KIPP ACADEMY
MIDDLE SCHOOL

ENROLLTEACH

As the first KIPP NYC school and the second KIPP school in the nation, KIPP Academy helped define what it means to “Work Hard” and “Be Nice.” Since 1995, we’ve dedicated ourselves to excellence, teaching our students the academic and character strengths needed for success in college, and in life. For years, we’ve consistently been ranked as one of the highest performing middle schools in the Bronx, proving to the students and the community that demographics are not destiny. KIPP Academy alumni graduate college at nearly five times the rate of students from similar backgrounds.

KIPP Academy students learn to play and read music, which helps build academic and character skills. The 180-piece KIPP Academy String and Rhythm Orchestra has performed at Carnegie Hall, the Apollo Theater, Madison Square Garden, and Mayor Bloomberg’s inauguration, among other venues with musicians such as Alicia Keys, Wynton Marsalis, Roger Waters, John Legend and John Mayer.
