In partnership with families and our community, KIPP NEXUS Primary School continues to thrive as we grow. Our name is an acronym for our values: Nurture, Empower, Xcel, Unite and Serve. Our teachers and staff consistently work to instill these values in students through modeling and explicitly teaching them. Our students gather weekly to learn a character lesson and celebrate the successes they have experienced both academically and culturally.

We believe in empowering our students through creating opportunities that allow them to lead with heart as they develop skills and knowledge allowing them to become transformative leaders in their community. We strive to make sure every student leaves NEXUS with a secure sense of self and confidence.

"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has." - Margaret Mead

Lindsay Hatcher’s passion for education began when she moved from her hometown in Florida to Houston as a 2010 Teach For America Corp Member. She completed two years in the Corp as a first grade teacher in the Houston Independent School District. She transitioned to the KIPP Team and Family as a first grade teacher at KIPP Explore Academy. Throughout her time at Explore, she served as a grade-level chair, continued as a dean of instruction and then was an assistant principal for two years. Most importantly, she learned what high expectations, an inclusive culture and passion can do to change students’ life trajectories. After five years at Explore, Lindsay joined Lisa McClinton in opening KIPP NEXUS Primary. She currently serves as School Leader at NEXUS Primary and cannot wait to see all of the amazing things that will happen as the NEXUS community grows. She truly believes that NEXUS is her family, and KIPP is her home away from home.
