Nearly all graduates go to college
Very few seats for new 9th graders
KIPP NYC College Prep Program is designed for graduates of KIPP middle schools. The school has a high graduation rate and nearly all the graduates go to college, including Duke, Barnard, Georgetown and CUNY and SUNY campuses, according to The New York Post.
“There is an extreme amount of dedication here,” a graduating senior told The Post. “There are teachers who even if they were paid nothing they would still come and still teach because they genuinely care how our lives will turn out.”
Opened in temporary quarters in 2009, KIPP moved to a new building in 2013.
NOTE: Data for the students at this high school can be found in the profiles of the network's middle schools: KIPP Infinity, KIPP Academy, KIPP S.T.A.R., KIPP AMP.
Admission: Priority to graduates of KIPP middle schools. A lottery is held for 9th and 10th grade only, and there are very few seats available for new high school students. (Clara Hemphill, news reports, August 2018)
