KIPP Newark Lab High School

KIPP Newark Lab High School is KIPP New Jersey’s second high school, opening fall 2019 with 9th grade eventually growing to educate students in grades 9-12. NLHS will serve students from KIPP middle schools (TEAM, Rise, and BOLD Academies) when they step up from 8th grade along with some new-to-KIPP students from other Newark schools. Located in the Central Ward near NJIT and Rutgers-Newark, NLHS will offer a progressive, college preparatory educational experience, with a focus on project-based learning and design. AP course options will grow as the school grows, and students will have the opportunity to participate in clubs and sports at either NLHS or in conjunction with KIPP NCA.


DESIGN THINKING

“Design thinking” is a framework for solving problems. Beginning in 9th grade, students will enroll in a Design Elective, where they’ll learn some of the basic tenets of design thinking and engage in several design projects and challenges. Students will follow criteria like budget, size, or project duration, and then create! By the end of 12th grade, seniors will present their Life Design to an invited audience, describing their five-year post-high school plan.

SUPPORT

We support our kids to and through college. This goes beyond simply helping students find the school that’s right for them. Our advisors regularly meet students on college campuses, help them chart a course schedule, and host alumni events that offer opportunities for networking and exploring career opportunities. We aim to prepare our students to live choice-filled lives after graduation.

GUIDANCE

Our school provides students and families with ample data to determine whether or not a student is on track. They include three ACT diagnostics each year so students can see their progress on college readiness standards, regular progress reports with academic data on class performance metrics, discipline data, reading growth data, and many others. .

SUCCESS

KIPP Newark Lab High School will continue the tradition of excellence started by our first high school, Newark Collegiate Academy. On the last HSPA test, NCA 11th graders were 97% proficient in reading beating both Newark Public Schools and the state average and 69% proficient in mathematics, beating the Newark Public School district..
