KIPP Academy West opened in 2015, believing that we build leaders one at a time. We meet our KIPPsters where they are and support them with love on their journey of continuous learning to and through college. We believe in rigorous academics, restorative practices, community circles, and involvement in extracurricular clubs as a foundation for our KIPPsters’ success.
