The school itself is a pretty decent place to send your child. The teachers are very understanding and caring. Our teachers take time to go above and beyond the curriculum and teach life lessons that you wouldn’t receive elsewhere. If you are transferring from an Atlanta Public High School, then the work may seem foreign. The AP for all shouldn’t be for all. The food is ight’. The school spirit is crap! The students don’t really believe in the school itself. There are barely any fights because the students aren’t really about it. If you want your child to have some kind of support during college, then this school is the place. KTC works hard for the KIPP students especially when it’s time to start applying for colleges. KIPP isn’t that bad of a school. I feel like it could offer more classes and electives of course. For this school to be sending off it’s fourth set of seniors, it’s doing a good job.

I feel as far as Kipp goes, they do a really good job with making sure we go, “Above and Beyond” when it comes to getting us to and through college. A lot of the teachers and staff are very helpful as far as making sure everyone is on track providing the essential tools needed for us to learn and grow as more than just students but as people also. Kipp changes the way we think sort of forcing us outside of our comfort zones giving us and extra push we need to be successful later on in life. It’s not the “best” school but isn’t far from it either. There’s a lot of things Kipp can improve but since I’ve been there, (starting in 2016) I can honestly say that it has changed a lot. There are many good changes (some better than others). Although there is still some room for improvement, Kipp Atlanta Collegiate does its best in providing a very efficient learning environment for its students.
I like the fact that KIPP Atlanta Collegiate is a college-bound Charter school, which prepares scholars for college and the many different experiences the will have and endure. There are various clubs which I had the pleasure participating in. There are different electives students can choose from and there are pretty great staff there. The staff are supporting and challenge scholars not only for college, but also for the real world/reality. Last, but not least, KIPP has offered the opportunity to take the PSAT, which will boost a students' chance of being accepted to a college, rather they fail or pass it. The school culture is really aspiring. The culture focuses on different values of success, which consist of diligence, unity/teamwork, and tenacity. These values help to incorporate the overall objective of KIPP Atlanta Collegiate.KIPP has made my high school year an unforgettable experience.
