Community ratings & reviews

  • (5 years ago)

    This school gives attention discipline caring and as much as I can tell a very good lesson plan.

  • (5 years ago)

    I have seen my grand children grow with the challenges set for them in this school.

  • (5 years ago)

    I like their ability blend teaching with the nurturing way they treat each child.

  • (5 years ago)

    Teachers look to push each and every child. As students progress they continue to push and challenge them so that they do not become bored. I have two children in the same grade and KIPP does not make them work at the same pace which is beneficial to both. KIPP tries very hard to help each child individually not just a class as a whole. Also KIPP does its best to keep the parents involved as we are an essential tool in the learning process.
