KIPP was born 20 years ago in the United States as a national network of free public schools for disadvantaged communities.
This Educational System has as its principle an alliance between parents, students and teachers who put learning first, which ensures that each one will do what is necessary to help the student learn.
How does it work? The model requires parents to make a COMMITMENT to the education of their children.
We belong to The 1 World Network of Schools that was born in 2014 to unite all KIPP-inspired schools outside the United States.
Transforming the world inspired by the KIPP model.
