this school sucks because their idea of making us climb to college is terrible, only because we stay longer in school doesnt mean we get smarter, my cousin who goes to reagan gets better grades than i do and were on the same grade and their getting teached the same thing their teaching in kipp. I hope they atleast minimise the amount of hours in school like only 8 hours and maybe add programs for after school choices

This school is truly exemplary. After having kids in both AISD and private schools, this has been the best school system I have seen. The teachers really care about the students success and the students are motivated. When the students are not motivated the teachers care enough to motivate them.

Its a really really good school... The teachers actually do care about what you are learning and they want to know if you are understanding what they are teaching us.

This is the first year for KAC, and they are doing ok on year one. The homework load is a little high for the average student. This *could* be manageable but the kids are in school from 7:30 until 5p, so by the time the kids get home and finish their homework it is already 9 or 10pm. I believe the school day is way too long and causes the kids to get really burned out. My daughter and some of her friends have resorted to just getting all the homework *done* in the last 3 months. Many of the teachers are pretty good for a first-year school. KAC does have a few classes where more than 1/2 the students are getting a C or lower. KAC pushes on the students but I suspect the teachers are the issue. A good school if your kid does not burn out.

Kipp has given my kid hope to keep on learning for her future. She now speaks of going to collage.
