KIPP Los Angeles Schools
How they are participating
KIPP LA Schools is a nonprofit organization that operates seven free, open-enrollment, public charter schools in under-resourced communities in Los Angeles. We are part of the nationwide KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program) network of 125 schools in 20 states and Washington, DC.
KIPP LA’s schools feature a “no shortcuts, no excuses” philosophy and a strong culture of achievement. Our curricula are designed to provide students a well-rounded education, with sufficient time dedicated to academics, the arts, enrichment, and physical education. KIPP LA’s educators are committed to continually improving their teaching skills, and to giving students the support and motivation they need to excel in school and beyond.
KIPP LA's mission is to teach the academic skills, foster the intellectual habits, and cultivate the character traits needed for our students to thrive in high school, college, and life.
Through the success of our students, the KIPP LA team and family will serve as a model of excellence and collaborate with others to raise the quality of education in Los Angeles.
For Giving Tuesday, KIPP LA Schools is accepting donations for its 2013 Annual Giving Campaign. These donations will help support KIPP LA Schools as we open seven new schools over the coming years to serve over 6,000 students.
