    As a student here I dislike going here. Little mistakes we made in the past seem to haunt us forever...The principal openly admits to being judgemental & he is constantly targeting people for past actions. I cannot trust anyone in this school...we're suppose to be "team & family" but everyone is always at each others throats. We learn high level stuff but some of the staff here does not take their job seriosly. This school is alright but it has much improving to do.

    I think this school is great but the focus is not equal in all the subjects there is. I think there should be less time of school and equal out the subjects. Also add more sports so it could be fun.

    This school is above average academic progams especially math. Needs more balanced ethnic groups of two minor groups; to avoid further isolation and withdrawls.

    KIPP has an intensive academic program that challenges my child to learn at her very best. Strict discipline and a positive peer environment help to guide students toward making positive choices. Eighth grade curriculum includes high school selection and applications. The ultimate goal of this school is to prepare students for a quality high school experience leading toward college. This school is very diverse and offers a variety of arts and cultural experiences.
