KIPP Alegría Primary School is founded and rooted in JOY. Established in the summer of 2020, this school merges KIPP Connections Elementary and KIPP Leadership Elementary to leverage the strengths of these two school communities and launch one of the first pre-K programs in the KIPP Texas-Austin region.

The students of KIPP Alegría will build the skills to become lifelong learners, pursue social justice, and avid world citizenship. At KIPP Alegría, our KIPPsters will gain confidence not only in their ability to master their rigorous academic content, they will lead their peers in the ability to present to an audience and engage in meaningful and purposeful conversations with peers and adults.

At KIPP Alegría, we will focus on the promise we made to ALL our students. That is to provide a relevant, rigorous, and joyful educational experience in order to help them prepare to pursue the paths they choose – college, career, and beyond – so they can lead fulfilling lives and build a more just world.
