Building a better tomorrow for students and families in classrooms, schools, and communities is only possible if we know exactly how we are doing. Data helps us understand our true impact, what is working, and what needs to be improved. By highlighting our students’ achievements, we can help them climb the mountain to and through college. Our Six Essential Questions provide a yardstick by which to measure our progress, keep us focused as we grow, and guide us to help our students’ futures shine brighter.
The KIPP Report Card is a direct reflection of our commitment to performance transparency and accountability for student results and achievement in our schools. We are determined to find out what’s working and not working for our students and families. The numbers tell much of that story. By looking at our data, we can help sustain what makes our schools thrive, while also understanding our challenges so that we can meet them head-on.
This report shares the college outcomes for our earliest KIPP students. It also examines our early lessons learned in supporting KIPP students through college, and shares the ways we are addressing the challenges of college completion.
With support from The Atlantic Philanthropies, the Laura and John Arnold Foundation, and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, KIPP recently released the National Evaluation of KIPP Middle Schools, a five-year longitudinal study conducted by national policy research firm Mathematica.
To understand our performance more deeply and provide transparency to our supporters, KIPP has been the subject of periodic reports.
KIPP is committed to equal treatment for all individuals. KIPP does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, disability, age, religion, sexual orientation, or national or ethnic origin.
