KIPP AMP Academy (Knowledge Is Power Program: Always Mentally Prepared) is a middle school located in the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn. Founded in July 2005 by five teachers, now serves students in grades 5-8. All KIPP AMP students participate in a wide array of enrichment activities including band, debate, and Capoeira, providing an opportunity for students to develop new skills and interests and to build character strengths that benefit their academic and life preparation.
The mission of KIPP AMP is to teach our students to develop the character and academic 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.
Support - As a network of public charter schools, KIPP schools receive the majority of their funds from state and federal governments. However, KIPP offers much more than traditional schools, including an extended school day, week and year, field trips and extracurricular activities. To provide KIPP’s unique educational program, schools rely on support from community members, parents and local foundations.
