KIPP Nashville is a network of high-performing, college preparatory public schools that has been committed to creating a vibrant, college-going culture in North and East Nashville since 2005. KIPP Nashville is partnered with the acclaimed KIPP Network, which serves over 70,000 students nation-wide and sends low-income students to college at a rate 5x higher than that of their peers.
KIPP Nashville currently operates 1 elementary school (KIPP Kirkpatrick Elementary School), 2 middle schools (KIPP Academy Nashville and KIPP Nashville College Prep), and 1 high school (KIPP Nashville Collegiate High School). Our alumni have achieved a 95% high school graduation rate and are supported to and through college by our KIPP Through College program. We are excited to expand our K-16 continuum by growing to 7 schools by 2020.
The mission of KIPP Nashville is to cultivate in its students the character and academic skills needed to succeed in rigorous high schools and colleges and to become productive citizens in the world beyond. If you share in this belief, if you have a proven willingness to do whatever it takes for students to achieve, if you thrive in an environment that is both collaborative and entrepreneurial, then you are already a KIPP teacher.
