Role Spotlight : Assistant Principal 

We believe that Assistant Principals are our future school leaders. We actively develop Assistant Principals for School Leadership and feel the Assistant Principal should consider themselves as an apprentice to the School Leader and gradually build capacity to lead a KIPP school. Assistant Principals are expected to lead both instruction and school culture, while developing the skills of the school’s emerging leaders. Apply online
