At KIPP schools:

  • parents are encouraged to be involved and contribute
  • teachers believe that all students will learn and achieve at the highest levels
  • students work hard and come to school ready to learn

We help students learn by:

  • creating a safe and structured learning environment
  • requiring parents, teachers, and students to all sign a Commitment to excellence form that sets clear expectations
  • extending the school day, week and year
  • offering extracurricular activities
  • organizing exciting end of year learning trips
  • having teachers available by cell phone after school for homework help
  • holding students accountable for behavior as well as academic success

Enroll your student today.

KIPP schools are tuition-free, open-enrollment public schools. Students are accepted regardless of background or academic record. If more students apply than spaces are available, students are admitted by lottery. Read what other parents are saying about KIPP.

To enroll your child, please contact the school in your community directly by phone or email.
