KIPP Sharpstown is a college-preparatory charter school that aims to serve students in the Sharpstown and Gulfton communities. The team and family of KIPP Sharpstown College Prep works to ensure our students internalize the habits of self-reliance, honor, achievement, responsibility to others, and persistence. These values give our students the ability to become life-long learners capable of excelling in college and transforming tomorrow.
KIPP Sharpstown opened its doors in 2007 and serves approximately 425 college-bound 5th- through 8th-grade students.
Our student body is 80% Hispanic, 16% African-American, 2% Asian, and 1% Caucasian.
Our students complete a four-year sequence of college-prep classes comprised of English language arts, mathematics, science, and social studies. Each class has rigorous college-preparatory content to help students prepare for high school.
In addition, we work to help students develop academic habits to help them be successful in high school and college.
