The school over all look is great but the staff not so much whenever I go in to ask a question they're as rude as can be, I mean they are there to provide information but the way they answer u makes u feel like your ignorant and I don't think that's good for the name of the school

This is a great school BUT it is nearly impossible to get accepted to this school. The school has a VERY limited amount of space,about 3 spots vs. about 100 applicants or more depending on the grade,In my opinion it's a waste of time,there are other schools that meet the same standards,it just takes a little research ,which is what I did. I hope this helps.

Kipp Raices Academy is a wonderful school. I have two children in this school and they love it. The teacher parent communication is great. The parents have the opportunity to volunteer in the classrooms, it is encouraged which I think is great. The teachers are wonderful they encourage the students to do better. I always recommending Kipp Raices to other parents. Academically Kipp Raices surpasses other elementary schools in LA. I am proud my children are Kipp Raices Academy students.

Kipp Raices is an excellent school. I am a new parent to Kipp and have seen a tremendoes growth on my childrens' cognitive, social and emotioanal development within the last three months. My children are motivated to go to school on a daily basis due to the wonderful learning environment that the faculty and staff offer all children. In addition to this, parents are always welcomed since the minute that we walk into the school as Ms. Young (principal), Ms. Wiener or Mr. Brackman greet students by hand right as they are walking in. Allowing us to recognize that each student is valued independently and not just as another child walking into the school setting.

So far so good. We where looking for an alternative from L.A.U.S.D. Our Kinder gardener enjoys it never complains.There expectations from the students may seem a bit much,but we believe it will payoff for our sons education.

Great school! I am happy I chose KIPP Raices as my daughter's first school. They have P.E., Art, and Computer classes as part of their everyday curriculum. The only thing I dislike is parent involvement (lack there of), I really wish more parents showed up to the afterschool meetings, and became involved in school activities.

I believe Kipp Raices is an excellent school. Students are all encouraged and taught with college in mind. School just started and doesn't yet have all grades. Excellence, integrity, love and honor is their motto.
