The mission of KIPP SHINE Prep is to nurture and strengthen students’ creativity, knowledge, character, and thinking skills, preparing them to excel academically and socially in college, life, and beyond.
KIPP SHINE Prep strives for high academic achievement for all our KIPPsters. Our KIPPsters receive rigorous classroom instruction that allows students to be challenged and supported. We also offer educational support for KIPPsters, including emerging bilingual interventionists, reading and math interventionists, and acceleration academies.
KIPPsters can participate in clubs and organizations, including cheerleading, dance, soccer, and basketball.
