KIPP Lanning Square Primary

KIPP Lanning Square Primary is KIPP NJ’s founding school in Camden. Serving 644 students in grades K-4 as part of KIPP Cooper Norcross Academy, KLSP offers guaranteed enrollment for residents located in the Lanning Square and Cooper Plaza neighborhoods. KLSP is a renaissance school, which combines the autonomy of charter schools with a direct and cooperative relationship with the district and higher funding than traditional schools.

We are committed to helping all students develop their character through leadership, self-confidence and advocacy skills. These skills, combined with a rigorous standards-based curriculum, will help ensure our students are leaders both in and out of the classroom.


Each classroom has two teachers (and sometimes more!), ensuring students receive the support they need to excel. This model helps students learn and enables small groups, extensive interventions, continuous assessment and constant attention led by committed and passionate teachers.


KIPP Lanning Square Primary educates students starting in kindergarten and students have the option to continue with us through elementary, middle, and high school. Because KLSP is part of KIPP NJ, students also have an advisor and a KIPP Through College team to support them on their journey to and through college.


In KLSP’s first year, students’ average MAP test reading scores grew from a percentile of 37.9 to the 63.5th percentile by the end of the year. In math, scores grew from an average percentile of 25.1 to the 68th percentile by year’s end.
