1039-1063 Garden Street, East Palo Alto, CA

KIPP Esperanza opened in August 2020 with 105 enrolled 9th graders. KIPP Public Schools Northern California is proposing to purchase the property and operate a high school growing up to 650 students in grades 9-12 over a 4-year period. There were 16 Full Time Employees when the school opened and 44 upon full enrollment. Four additional classrooms (approximately 4,000 square feet) might be added at a later date.

This location has been a school site since 2010. KIPP will occupy the existing structure, and no new permanent structures will be built on the property.

The school will operate from 7:30 AM – 6:00 PM with occasional evening and weekend meetings and sessions. There will be outdoor activities throughout the day.

There will be 52 on-site parking spaces. Student drop off and pick up path of travel is detailed on the site plan that is part of this submittal.
