This is my son's 4th and final year at KIPP Charlotte. The teachers are excellent and dedicated to providing a challenging academic foundation for the students. The expectations are set high for the students as well as the teachers. The students have worked hard and truly understand how education is the key to their future success.

KIPP Charlotte truly has made a difference in my son s future. Now he see's how important his education is for his future. It was a tuff up hill battle for all of us, but as I look at my son now I see the man and leader he will become.

I would also like to state how the school does provide all school supplies and the cost of the end of the year trip; which is usually to GA, DC or NY. The school would be great If the other issues were addressed that are mentioned in my below in my below posting.

I bought into the Kipp promise.That was partly the reason I placed my children there, but little did I know Kipp Charlotte is very different than what the papers claim. It is an alternative educational placement but children that have disabilites are not welcomed quest. The school leader implents extreme consquences for minor infractions and even worse their disciplinary measures can be discribed as psychological abuse which isn't far fetch being that the school leader is a Psy major and not an educator. Children are pushed to the extreme in mental restraint and adults, most of whom say they are 'true and passionate educators' and 'hold children to higher standards' seem to enjoy fragile minds crumple. Study hall is a joke it's busy time and kids bring home more homework than Journalist'busy' My last words are Be Leary. D.Porter

Awesom, awesom! The teachers and staff are a unit, they care about the student and their education. And it shows.

KIPP teachers are great. They have an above and beyond attitude regarding all of the KIPP students! Can you believe it! This attitude is encouraged among the students as well, promoting hard work and community service. Driving 30 miles every morning to take my son to KIPP is more than worth it. Most of the students who have entered KIPP in its inaugural year have improved in their academics by leaps and bounds. I cannot wait to hear how the second year students have performed.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
