KIPP Sunnyside High School has three core values that govern our thoughts, words and actions. Scholarship: We excel academically to open doors for our futures and become more effective activists and advocates for ourselves and our communities. Courage: We exercise sound judgement and take the best course of action regardless of time, place, or circumstance. Community: We take individual responsibility for our actions and work for the collective success of our school, family, and neighborhood.
