Building authentic relationships with our students is the foundation of our school. We will have a daily advisory period that is designed to respond to student needs and offer a safe space for them to converse with peers, set and celebrate their goals, engage in social-emotional lessons, and talk with professionals about their field of interest—to name just a few!

Excellent and Affirming

Every child will receive an excellent and affirming education. We hold ourselves to the highest standards academically and affirm the beauty and strength every member of our community contributes. In all classes, students will explore how a particular lesson or topic helps them learn more about themselves or others, helping to connect lessons to a deepening understanding of who they are.

To and Through College

With 74% of our 8th graders matriculating to college, we have created support structures to make sure they get the rest of the way through. Our dedicated KIPP Through College team will support our students with everything from navigating student loans to career counseling, even after they’ve left our school hallways.

Results That Matter

Though we focus on character, our students also receive an education that prepares them for college and beyond. In 2019, Mathematica released a study showing that the impact of attending a KIPP middle school could erase the racial achievement gap in four-year college enrollment rates nationwide -- attending KIPP following a middle school lottery produced an increase of 12.9 percentage points in enrollment rates in four-year college programs.
