Before founding KIPP Austin Vista Middle School, Laura Farber was the assistant principal at KIPP Austin Academy of Arts & Letters. She also worked as a 6th grade teacher and grade level chair at YES Prep and a fourth grade teacher at MacArthur Elementary School in Houston, Texas. KIPP Austin Vista focuses on individual student growth and investment through daily reading and writing workshop, utilizing technology in the math classroom, and offering weekly clubs that allow students to pursue extracurricular interest.
KIPP Austin Public Schools will empower underserved students to strengthen the academic skills, intellectual habits, and character traits necessary to thrive in, and graduate from, four-year colleges and universities, giving them the freedom to shape their futures and positively affect their communities.
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.
