KIPP SHARP is committed to providing educational excellence, character, responsibility, and balanced growth to ensure that our students will discover and develop their talents and fulfill their best potential to succeed in college and the world beyond.
KIPP SHARP Prep offers a rigorous educational path focused on college and career readiness to prepare students for the world they will encounter. Throughout the school year, KIPPsters complete assessments to help us know how they are doing and how we can best help them expand their learning. Formal and informal assessments are used to inform instruction and ensure student needs are addressed. Families receive the results of assessments throughout the year and can discuss the results and student progress with teachers during regularly scheduled conferences.
KIPPsters can participate in clubs and organizations, including orchestra and dance.
