By 2025, KIPP DC will build upon two decades of proven results to develop into a more impactful, innovative, and inclusive school system, that provides joyful, identity-affirming learning experiences so that all students and alumni achieve extraordinary outcomes. We are a network of eighteen schools educating nearly 7,000 students and employing 1,200 teachers, leaders, and staff members dedicated to our mission. As part of the KIPP network’s 255 schools, we share best practices and innovations with our peers across the city and country.
Our work is grounded in a commitment to excellence, equity, and justice. We believe all students have the right to rigorous, relevant, and joyful learning experiences led by exceptionally talented and diverse educators who promote student achievement and a sense of belonging. We pride ourselves on providing unparalleled professional development and leadership opportunities. We acknowledge the demands of the teaching profession and continually seek to improve sustainability, benefits, and supports for teachers. We are seeking teachers who are passionate about educational equity, driven by student and family relationships, and constantly seeking to grow.
The vision of Middle Schools at KIPP DC is to have inclusive, identity affirming and learning rich spaces where student voice is elevated and student growth is emphasized. We want our students to feel supported in their growth areas and recognized for all of their strengths, so we strive to develop both their academic and social/emotional skills.
Through powerful lessons and relationships, middle school teachers lead student learning in English Language Arts, math, science, social studies, special education, and a diverse range of specials courses. In core subjects, 5-8th grade teachers implement research-based curricula that are Common Core aligned and student centered. Curricula is added to and revised by a committee of teachers and leaders focusing on culturally relevant and responsive pedagogy. All teachers reinforce a love of reading by integrating authentic literacy tasks across content areas.
Through ample planning time, grade level and content meetings, and wellness and development days, teachers work collaboratively with peers at their school and across our six middle schools in the network. Teachers receive feedback and support from school leaders, network content coaches, grade level chairs, and other teammates. School culture at the middle school level is grounded in Positive Behavior Incentives Systems (PBIS) led by a dedicated PBIS Coordinator at each school. Student identity and creativity is recognized through weekly celebrations and a myriad of clubs ranging from Project Lit to martial arts.
