    I love the school. It made a great impact on me the Teachers are tough but they just care for your education. The teachers are AMAZING! once you get to know them I would know I was an excellent student who participated in most of the clubs. I would totally recommend this school because it will have so many opportunities for 5th graders. With experiencs like never before. Before.

    Currently I am a junior in High School and while I attended KIPP I complained about the homework and the times but now I see the great impact KIPP had on me it thought me leadership discipline and how to excel in school and prepared me for High School and college. KIPP has one of the most challenging academic programs but unlike other schools the teachers are always there for you. While I attended the current principal was a high school placement teacher since I applied to private schools I spent more time with her and what I can say is she might be a little tough sometimes but she cares about the students. Anyway I'd like to thank KIPP Adelante for everything.- Jesus Rubalcaba

    Well I think that this school has had a great impact on my life and I'm ready to go to high school now! thank you KIPP Adelante for helping me take a huge leap to college. KIPP doesn't just teach you how to get to college intellectually but also characteristically... a great scholar doesn't just have a great brain but a great heart! The teachers also have been so kind to me! thank you KIPP Adelante! - Anthony Manning

    Thank goodness there are a few teachers that are allowed to continue to work there or else the school would be a lost cause. The leadership doesn't know how to respect students. One even called my sister a disgrace to her family. What right do they have to say that.

    I've sent three children to this middle school and I love it. My kids have gone to San Francisco learned how to play the violin and currently one is enrolled at one of the best boarding schhools out there. The teachers care and the Principal is easily accessible. If you want your kids to learn how to work hard this is the place.

    Two fires continuously leaking bathrooms and teachers that treat students like they are nothing. Why would any parent send their child to this school I will never know. I'm so glad I pulled my child before it was too late.

    Principal lacks the qualities that promote a positive learning and teaching atmosphere. She is inconsistent in everything that she says and does and is rarely seen at after school functions. I would strongly encourage anyone that is considering enrolling his or her child in this school to please reconsider.

    This school is unfair. The new principal is always picking on my daughter's grade level. She always tries to find some little excuse to get them in trouble. She picks favorites throughout the school and obviously it ain't my daughter's grade. She is consistently picking on them for no reason. And uses any little thing to make them look bad in front of the whole school.

    This school is mediocre at best. Teachers are okay however they are not consistent. The school does not have any set policies or rules so there is never a clear message on what is okay and what is not. Academics are subpar. Leadership is new and it is obvious.

    What can you say about a school that used to be great once but now is so far in the dumps most teachers wouldn't send their own children to KIPP Adelante. The new change in Leadership has left a sour taste in my mouth and caused me to pull my child from KIPP. The principal's lack of interest in bullying is frightening. Her complete disregard to the safety of the students and their overall well being makes me wonder how she ever became the principal. I would strongly suggest you send your child to a

    This school is a joke. They are on their third principal and she is the worst of them all. She has no idea how to handle the kids and their needs nor does she know how to hire and hold onto good teachers. Students are treated like dirt by the principal and many of the teachers. And the lack of respect towards the parents is ridiculous. My child was put into an in school suspension and not allowed to go to his history class for 8 days and not once was I notified by the school. After calling the principal and the teachers several times I was told that it was part of the commitment to excellence. That is bull what about their commitment to teaching my child??? How is he supposed to learn when he is not allowed in class.

    This school is gay like i am not even playing they treat the kids like adults and the truth is they are not. This school is too tuff on them they dont have no fun and they need to enjoy them self instead of going to school at 7 30 and comming out at 5 00.

    My child just entered KIPP this year as a 5th grader in San Jose area KIPP.I can see the dedication from the teacher the principal to the secretary; everyone is so involved and caring that they will do the best job for the students here. They also expect the students doing their best here no excuse no short cut. My son enjoys going to school so much that ;everyday going home after almost 10 hours at school; he still wants to do more work for the next day.KIPP can bring the worst in a student to be the best in one. I am so grateful finding KIPP.

    My child attended Kipp for four years the first year was the best. My daughter excelled in all of her classes. The teachers were truly dedicated and it showed in the students attitude. The second year was not as good. I could feel that the parent involvement was not appreciated. If there was a problem the teachers and/or the principal parents and student should work to resolve the matter. This was not the the case at Kipp.

    I think it's a really good school I think people should know more about this school.

    I dint knew how this school could be so good until I sent my child there after the first day of school my child could not stop thinking of school and how teachers were teaching him so much. My child told me something that I dint know that was taught to him in school. I totally recommend this school to everyone.
