At KIPP Mosaic Primary, we embrace the idea that no one is fully formed and grow alongside one another every day. Motivated by curiosity and joy, we learn together in an environment that encourages beauty to be seen and connections to be made. We cultivate the academic, social, and emotional roots that enable students to take action, create the world they wish to see, and live choice-filled lives. These roots keep us proudly grounded in who we are, where we come from, and where we choose to go. 

Much like a mosaic, our school community finds its collective beauty and purpose in the unique strengths and passions of the individuals– students, families, community members and staff – that call it home. Students who begin their journey at KIPP Mosaic Primary will learn and grow in an environment that nurtures and supports them from pre-K3 through 12th grade.
