KIPP NYC Results

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 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. As a baseline for measuring college completion, KIPP tracks students who complete 8th grade, rather than 12th grade graduates. This 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 2011-2012 exam period. State and city comparison data for the 2012-2013 academic year has not yet been released. City and state comparisons from the 2011-2012 school year include January, June, and August test administrations. KIPP NYC 2011-12 data represents the highest score on the June and August test administrations. KIPP NYC 2012-13 data represents the highest score from the 2012-2013 school year from 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 one 3rd grade since only one KIPP NYC school had a 3rd grade in 2012-2013.
