I love it here, my child has been on the principals honor roll since she has been going there. I feel like her teachers are invested in her future and we work together to make sure she reaches her ability. She has been at Kipp since kindergarten and when August comes she will be going to the fourth grade
The teachers acknowledges when kids do the right thing on their daily behavior chart. Also when kids do wrong they have to fill out a paper that talks about what they did wrong, who they did it too, what characteristics they are displaying and how they can change it
I believe this school has changed a lot since it first opened up. This school has a lot of behavior issues although the staff try as best they can however still being located in an empowerment zone and servicing the same families makes them no different from surrounding schools. They do offer some great things such as there power hour to help bring kids up to speed on reading and math, however I believe the behavior policy need to be given a second look. Speaking from a parent of a child with out behavior issues I think it's unfair my child has to be punished or sit because other kids in her class have been misbaving. My child once liked school but after being here and getting frustrated with the other kids behavior I find her asking to stay home more and more . I find this frustrating to me and my child. Kipp harmony would be a better school if the kids behavior was more managed through parents being more involved.
I love KIPP Harmony, they work with my son daily to make him a better human being. The school has many children with different backgrounds. The school works with parents to better themselves also and gives them the chance to go back to school if they don't understand their children's homework.
