KIPP Aspire Academy provides a unique education to our community of caring, compassionate, and critical thinkers with an uncompromising belief in others where all members are accepted, challenged, and pushed to change the world.
Offering athletics in schools is essential for fostering physical health and well-being among students, promoting an active lifestyle from an early age. Beyond fitness, sports teach valuable life skills such as teamwork, discipline, and perseverance, shaping well-rounded individuals prepared for challenges. We offer basketball, volleyball, soccer, and track.
At KIPP Aspire Academy, we use various methods for measuring student learning and growth. Throughout the school year, KIPP Texas students complete assessments designed to help us know how they are doing and how we can best help them expand their learning. Formal and informal assessments are used to inform instruction and ensure student needs are addressed. Families receive the results of assessments throughout the year and can discuss the results and student progress with teachers during regularly scheduled conferences.
KIPPsters can participate in clubs and organizations, including art, culinary arts, and choir.
