Awesome, Amazing & Fantastic!!!!! As a life time ward 7 resident/parent I found it extremely hard to find high achieving, quality public schools in that area. After hearing, reading and visiting KIPP DC I knew it was the place for my kids. I am a proud parent of a 6th grader and an alumni, now attending Sidwell Friends. Everyone, teachers, principles and staff work hard to give our kids quality education. In the end, our children thrive, they set goals and acheive them. KIPP DC equips our children with the necessary tools to go above & beyond what our society/community has set. Every student is individually important to KIPP DC. When students win, KIPP DC wins and Parents are extremely proud and thankful.
