ENROLLTEACH

KIPP STAR Harlem College Prep Elementary School is a movement of learners who illuminate the power that resides within. We honor each authentic journey, and we champion the perseverance required to move beyond obstacles. Excellence is our expectation! Thus, we cultivate citizens of the world through the implementation of rigorous, culturally relevant, multimodal learning.

We own the future of the Harlem community, therefore we tenaciously prepare our students to take charge of it. We stand in our choices and are unshakable in our commitment to ensuring that every student has the opportunity to attend the college of their choice.

Our daily schedule includes two hours of Math instruction, two hours of Reading instruction, small leveled literacy groups, Science / Social Studies and Computer-based digital learning. Students take daily Arts Classes, rotating between Gymnastics, Visual Arts, Dance, Music and Blocks. Students also have recess each day.

Our families are an essential part of our community. We have many family events, including monthly Coffee & Conversations, quarterly Saturday School events where families learn how to support their children at home in different subjects (and join in fun extracurriculars!) and annual events like our Family Feast, end of year Carnival and Staff-Family March Madness Basketball Game.
