First of all TUITION IS NOT FREE. I love the values they teach. Good teaching, teachers are awesome. We have a new principal Ms. Bennett, she is so wonderful available at any time of the day. But there is only two thing i DO NOT LIKE, they go from 7:40am to 5:00pm. The kids get all stress out because of that, too many hours to my opinion. Some of parents that agree with the schedule is because they use school as a day care! Hope they read this. the kids are still kids and need to relax after school and with this whole homework they leave to my girl is crazy. Second of all they ask for MONEY all the time such as, unnecessary uniforms, lotteries during the year, sales, hard for a single mom. Other than that would be the perfect school.

Kipp go above and beyond to reach out to kids that have little or no hope for a future to let them know that they are somebody, and they can be somebody if they want to be.
