KIPP alumni obtain college degrees at 4 times the rate of low-income students nationally.
Our students dramatically outpace their peers with respect to high school graduation, college matriculation, and college graduation.
Our high school students consistently outperform their peers across the New York City and New York State on Regents exams. Our middle and elementary school students continue to outpace their city and state peers on state math assessments and their local community peers on state English Language Arts exams.
KIPP NYC students are 97 percent African-American or Latino, 90 percent qualify for free or reduced price lunch, and 100 percent are admitted through a random, open lottery. Their results consistently prove that demography does not determine destiny.
Note: An additional 7% of KIPP NYC alumni have earned a 2-year degree. Figures above include all 8th grade completers and a very small percentage of students who did not attend a KIPP middle school but completed 12th grade at KIPP. Many institutions report college matriculation and completion rates based solely on 12th grade graduates. Our approach ensures that our college completion rates account for students who drop out before completing high school and provides a fuller picture of our students’ success on the road to and through college.
Note: New York State and New York City comparison scores are based on data from the 2012-2013 exam period. State and city comparison data for the 2013-2014 academic year has not yet been released. City and state comparisons year include January, June, and August test administrations. KIPP NYC scores represent the highest score on the June and August test administrations.
Note: KIPP NYC middle schools serve students who enter KIPP NYC schools in 5th grade. We do not currently have students feeding into our middle schools from our growing elementary schools.
Note: KIPP NYC results are for two 3rd grades since only two KIPP NYC schools had a 3rd grade in 2013-2014.
