A School and a Community

At KIPP Texas, our students, families, teachers, and staff create a community we call Team & Family. Through this community, our students are supported in every step of their education journey, including college, career, and beyond!

The most valuable educational experience for any student comes from caring for the “whole child” – their academics, their well-being, their unique gifts, their joy, their safety, their entire family, and experiences. We are focused on creating schools where students feel brave, have a strong sense of belonging, and feel prepared to pursue post-secondary success.

It was more than just the teachers and better curriculum, it was actual real world experiences that I was getting at KIPP Texas that I would have never gotten at some of the public schools that I was zoned to.
