Teach at a KIPP school in the Bay Area

KIPP Bay Area Schools

In the San Francisco Bay Area, five KIPP middle schools and two KIPP high schools are closing the achievement gap between low-income students and their more advantaged peers. A third school, KIPP San Francisco College Preparatory, will open with ninth grade in the summer of 2013. These tuition-free, college-preparatory schools are located in the underserved neighborhoods of Bayview Hunters Point and the Western Addition in San Francisco, East San Jose, San Lorenzo, and West Oakland. KIPP Bay Area Schools serves more than 2,600 students.

KIPP Across The Nation

KIPP, the Knowledge Is Power Program, is a national network of free, open-enrollment, college-preparatory public schools dedicated to preparing students in underserved communities for success in college and in life. By opening schools in the neighborhoods that need them most, KIPP schools are showing that something very different is possible for students in low-income neighborhoods. In 2012-13, 125 KIPP schools in 20 states and the District of Columbia are serving more than 35,000 students. Nationally, KIPP students are enrolling in college at a rate of more than 85 percent, which is double the national average for low-income students.

KIPP Bay Area Schools is hiring excellent teachers for the 2013-14 school year. Five of the schools serve students in grades 5-8, and our high schools in San Lorenzo and San Jose serve students in grades 9-12. KIPP San Francisco College Preparatory, our third high school, will open with ninth grade in 2013. Teaching positions are available in a variety of positions.
