KIPP DC
September 18, 2008

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.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

More feedback

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

being able to see both sides of the fence. First, seeing what my children and other children can and have achieved because of KIPP DC. Seeing students make a 360 degree turn, from barely making it, to making it to the top of their class, accecpted into top High Schools and soon top Colleges. And secondly, as a Board Member, seeing & learning what it takes to give our children "THE BEST" education. Management of this non-profit Organization is phenomenal!!!

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

wonderful!!! They are patient, kind, supportive & genuine. They share their experiences from college to career.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

reach more students in other communities making the Nation's Capital #1 in Education. They would become the guide to quality education everyone would look toward. KIPP DC students would continue to be among the stars of the future.

Ways to make it better...

I were still a student.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

communities not willing not change and fundraising.

One thing I'd also say is that...

KIPP DC is #1, our students are "the Best"
