A place where teachers are set up for burnout
Teacher (Current Employee) –  Houston, TXDecember 6, 2016
KIPP Prides itself on serving low-income students and their families. However, the overemphasis on test scores and the use of the extended school day is exhausting to both teachers and students. Teachers are treated with little respect for their craft and made to work extensive hours that almost certainly lead to burnout and physical exhaustion. This is not a healthy work environment nor is it a place educators will be successful beyond two years.
Pros
KIPP has a noble mission
Cons
10-hour workdays, over reliance on test scores, lack of respect for teachers' lives

Research and Evaluation Intern (Former Employee) –  San Francisco, CAFebruary 15, 2013
I loved the office atmosphere! Everyone truly enjoyed each other and worked hard every day, so they could play hard when they were done. They were committed to their mission and believed in doing all they could to help each other meet goals and exceed expectations.
