KIPP Paseo Prep will prepare all individuals to navigate a complex, changing world seizing every opportunity to grow into the truest representation of ourselves, in pursuit of our dreams.

We use our assets to positively impact our communities and we embrace all aspects of the journey, creating a more just world. At KIPP Paseo Prep, we have four core beliefs: our individual identity allows us to connect with one another and develop empathy for those similar to and different from ourselves. Working together in the service of others allows us to see ourselves in a larger context and reminds us to show gratitude and humility for the opportunities we earn and are given. We believe access to rigorous and relevant material provides windows and mirrors for students as they prepare for a lifelong journey of learning, growth, and purpose. Finally, our voice is our most profound tool for sharing our strengths, expressing our passions, and creating the future we dare to envision.
