You manage classrooms like nobody’s business. You love data as much as the next geek. If there’s a student who needs extra support after school, you’ll jump in to help them succeed. You’re that passionate about our mission — and super focused on results. And if foil wrapping a coworker’s classroom with our students is part of the job, you’ll do that too. Anything for the team. Teaching experience is a must. Having taught in a low-income community? A serious plus. Most of all, you’re dedicated to teaching not because it’s a job, but because making a difference in the lives of children is your passion.
Still interested? Then KIPP NJ might be just the right fit for you.
To help our kids change their lives (and change the world!) we serve a large percentage of our community’s African American and Latino students who are low-income and eligible for special education services. The result? KIPP New Jersey students are four times more likely to graduate college than non-KIPP students in Newark’s public schools.
In 2017, 74% of our eighth-grade students went to college. What’s more, KIPP New Jersey students are 3.5 times more likely to graduate college than low-income students. And our dedicated KIPP Through College team will help get them there even after they’ve left our hallways.
KIPP students outperform the district and perform similarly to state test averages every year. In 2017, our 11th graders out-performed not only the district schools around them but also out-performed the wealthiest public schools in Essex County.
