KIPP Academy Lynn is a great school. The teachers are nice, and the rules are fair. The only thing I don't like is that there are many bullies at this school. But unlike most staff at other schools, if you talk to them about it, they WILL help. There's even a school therapist- She is amazing and is like a second mom. KIPP has a fun way of learning, too- we use songs to memorize the multiplication tables! And we even have a lot of field trips- At least one field lesson each year, and every quarter if you get good grades and behave yourself you can go on a fun trip, like skiing or to the movies. Sometimes there are rumors about the school, like lying about test scores and selecting kids that go there. Those are completely false. KIPP is an amazing school, and it's an honor to go there.
The teachers at KIPP are enthusiastic, committed and dedicated to their students. They are on call until 9pm for homework help. They have open communication with the parents. Often they just call to give me an update. The academics are challenging. My child, who never spent more than 15 minutes on her homework, typically has an hour's worth of homework daily (including week ends).
