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.
Family Involvement at KIPP DC
Family involvement is essential to the success of each of our 16 schools. There are numerous ways to get involved and support your KIPPsters' school! One of the ways includes joining a KIPP Parent Organization. Head to your KIPPsters’ school to learn more:
