Two days a year are given to you to visit our other campuses as well as schools of excellence throughout the country.
If you’re a new teacher you’ll be observed once a week and given feedback to help you soar.
Whether it’s in-house or part of a retreat, we offer programs for deans, school leaders, grade-level and department chairs and more.

If a trip around the world helps students flourish, then let’s start planning.
At KIPP New Jersey, our teachers find different ways to have an impact in their students’ lives. Here are just a few ways they do it.

At KIPP New Jersey, we’ve got you covered.
Our plans start the day you do. You can put away pre-taxed dollars for childcare, new glassed and medicine. And KIPP puts money into your Health Savings Account if you enroll.
You can contribute your pre-taxed dollars to an optional 403(b) plan and we’ll match a portion.
All KIPP New Jersey teachers are enrolled in a state pension plan. If you’re already enrolled we’ll work with you to roll your plan over. If you join our non-instructional operations, we’ll help you roll your pension into a 403(b).
