As a teacher, I would not recommend this school. The discipline policies are developmentally inappropriate. The administration as a whole doesn't have enough experience and lacks perspective since they have only known bad schools. The principal doesn't understand instruction or students well. He operates in crisis mode more often than not. While there are some good teachers, the school will likely continue to struggle under the current leadership.

KIPP Northstar does not live up to what I have heard of other KIPP schools. Teachers yell at students - a lot. Students aren't taught at the right level - low students have trouble and high students are bored. There aren't many times for students to get to know their classmates - from the moment they enter the school they do class work and talking isn't allowed during lunch. Lots of students leave. Teachers leave in the middle of the year and no one knows why. The school is not getting students ready for college even though that is what they say.

My school is KIPP: Stand Academy. I believe that it is a good school because the teachers work so hard to educate the students. Some of the kids have difficult lives, but that doesn't matter at KIPP, they still try to help. Every year the school gets better. If we keep trying, one day we will have a very good school. I am glad that I work at KIPP because the staff really does believe in the students.

After graduating from the school in 8th grade in 2012 i began to realize how good the education was and the respect that the teachers and students shared with each-other. It is a surely great school.
