KIPP DC educates and supports students in the District of Columbia who have limited access to quality educational options. We approach our work with a set of core beliefs about how we can achieve our mission. We believe students are worthy of exceptionally talented and diverse teachers and leaders who will guide them through school, college, and careers. We believe we must partner with families to provide students an ecosystem of supports in order to optimize their educational experience. We believe students deserve a model school system that plays an important leadership role in D.C. and the national education community.
