About KIPP Bay Area Schools

 

KIPP is a non-profit network of 209 college-preparatory, public charter schools around the country educating early childhood, elementary, middle, and high school students. KIPP schools are united by a common mission, a commitment to excellence, and a belief that if we help children develop the academic and character strengths they need for college and choice filled lives, they will be able to build a better tomorrow for themselves, for their communities, and for us all.

 

There are currently 12 KIPP schools in the Bay Area educating over 5,200 students in East Palo Alto, Oakland, San Francisco, San Lorenzo, San Jose, and Redwood City. In the fall of 2018, KIPP Bay Area Schools plans to open a new high school in East San Jose and a new elementary school in the Bayview Hunter's Point.
