KIPP LA Schools (KIPP LA) is a nonprofit organization that operates free, open-enrollment, public charter schools focused on preparing students in under-resourced communities in Los Angeles for success in school, college, and life. We are part of the nationwide KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program) network of 183 schools in 20 states and Washington, DC serving 70,000 students.
KIPP LA currently operates thirteen schools in South and East Los Angeles, serving almost 5,000 students and 1,300 alumni. Eighty-nine percent of our students are from low-income families and are eligible for the federal free or reduced-price meals program, and 99 percent are African American or Latino. More than 95 percent of KIPP LA middle school students have graduated from high school, and more than 75 percent of college-aged alumni are persisting in college.
We operate six middle schools (grades 5-8) and seven elementary schools (grades TK-4). Students are accepted regardless of prior academic record or socioeconomic background. If we receive more applications than we have available spaces, students are admitted through a state-mandated lottery process. – less
