I have been going to Kipp since 5th grade and I'm going to graduate in a few months. Kipp Collegiate has improved on my education by a lot. By either helping to have a great act score by having free tutoring during school. even during school time having free tutoring/ office hours during lunch. Giving so many opportunities for a better future. But Kipp doesn't only focus on education, it focuses on the behavior. Kipp has a strict behavior system. To make sure that when its time to get to the real world we know how to act infront of others. By teaching us the right way to shake someone's hand, how to make a conversation to an unknown person, helping us with a job interview.

well the teachers are good they just baby us to much and it just needs a better budget. The clubs are are small and not that much. The clubs that have a lot of budget and stuff are mostly picked on favorites. So like robotics and SNHS is all based on favorites, the way i would change it is by letting all the science teachers who stays or who gets in. Not just one person that just wants people who they're cool with. The freedom here is very strict than other schools. For examples most schools let students use their phones during transitions and hear music stuff like that we aren't allowed to do. Also staff force their politics down on to us and not everyone's voice is heard.
I've been part of KIPP for almost 7 years now. I became part of the community right away as the community is filled with caring teachers, staff, and alumni. KIPP mainly focuses on preparing its alumni for college through its program KIPP Through College. In this program, mentors guide the students all the way from freshman year till they graduate in college. They are there the whole time offering help and mentor-ship. This is a great school with no problem of bullying, good academics and a great community.
