Our Insights

KIPP STAR Harlem College Prep Elementary School is a charter school in Harlem, serving grades Kindergarten through 4. This school shares the Terence D. Tolbert Educational Complex with two other schools. The school is affiliated with KIPP STAR Charter Middle School (5-8).

This school prepares students well to progress to the next grade and helps them improve their test scores, as compared to other schools with similar students. The school as a whole also performs well on test scores, as compared to other schools in the city.

Charter schools are tuition-free schools that operate independently of the city Department of Education, and because of this have a lot of leeway over things like discipline codes, school year/day lengths and teaching philosophies. Charter schools can range from super traditional and strict to super progressive with lots of student freedom. Be sure to ask questions when you visit. Most give priority to children who live in the school district in which the school is located and each school runs its own lottery and enrollment process. Check the school's own website for the application and due date listed under "contact" on this page.
