Academics

Our Approach

 
At KECP we believe in not only teaching our students the academic skills they will need for college and beyond, but also the values and habits they will need for a life of happiness and success. We strive to instill the intellect, character, and habits necessary to graduate from college and positively shape our community and our world. We greet students with hugs and high fives, get to know them personally, and work hard to build positive relationships and to create a loving, structured, and safe environment to ensure the success of our scholars.
 

We work hard to create a loving, structured, and safe environment. We greet students with hugs and high fives, get to know them personally, and work hard to build positive relationships. The structures we have in place allow us to run efficient and safe classrooms where kids feel motivated and successful. In every situation, we are thinking about our students as our own kids and family: What would I want if this was my daughter, or my cousin?

We promise that we will always do our best to support your child or children to and through college.  While college may seem a long way off, we believe it is our shared responsibility to ensure that our students are set up with the knowledge, skills, character, and habits necessary to graduate from college and positively shape our community and our world.  We recognize that reaching this goal will take a tremendous amount of teamwork on the part of our families, our staff, and our students, and we appreciate your support of the school.

One of our guiding principles is that we work as a team and are accountable for all kids, and you feel this in the building. Teachers collaborate to solve problems and do what’s best for kids.

Our team is truly exceptional. Teachers collaborate with one another and work to support the needs of all of our students. We consist of a team of true professionals that love this work and care deeply about their kids’ success.

We focus on small group academic instruction, with opportunities for both remediation and extension. We pride ourselves on our accelerated programs and our high reading and math groups.

It is the mission of KIPP East to grow — in each and every one of our students — the character, intellect, and habits necessary to graduate from college and positively shape our community and our world.

At KECP we believe in not only teaching our students the academic skills they will need for college and beyond, but also the values and habits they will need for a life of happiness and success.
