KIPP schools use social-emotional teacher practices and form partnerships with community-based groups.

“KIPP students are building confidence and social & emotional learning. I love that our students have authentic connections with each other, the staff, and they take that out to their families and communities.”

Michelle Verrochi, School Leader at KIPP Navigate 

restorative justice

All KIPP schools use restorative practices to help students learn how their actions impact others and reach resolutions that benefit the school community.

“Restorative justice works when communication, connection, and understanding is part of the process. At KIPP we try see the story behind the behavior and help students without being punitive.”

Gustavo Arámbula Jr., Culture Content Specialist at
KIPP San Jose Collegiate 

KIPP advisors support students as they select the college that is right for them and prepare for a career based on their interests and passions.

“I had amazing educators & college advisors at KIPP and it made me want to become a teacher. I chose to teach at KIPP because I want my students to have the academic support and encouragement that I did.”

Brianti Williams, KIPP teacher & alum

KIPP Northern California has developed a distance learning plan that supports all students. At the start of school closure we brought together online standards-based Math and English/Language Arts programs, independent reading, wellness and progress check-ins with teachers, and Google Classroom lessons and activities. Each of our schools distributed Chromebooks, online resource recommendations, and learning plans to all of our families. 

All schools will begin the year with 100% distance learning. Read more about our 2020 Reopening Plan.
