A lot of schools loses things, a lot of different teachers from other schools, yell at kids. There is no perfect school. It's about what fit your child. See the problem today is too many parents,NOT all but some. Thinks learning starts at school, and ends at school. It is the parents responsibility to teach at home also.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.
The school is great I love it. If you child is behind they work to get tat child to the level they r to b on. But it's takes not just teachers parents to be involved. And stop looking for a perfect school. Because there is no perfect school. So instead of down grading KIPP. ask yourself do u take out at least two hours a day to review and help your child with homework or just review what they went over in school. Are you helping to enforce rules.?
