I am a 10th grader at KIPP Austin Collegiate and have attended KIPP since 5th grade. This is my 6th year at KIPP and I have not regretted attending KIPP ever! I am more than satisfied with the help provided by teachers and staff there. They show a love for teaching and helping students climb the mountain to college. I can't lie KIPP is hard work and it can be challenging, but it is nothing you can't handle. They prepare you for what you can expect in college and are there for you every step of the way. The most important and helpful thing about KIPP is the student-teacher relationships developed. They make sure that you understand that they are there to help, not only during school hours, but as well as after school hours. If any problems arise at school or at home they are there to listen and offer solutions to whatever problems you may have. I absolutely recommend KIPP for anybody whose goal is to get quality education you can't find in most public schools. In two more years I will be graduating from High School and hopefully attending The University of Texas at Austin!

I have been an educator for 18 years and have taught in all the various settings possible. Based on my experience and observations I chose KIPP (Austin) as my only choice for my childrens' education. I personally believe I couln't pay for a school (private) better that the KIPP model. Is it challenging (in that homework is given everyday), yes, but the amount of support is unpresidented. There are countless examples that I could share, but you will hopefully be wise and visit KIPP in Austin for yourself. I sincerely hope that all schools could follow KIPP (Austin) so that American student s will be prepared to compete with the global world. KIPP teaches more than academics, it teaches character, wellness, gratitude, community and offers students countless oppotunities to earn priveleges. Please visit their website, but most important visit their schools!

I was a student at KIPP from 6th to 8th grade and graduated from there with a lot of knowledge but also with a lot of other things like common sense (which I think is something that a lot of teenagers lack now-a-days). Personally I'm glad that i went to KIPP because not only am i doing great in school, I also know how to organize my self and attained other qualities that are needed in the future. A lot of my current friends (that didn't attend KIPP) had issues with time and organization the first two years of high school (i attend Liberal Arts and Science Academy). The stress of homework and academics at KIPP is a great way to show kids at a young age what it's like to BE in college. They show them a glimpse of life as a college student and as an adult.It's a great.

I use to go to this school, and the ammount of homework they give you is a lot! I sometimes stay up untill 11pm doing it. Not just that but the time the busses pick you up, is even worse. Its still a good school

The students do work very hard there at the school, but it's very over bearing. The teachers lack communication with one another, no matter how many times it's brought to their attention that the children are feeling over whelmed by the amounts of homework. The principal feel he's correct on everything. There parent/teacher meeting is pointless they very seldom listen to any of the parents inputs. The teach kids this is the way life is if they want to get to college, but I ask.....is this the type of school they attended to get them on the road to college?

My daughter is a sophomore(6th grade) at KACP and she is really excelling. Not only did you pass both TAKS tests but she received a 'commended' score in math! I really feel that this wouldn't have been possible in a public school in our neighborhood. I really hope they are able to add a highschool to the campus before her final year.

I would have to say that KIPP Austin College Prep is the home of the hardest working students in Austin,Texas. This school is on a 200-acre campus where they have a hiking trail and an extensive P.E. that not only teaches the students about running and things like that but it also gets the students informed about nutrition. Their students are already taking Algebra 1 in the 8th grade class and take the Algebra II Honors in the 9th grade. They have students in some of the most excellent high schools around Austin and around the country. They have students in Phillips Exeter Academy, Cate School, St. Stephen's Episcopal School, St. Andrew's Episcopal School and many more. KIPP Austin even plans to make their own high Shcool on their campus. This school could be opening up in 2008. KIPP ACP is an excellent school that I would recommend to anyone.

KIPP Austin College Prep is a Public Charter School focused on providing students grades 5-8 the quality education needed to prepare them for future learning. The academic program focus on how to study and what question should be asked to solve problems. KIPP Austin College Prep also focus on character building, intellectual habits, music, band, art, and social interaction with peers, parents, and teachers. The best program is the health curriculum. KIPP focuses on the wellness aspect of total health. Overall, the students at KIPP receive a high quality education full of positive motivation. With any school, there is always room for improvement. Parents remember that education starts at home and your involvement with your child's learning environment, rather it be at home, school, church, or other activities!

It is an excellent school. I highly recommed the school to parents who want their kids to be responsible and excell in the future. The curriculum is hard but the school has high expectations for the students. My daugher was very proud of herself when she received her first report card. She knew the work was hard and the days long, but she rose to the occasion and that put a huge grin on her face and mine. The encourage parent involvement and the kids repond to the parental involvement. Make a site visit to the school and the first thing that gets your attention is how well behaved the students are. They are big on personnal responsibility and there moto is 'No Excuses.' The teachers carry cell phones and can be reached in the evening to help your student with their homework. More schools schould be like KIPP!!!!

About the tests


In 2012-2013, the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) was used to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8; in writing in grades 4 and 7; in science in grades 5 and 8; in social studies in grade 8; and end-of-course assessments for English I, II, and II, Algebra I and II, biology and US History. STAAR is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Texas. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

The different student groups are identified by the Texas Education Agency; if there are a small number of students in a particular group, the state doesn't report data for that group.

Schools and districts rated under standard accountability procedures are designated as Exemplary, Recognized, Academically Acceptable or Academically Unacceptable. Schools and districts rated under alternative education accountability (AEA) procedures are designated as either AEA: Academically Acceptable or AEA: Academically Unacceptable.
