Students & Families
At KIPP DC, teachers, students, and families unite around the same fundamental goal: college and a life filled with choice.
To achieve this, we believe that an excellent education, coupled with meaningful relationships among students, families, schools, and communities, will equip students with the knowledge, skills, and mindsets to succeed in whatever life path they choose.
