Fun And Whole-Student Learning

Sometimes the best learning comes from the social skills gained by interacting with the people around you. Longer school days mean more opportunities for culture and activities such as sports, reading, technology, after school clubs and more.

The KIPP Connection

We are part of KIPP, which has been around since 1994 and is the largest group of charter schools in the country. What that means is we get to share best practices to learn from each other and our long history. Each school we open makes us better equipped to meet the needs of all children.
