KIPP Memphis Collegiate Schools formerly KIPP DIAMOND Academy had an extremely high teacher turn over rate. This school year about half of the middle school teacher at KMCM left before the end of the first semester. In addition to teachers leaving the principal left during Thanksgiving break. High teacher turn over was also seen at their high school When questioned by parents, the executive director gave very vague answers. Now it's the end of the year and my child has informed me that more teachers & staff will not return. Some of the teachers & staff included have been with the school for over 4 years. This is not the KIPP school my children first entered in the 5th grade. There is no more school pride. Value were reinforced at KIPP, I don't see that this year, with the newer teachers and students. KIPP can improve they go back to it's old values. The executive director should determine if he is really the problem.
