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.


Our journey together starts with a visit to each child’s home before orientation, and continues through their education path. Every student who finishes middle school with us gets an alumni advisor and a KIPP Through College team to support their progress to and through college.


Caring about and being an active part of the community is a core value. Seek scholars partner with the Boys and Girls Club of Newark for after-school activities, take care of a community garden and learn about being the change in weekly values lessons.


Our elementary students typically finish elementary school around the 70th percentile in math nationally and the 60th percentile in reading after starting closer to the 25th percentile. They also start fifth grade well ahead of other fifth graders in Newark.
