KIPP King Collegiate High School Reviews

I love the cultural diversity of KIPP King, especially the celebration and appreciation of that diversity. Considering it is a small school, almost everyone knows each other, so it is quite a tight-knit community. There are numerous clubs available for all students to get together, share common interests, and make friends. There are definitely some downfalls, including the school food and the availability of sports. The food quality is quite poor and there are not many sports offered such as football; there is both men and women's soccer, softball, volleyball, basketball, and co-ed swimming. The school events are fun and engaging and there are many opportunities to get involved, giving a great high school experience overall.

One thing I enjoyed about KIPP King Collegiate High School is the environement and how helpful the teachers are. Teachers hold office hours almost everyday before and after school. This allows students struggling or falling behind in specific classes to go talk to the teacher in a smaller, one on one environment. By having these office hours, it demonstrates how caring the teachers there are about their students. They are willing to stay at school an extra couple of hours to make sure their students are confident in their work. However, one thing I would like to change at KIPP King is their sports programs. There is no football team making it hard for students who enjoy this sport to portray their talents. In addition, the school is put in a Division 5 league making it not very competitive for the athletes there who continue to yearly (Women's basketball).
This school has truly amazing teachers where they care about the students and their academics. The school brings creativity and great teamwork where students are learning effectively. We are all here to climb the mountain to college!
