This school has really helped my Grandson, he is more focused and Grades are good..


Posted November 30, 2012

KIPP Academy Nashville is a college preparatory charter school, with a challenging curriculum and high student expectations. The teachers and staff are an exceptional team that earnestly does whatever it takes to help children learn and prepare for success to and through college. In addition to academics, the students are encouraged to practice excellence, teamwork, humility, respect, and responsibility. As a parent, I am pleased to know that these principles are not only being taught at home, but are also being reinforced in the school that is empowering my child with knowledge. Her future is bright, and I'm excited about the doors that KIPP Academy Nashville is opening for her educationally, socially, and one day, economically. Thank you KIPP team and family, your hard work is sincerely appreciated.
