About Us

In 2014, we opened our doors at KIPP East Central Primary to 100 kindergarten students and their families. Four years later, we are now a pre-kindergarten through fourth-grade school, growing to be a full pre-kindergarten through eighth grade. Our vision is to offer a truly excellent education for families in New Orleans East, an area of New Orleans that has historically not had first-class options. We are part of our community and truly a neighborhood school, with 80 percent of KECP scholars residing in New Orleans East.
