EXCELLENT! My son has been a Kipster since the 5th grade, recently ending his 9th grade school year and I am anxiously awaiting the beginning of the 10th grade school year to see how KIPP DC College Preparatory is going to challenge us! KIPP has enriched not only my son but I as well; their stance on parent, teacher, and child goes beyond education. I have been overwhelmed and at times brought to tears because of the care and compassion that KIPPs staff exemplifies with not only my son, but all its students. My son never received this type of treatment and education in private school. For those parents who are not fortunate enough to have their child/children be about of the KIPP Organization, I say continue to try don t give up. Anything worth having is worth fighting for! KIPP is a culture, a way of life for which not only our children will build principles but the parents as well. Although I was always a great mother, it has taught me to be a better parent. The Principal, Ms. Borden, staff and teachers such as: Ms. Welch, Ms. Murphy, Ms. Graham, Ms. D, Mr. Stuckey, and Coach Leonard, you get all the kudos and accolades. I sincerely thank you for a job well done!
