Academics

KIPP King Collegiate correlates its curriculum objectives to the California Content Standards adopted by the California State Board of Education. The school’s focus is not to change what the state feels are appropriate academic outcomes, but rather to ensure that all students master all areas of the California Content Standards. Teachers work with the School Leader to determine the curricula that best match student needs. Incoming student needs and performance levels determine the weight that teachers place on different elements of the curriculum. The school’s expectation is to accelerate student learning to ensure that mastery of the state standards is achieved at a faster pace. An accelerated pace is necessary to prepare students for the rigorous and challenging curriculum they will encounter in the school’s Advanced Placement programs.

KIPP King Collegiate combines the California Content Standards with the pedagogical methodologies that have proven successful in established KIPP Schools. The state standards are supplemented in the following ways: character education, extra-curricular activities, technology, and community service. Clear and specific academic objectives are mastered at each grade level as students move through the curriculum at KIPP King Collegiate’s intensified pace.

The content of the KIPP King Collegiate curriculum will focus on building upon foundational skills coupled with an emphasis on higher order thinking processes in all content areas. In accordance with state regulations, KIPP King Collegiate provides the standard age-appropriate curriculum for Mathematics, Science, English-Language Arts, History-Social Science, and Visual-Performing Arts at each grade level. These courses are supplemented by KIPP King Collegiate’s enrichment classes, which provide extra time for critical thinking skills and advanced curriculum.

Character

The four virtues of KIPP King Collegiate provide the principles that drive character development at our school.

Humanity | We will establish a safe and respectful community where all students feel loved, supported, and cared for by every individual. Our instruction, school culture, and the ethos of every aspect of school sponsored clubs, events, systems, and structures will be done with the practice of kindness, care, and compassion.

Wisdom | We will develop within our students the ability to discern or judge what is true, right, or lasting. Students will create meaning and insight by connecting what they have learned to common sense and good judgment.

Courage | Students at King will possess an uncharacteristic and steadfast courage in the face of all obstacles big and small, and develop the quality of spirit that enables them to face difficulty, danger, and discomfort without fear while living and acting in accordance with their own values and beliefs.

Justice | We will create an academic curriculum and culture where students understand and develop a conception and personal practice of justice. King students will develop and/or refine their ability to adhere to the principal of moral rightness and equity—a commitment to doing what is right and just in every separate case.
