Why KIPP Colorado?
To and Through College
KIPP students, families, teachers, and school leaders are aligned in a common mission: getting students to and through college. We all work together to achieve this common goal.
Innovation & More Time
At KIPP, there is more time in the day and more days in the year for rich learning experiences, character instruction, and field lessons. KIPP Colorado gives students and teachers more time to achieve their goals. And with that time, KIPP teachers develop innovative lessons that focus on what’s important: their students and their students' success.
We Value Teachers
We value teachers as professionals, and encourage them to be leaders, to collaborate, and to constantly improve in their craft. We prioritize professional development at KIPP by providing teachers access to weekly professional development as well as regular instructional coaching and time for collaboration with other teachers. We firmly believe that teachers are the keepers of our mission, and we treat them as such.
Team & Family
At KIPP, our teachers are all “on the same page.” KIPP professionals collaborate to deliver strong instruction and a unified culture-- not only within their building, but also across state lines through retreats, summits, and our online sharing platform, KIPP Share. At KIPP, we don’t teach alone. We teach with one another, as part of a team.
Academics & Character
At KIPP, we believe in a balanced approach. We believe that for KIPPsters to truly succeed in college and in life, they will need character strengths such as grit, tenacity, zest, and optimism in addition to a rich academic curriculum. We focus on both.
