10 Reasons Why You’ll Love a Career at KIPP NYC


51% Character. 49% Academics.

We believe character education is as important to our students’ success as the development of their academic skills. We devote time to our students’ character growth every day and track their progress. Learn more about KIPP NYC and character.


You’re Worth It.

We work hard to attract exceptional teachers, we value their work, and believe they should be well compensated. On average, when you work at KIPP NYC, you’ll earn more than you would in traditional NYC public schools.



We let our teachers teach. We guide, equip, and empower you to do what you do best. We actively encourage innovation and collaboration among colleagues across grade levels, subjects, and schools. Teaching at KIPP NYC means you’re constantly surrounded by a team and family of educators, but, ultimately you are in control of your classroom.


We’re A Team.

Your KIPP NYC colleagues have your back inside and outside the classroom and they will hold themselves and all students to the same high expectations you do.


We’re A Family.

It’s a rare student who can achieve academic success without strong support at home. Our students’ families are meaningful partners in our work. Their engagement and support are essential and we work hard to earn it.


Our Focus Is To And Through College.

KIPP NYC support doesn’t stop once students graduate high school. That’s where our KIPP Through College team grabs the baton to provide guidance, resources, and more. Every day, KTC helps hundreds of KIPP NYC alumni prepare for, succeed in, and graduate from college. Learn more about KIPP Through College.


You’ll Always Be Learning.

We provide individualized instructional coaching, assessment resources, and the best curriculum materials used by successful teachers. Grow your career here as part of a national network of 3,000 KIPP teachers who participate in professional learning communities, leadership development programs, and extensive resource-sharing.


We Provide The Tools You Need.

Materials and resources bring your ideas to life. Your innovation and imagination are backed by access to the supplies, tools, and educational technologies you need to support your work and creativity in the classroom.


You’ll Make A Difference.

Over the years, our most effective practices and innovations have been adopted across the KIPP network. Thousands of students, for example, are using a math curriculum authored by our teachers here in New York City. It feels great to know that our work makes a difference not only to our students, but also to many others nationwide.


We Also Play Hard!

Yes, our motto is “Work hard. Be nice.” but at KIPP NYC – from our talent shows to our class trips and other offsite events and celebrations – we also play as hard as we work!
