our mission

Together with families and communities, we create joyful, academically excellent schools that prepare students with the skills and confidence to pursue the paths they choose- college, career, and beyond- so they can lead fulfilling lives and build a more just world.

Our Approach

We believe every student walks through the doors of school bearing gifts. Talent. Perspective. Drive. Inspiration. So at KIPP Public Schools, we support every student to see those gifts, then build the skills and confidence they need to pursue their highest aspirations.

The KIPP:KC philosophy encourages all students in the 3rd - 12th grade to participate in our athletic program. Athletics can afford student athletes of all walks of life a positive and challenging experience that aids their overall development. 



Teachers and Staff are the most important in-school factor contributing to student achievement. We believe that great instruction and a caring community results from innovation and collaboration. When something works, we celebrate it and share it broadly. Click the button below to see how you can join the KIPP KC family!
