By partnering with parents, teachers, community members, and the Alum Rock Union Elementary School District, KIPP Heartwood proves that with the necessary desire, discipline, and dedication, East San Jose students can perform at the same high levels as other students in Santa Clara County. KIPP Heartwood puts students on a solid track to success in high school, college, and the competitive world beyond. Our school derives its name from the redwood tree. The living tissue, or core, of a redwood tree is called the heartwood. When a redwood tree is damaged, it rebuilds itself from its heartwood.
