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. These tuition-free, college-preparatory schools are located in the under-served 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 2,500 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 2011-12, 109 KIPP schools in 20 states and the District of Columbia are serving more than 32,000 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.
