KIPP Austin Comunidad opened its doors in 2010. Comunidad was chosen as a name because a strong TEAM always beats the impact an individual can make. The Latin root of “community” means “together in deliberate action.” Our school mascot is the honeybee. Honeybees work tirelessly in a highly functioning community (a hive) to produce a nutritious and delicious substance: honey. Like honeybees, our team works tirelessly to create knowledge. Knowledge is power!
KIPP Austin Comunidad offers a rigorous curriculum with a college-ready focus. Assessments align with our scope and sequences and assess the TEKS, ACT, and Advanced Placement (AP) standards where appropriate. All scope and sequences, and unit plans are housed online for our teachers to have easy access to for planning before implementation in the classroom.
Along with our excellent in-school curriculum, KIPP Austin Comunidad offers several after-school activities, including a dance team, open to all students through tryouts.
