KIPP CONNECT High School completes the growth of our Pre-K through 12th grade community school serving the neighborhoods of Gulfton and Sharpstown in southwest Houston. Our vision is to create a learning community fueled by personal connections and focused on college readiness. Our school will empower our students with three key beliefs: We BELONG here; we seize every opportunity to BECOME our best; and together, we PERSIST in the pursuit of excellence and justice – now and in the future. We create personal connections and a network of support through daily advisory meetings, and we offer a rigorous, college preparatory curriculum through an AP for All course sequence and a growing fine arts program.
