KIPP Bay Area Schools
In the San Francisco Bay Area, five KIPP middle schools and two KIPP high schools are closing the achievement gap between low-income students and their more advantaged peers. These tuition-free, college-preparatory schools are located in the under-served neighborhoods of Bayview Hunters Point and the Western Addition in San Francisco, East San Jose, San Lorenzo, and West Oakland. KIPP Bay Area Schools serves more than 2,000 students.
KIPP Across The Nation
The Knowledge is Power Program (KIPP) began in 1994 in Houston, Texas. Today, there are 82 KIPP schools in 19 states and Washington, D.C. serving more than 20,000 students. These free, open-enrollment, college-preparatory public schools in under-resourced communities help students develop the knowledge, skills, and character needed to succeed in college and the competitive world beyond.
At KIPP, there are no shortcuts: outstanding educators, more time in school, a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum, and a strong culture of achievement and support ensure that our students make significant academic gains and continue to excel in high school and college. While fewer than one in five low-income students typically attends college nationally, twice as many KIPP alumni nationwide have matriculated to colleges and universities.
Please become thoroughly familiar with www.kippbayarea.org before applying. Candidates must have at least one year of full time teaching experience; those experienced in working with under-served youth strongly preferred.
