KIPP King Collegiate High School Reviews
I liked KIPP because it was a small school, so there was a deep sense of community and everyone knew each other. All the students had an opportunity to get to know the teacher a little more personally, because the school was so small, and this really helped with the community of respect and learning. However, there weren't a lot of recreational sports offered and there weren't many opportunities for exploring art. The administration was also very choosy about which clubs received more funding and exposure, which showed students what the school values and what they think is unimportant which was really unfair.
Something that I like about KIPP King Collegiate High school is that they are very college based. Meaning that they focus on helping students get to college. However, one thing that I would like to change about KIPP King is that they are very unorganized with their teachers, because there have been a lack of teachers since the very beginning. A very strong teacher had been fired due to a very controversial incident and there was two other teachers that quit since first quarter. Therefore, even though they really focus on prepping students for college, they need to become more organized with staff members.
What I personally like about Kipp King is the freshmen orientation all incoming freshmen have. When I was a freshman, I didn't know anyone at Kipp; I saw a lot of different faces and was honestly scared about making friends. During my freshmen orientation, I was given the opportunity to meet my fellow classmates and create bonds that would later evolve. Freshmen orientation was just the beginning of my high school journey with all my new friends I made along the way during different activities that had made bonds stronger.
