Middle School at KIPP Texas

5th – 8th Grade: Path to College, Career, & Beyond

Rooted in a deep understanding of a child’s changing needs from elementary to middle school, our middle schools nurture the academic and social-emotional growth of students.


Middle School Experience

Our students learn to think deeply, write passionately, and engage thoughtfully through rigorous learning experiences. From student-led discussions, to analyzing texts, to researching and visiting local colleges, students grow by stepping out of their comfort zone.

Personalized learning approaches address each child’s individual needs. We emphasize social-emotional lessons, awareness, and reflection that support student growth.

Emphasis on the importance of diversity, equity, and inclusion further empowers middle school students to develop their unique social and communication skills, fosters belonging, and encourages growth.

We provide free bus transportation across our regions to support families with a safe, reliable ride to and from school.

We provide free, nutritionally balanced breakfast and lunch daily to fuel academic focus and build lifelong healthy habits.

Rooted in
Support & Connection

I like that my school challenges me a lot and I feel that I have learned a lot compared to my previous school. The teachers help me and really push me to do good in my class.

– Ivan S., KIPP Texas Student
