    KIPP is the best! I worked at KIPP DC and was highly impressed by the ability to reach students where they were. My husband is directly i involved with KIPP Indy and we are always amazed at the progress they make each year. Go KIPP!

    I can certainly say it can be compared to a private tuition paying school! Their core values and the staff speak for itself. Also their one-on-one relationship with the students are phenomenal.

    My granddaughter attends this school and it is excellent. KIPP not only prepares the children for a higher base education but also prepares them socially. Hurray for KIPP Indianapolis. I can't wait until my next granddaughter is in the fifth grade. P. Gardiner

    My child is not a current student at KIPP however I am reviewing this school for next year. I had a site visit this month and the school was phenomenal. The teachers really are concerned with the students learning. The teaching techniques I viewed are top notch. The principal was also very active with the students. I'm excited to say that I will be enrolling my child for the next school year.
