    Though this is only my first year in Kipp DC College Prep, I’ve been with Kipp for quite sometime. The teachers care and make sure learning is a top priority. They ensure that every student gets the education they deserve. If your unable to come to school for medical reasons or anything else they will send a teacher to teach you in addition to providing a laptop and internet access so you do not fall behind in your studies. A school and teachers that care is number 1 in my book.

    I like that at kipp, we get prepared for college here , we get lots of work and even though a lot of us don't like that it does prepare us for college , we get lots of tests, which helps out with our study habits. I feel like at our school a lot of the kids are connected with eachother, everyone was really supportive of the football team this year and they had a good year this year too, we also support the basktball team a lot and all sports and our basketball team won the championship last year, so its fun at kipp, but it can be grueling and hard work but its all worth it.
    My experience at Kipp college Preparatory is exceptional. It’s a good school because of its academics. It’s also considered one of the top academic schools in Washington DC. When it comes to the teachers most of the teachers do really well with teaching and your experience would be better if you build a relationship with your teachers. When it comes to the deans they are very supportive but they mainly focus on our safety so they provide a school bus to and from the train station in the morning and after school. Although there food isn’t very appealing or appetizing. But the only thing about Kipp that makes it look bad is the violence which needs to be worked on but overall Kipp is a very good school.
