About The School

School Mission
KIPP schools are united by a common mission, a commitment to excellence, and a belief that if we help children develop the academic and character strengths they need for college and choice filled lives, they will be able to build a better tomorrow for themselves, for their communities, for us all.

Quick Facts
  • We have a rigorous, college prep curriculum starting in kindergarten that also focuses on character and leadership.
  • We take our students on various trips throughout the year that increase their learning and character, such as college tours, hands-on learning experiences and theater performances.
