At KIPP Chicago we are forward looking. We improve ourselves continuously. We push our students unceasingly. We support our alumni perpetually.

Since 2009—KIPP Chicago has grown from one school serving 320 students to six schools serving nearly 3,000 students and 1,000 alumni. By 2021 we will be serving 4,000 students across eight campuses on the South and West Sides.

KIPP Chicago is the leading network of schools in Chicago, demonstrated by:
the achievements of our students and alumni, including the highest performing schools in each of our neighborhoods
consistent, steady, transformative growth
lasting partnerships with the communities, the city and the philanthropic community

KIPP Chicago is the highest performing K-8 charter network in Chicago.

According to CPS’s accountability framework for all schools—the School Quality Ratings Policy—KIPP Chicago is the highest ranked elementary and middle charter school network in Chicago—a distinction held for over three years


KIPP One is the highest rated public school (out of 436) in Chicago

KIPP Academy and KIPP Bloom are in the 8th percentile


I am thrilled that the highest performing public school in all of Chicago is not in Lincoln Park, not in Hyde Park, not in Lake View . . . . it is in on Chicago’s West Side. KIPP One’s exemplary performance demonstrates how much potential we have distributed across the city.

KIPP Chicago schools are the highest rated  public schools in each the communities they are located–Austin, North Lawndale, and Humboldt Park on the West Side and Englewood on the Southside. We consequently provide our families with a high quality, college preparatory school in the communities in which they reside.

 

KIPP Chicago is the only network of schools that are rated a SQRP Level 1 (KIPP Ascend) or Level 1+ (KIPP Academy, KIPP Bloom, and KIPP One) by Chicago Public Schools. Our average SQRP school also leads are networks of charter public schools in Chicago.

Similarly,KIPP Chicago scores higher than averages for all public schools (both district-managed and charter-managed public schools), schools in our neighborhoods, and schools that serve student populations similar to ours.

We keep the promise of “to and through college.“

KIPP Chicago 8th grade alumni graduate college at more than the national rate (regardless of income or demographics), 2x the CPS rate, (again regardless of income or demographics) and 4x the rate of students from low-income communities. Our commitment to incoming kindergartners is for almost 20 years—from early childhood to college graduation.
