KIPP Impact Middle School 5

KIPP is a tremendous alternative to DCPS schools! Let me list the ways: -A "B" school in an area where all the other open-enrollment schools are D's and F's -Student academic growth is the second highest in the whole county -ALL students get to participate in band, and they get a free instrument! -Step team, basketball, baseball, flag football, cheerleading, and a ton of other electives are offered -the school day is longer to provide remediation to kids that need it -technology everywhere -caring staff that answers phone calls from students to help with homework We love it!

KIPP Impact Middle School 2

This particular KIPP school is not aligned with the KIPP Foundation visions. They have a serious problem with bully's as it is not deterred. Teachers are teaching children very controversial subjects, such as Lesbian, Gay, Transgender, and Bisexual current issues, allowing children to watch unrated violent documentaries without parental consent or knowledge, and aligning curriculum to African American issues. If you want your child to get a well rounded college preparatory education, this is not the school to go to. They say their students go to Paxon, Bolles, Stanton Prep, etc. The number of students that get into these schools is minimal (Maybe 4 out of 100 children). They talk a good game but fail to deliver. This school cannot keep its teachers around (over 10 teachers left in one year). Wish it were like the other KIPP schools. Our kids need the program.
