No problems. They do a wonderful job. Teachers are devoted and discipline is much better.

Why would a teacher scream shut up unless the kids won't shut up??????? If they won't shut up then who's just is it to shut them up so learning can take place????

When you get to discriminate by Picking the best students and leaving the dumb ones out you usually don't have discipline problems.

They don't pick anyone but they expect you to perform. Bad apples either straighten out as they see how real school and teaching should be or they drop out.

It is not a school that baby sits uninterested students or parents. That's what I like about it.

I pulled my daughter out of kipp. It lacks extracurricular activities. I appreciate what they are trying to, but right now it's just not for us..

It also to me is where a child need close supervision and they have more time on hand to provide that attention to those kids. Also the parents that placed them there don't want there child to be placed in a public district because there guidelines they want be able to deal with because of some of there attention that is required and teacher is not going tolerate it. You know your child have those issues and whether they be holla at school or home. Your child is no different. Other than that I think it a good school. Whether Kipp or your public school main it offers what is required to equip a child for future to be competed with common core and new technology to be able to conquer there dream. I know it being offer in public school district.

I was in there the other day and the teachers were screaming at the kids. The school puts on a good show but if you really take a look behind the curtain its a different story. They have a habit of losing students personal information and then asking you to resubmit it. The teachers are very young , most right out of college , coming from the "Teach For America " program. They have no experience or training in formal education before coming here. I do not think any of them have a traditional college degree in education. They are working off their minors trying to get the non-traditional teaching certificates. I was told that the school could not get teachers to come here. The teachers do not communicate well between each other concerning the children. It is not the place i thought it would be when I enrolled my child there. There are some nice teachers there but I think they are in over their heads. The school has a high turnover rate for teachers.
