KIPP Whittier Elementary

KIPP Whittier Elementary teachers create a love of learning by providing students with foundational skills needed to close the achievement gap and revolutionize their education, their community, and their future throughout their time at KIPP New Jersey and beyond.

Kid Focused:

All decisions in the school are about what is best for our scholars and their lives. We recognize that we don’t make short term gains for long term compromises. We take seriously the opportunity to be a part of changing the educational landscape in Camden but more importantly, creating a choice filled life for the children within this city.

Goal Oriented:

Our expectations of our scholars’ are extremely high and we believe that we can ensure that all of our scholars meet these high goals that we have set for them.  We know that our scholars can and will achieve whatever bar we set for them by creating, reaching, and surpassing the academic goals that we alongside our families have set for them.

Community Driven:

We are active members of our community who are constantly striving to provide students with the opportunities to positively interact and impact the city of Camden. Whether we’re inviting families in or conducting instructional field lessons throughout the city our students become masters of the world around them.
