At KIPP Academy West, we believe that our KIPPsters are developed one at a time. We will meet each KIPPster where they are and support them with love on their journey of continuous learning. Through a strong foundation in literacy, standards-based rigorous instruction, character education, and real-world learning experiences our KIPPsters will be empowered to be critical thinkers and problem solvers. As the leaders of tomorrow, we will prove the possible on our journey to and through college and in life.
KIPP Academy West will be entering year 2 and serve 216 5th and 6th graders for the 2016-17 school year.
KIPP Academy West will grow over the next three years to serve over 400 5th-8th grade students from the Mission Bend and Alief neighborhoods of Houston.
KIPP Academy West will provide college preparatory instruction with a focus on personalized learning and growth, a solid foundation in literacy, and a robust extra-curricular program.
