KIPP is not designed for elementary schools.
KIPP has limited evidence of effectiveness for middle/high school comprehensive school reform, according to the Comprehensive School Reform Center* (CSRQ).
KIPP provides underserved communities with free open enrollment schools that prepare students to succeed in high-level academics, including college, through use of rigorous instruction, additional time, extensive home assignments, and high standards.
For more on the review of KIPP, read the CSRQ review of middle/high school comprehensive school reform. Links to the CSRQ reviews are available on the BEE.
* The Comprehensive School Reform Quality Center (CSRQ)
The CSRQ was established at the American Institutes for Research through a grant from the US Department of Education and operated from 2003 to 2006. The CSRQ reviewed research on comprehensive school reform models. See www.csrq.org.
