Of the seven high schools in the KIPP network as of summer 2008, three of those have been open long enough to post achievement results. KIPP high school students focus on college-readiness preparatory and placement exams, such as the Preliminary Scholastic Assessment Test (PSAT), the Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT), and subject-specific Advanced Placement (AP) tests. State criterion-referenced exams are provided in subjects and/or grades tested as required by each individual state.

Of the six elementary schools in the network as of summer 2008, two have been open long enough to post achievement results. Pre-kindergarten and kindergarten students at KIPP are performing at or above grade level as indicated by various "early learner" tests focusing on key literacy areas. Although not conclusive, these results suggest that KIPP's elementary students are establishing a solid foundation that will help them stay on track through elementary school, middle school, high school, and on to college.
