The classes tend to be small, and the teachers are mostly young and relatable. KSJC does its best to prepare students for college. Students are required to take classes that help them figure out their long term plans and prepare them for standardized tests and college admissions. KSJC, however, doesn’t offer many courses that other school have. Currently, there are no formal classes for digital media, sculpting, photography, wood shop, Vietnamese, Japanese, French, etc. Also, teacher have to share and move classrooms because there aren’t many rooms and we don’t have an actual campus of our own.

I really enjoyed my experience at KIPP San Jose Collegiate. I came from a very big public school, where teachers didn't seem to care too much about the students. At KIPP, however, I immediately noticed the difference. I couldn't have asked for more caring and supportive teachers. Because of this support, I'm happy to say I'm going to a university on the east coast. Thank you KIPP!
KIPP San Jose Collegiate is definitely an academically based school. The teachers try their best to provide the help every single student needs, whether that means tutorials or one-on-one meetings for feedback. Not only that, KIPP takes pride in its 'wolfpack' atmosphere, which is basically how KIPP is your family. This is quite true, as every student has either a group of friends or a group of staff that they can call their family. However, the only thing about KIPP is that because we are expanding, the small campus can no longer fit all of us.
