and share their individual/collective voices.

By reading the Paw Print, staffers hope Rangel’s future leaders will shape a view of our world through published articles, and by engaging (via posts) in dialogue on topics of interest.

The Paw Print is an open-student forum, not subjected to prior review, but we are a publication that adheres to the codes and standards of the Dallas ISD, also the University Interscholastic League.
