Rigorous Curriculum and Instruction
All students will learn and achieve at high levels when given the opportunity. To prepare students with the skills and content knowledge needed to be successful in college and their careers, KIPP teachers deliver high-quality, rigorous curriculum and instruction. By monitoring academic progress, KIPP teachers know what their students need and tailor instruction so every child receives the appropriate level of support and challenge.
Culture of Achievement and Support
We believe that an excellent college-prep education will set students up for success in whatever life path they choose.
That’s why KIPP students, families, and teachers form a partnership that puts learning first. KIPP students, parents, and teachers all sign a learning pledge called the “Commitment to Excellence,” that lays out the role they each play in ensuring a positive school experience.
One of the first things they told us was that we all had the potential to go to college. I knew they meant it.Lexi Johnson-Lee, Alumna, KIPP Minnesota
