KIPP ACADEMY
ELEMENTARY SCHOOL

ENROLLTEACH

Our mission is to teach our students to develop the academic and character skills necessary to succeed in high school and college, to be self-sufficient, successful, and happy in the competitive world, and to build a better tomorrow for themselves and us all.

From the beginning, KIPP has focused on developing academic and character skills. Since day one, the key to our success has been the amazing teamwork of families, students, and teachers working together. Above all else, our goal for our KIPPsters is to be excited to take on the challenges that lie ahead because they feel prepared and capable.

We combine curriculum and character education through our SPROUT values: Serenity, Pride, Respect, Optimism, Understanding, and Taking a Risk.

We aim for our students to:

  • Be on or above grade level in all subjects upon finishing the fourth grade – as reflected not only in test scores but also by having a deep understanding of relevant materials and skills.
  • Crave knowledge and be true lifelong learners.
  • Know and appreciate not only their own culture and heritage, but also to grow an appreciation for the cultural heritages of others.

Special programs include art, music, dance, theater, and physical education.
Students have access to iPads and Chromebooks to enhance their math and reading skills. We provide Integrated classrooms, Special Education Teacher Support Services, Counseling, Speech Therapy, Occupational Therapy, and Physical Therapy.
