KIPP San Francisco College Preparatory Reviews

To begin, at first I didnt like KIPP because it had too many rules and it was so irritating that I had to lose my lunch for 20 minutes. I think teachers abused their powers as teachers to punish many students, but the beginning of this school year was different. KIPP now is the best school ever. Our new principal is very chill and he actually understands and listens to what the students want to see at the school. We have more fun and engaging events that make all the students closer.

When I started KIPP it was their fourth year. I was one of three non-minority at the school. Freshman year I felt very uncomfortable at the school as a kid who did not fit in with the different race that was there. Slowly I made more and more friends that I kept until senior year. My graduating year is a closed knitted community where we all create jokes together and even sometimes hang out during the weekends. Our teachers are also great even though we have a high teacher turnover rate. Our relationship with our teacher are really good as I have a teacher who taught me for only 5 months in freshman year before he quit still texts me and we hangout during weekend and share our life stories. Overall my school is an average school because of the turnover rate and also the diversity at the school.
At KIPP San Francisco College Prep they made sure we were college ready. They made sure our grades and test score were where they needed to be by taking time. Inaddition, they made sure we understand everything that's being taught. Although KIPP is very good with academics we are not a school known for sports. KIPP teachers make sure are academics are good rather than sport. I believe it is to be known for our test scores and grade average but KIPP should make sure the students are more involved with extra curricular activities.
