In July 2005, a team of six teachers founded KIPP Infinity Charter School with 88 fifth graders from Washington Heights, West Harlem, and the South Bronx. In 2008-09, KIPP Infinity grew to full size (grades 5-8) with 285 students and was the number one public school in New York City, as determined by the NYC Department of Education Annual Progress Reports.
KIPP Infinity students continue to have great academic success. In addition, KIPP Infinity offers a wide arrange of enrichment activities including dance, band, journalism, chorus, flag football, basketball, volleyball, and cross country, providing an opportunity for students to develop new skills and interests and to build character strengths that benefit them in their core academic classes and their lives outside the classroom.
The mission of KIPP Infinity 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.
