About KIPP San Diego
The vision of KIPP San Diego is to be a thriving region of stable schools filled with happy, successful young people on paths toward choice-filled, contented lives that positively impact our community. KIPP San Diego will be a leader in thinking about opportunity and access for underrepresented youth in San Diego and a model for collaboration in order to dramatically change life outcomes.
KIPP San Diego currently operates one school: KIPP Adelante Preparatory Academy which will serve as the flagship for the region as it develops in the coming years to ensure that low income families in San Diego have high quality options for school.
The mission of KIPP Adelante Preparatory Academy is to ensure that our students develop the academic skills, intellectual habits, and character traits needed to succeed in top quality high schools, colleges, and the competitive world beyond. We will be a proof-point that schools with high concentrations of students that live in low-income communities are actually buildings filled with innovative, creative, engaged, passionate and valuable contributors to our community. Through longer school days and an extended school year with extraordinarily dedicated and passionate teachers, our students improve and succeed. 95% of KIPP Adelante's alumni have graduated from high school. 60% of those have gone on to college. We are focused on raising that number.
KIPP Adelante is in the midst of a rebirth. With a deep belief that students social-emotional health is foundational to success in life, we are committing to Restorative Practices and Advisory Circles.
Our instructional focus is shifting to one that puts the students in the center and the heavy lifting on them. Those with experience with Project Based Learning and authentic work products are strongly encouraged to apply. Success in using data to monitor students proficiency in basic skills in order to access and benefit from real-world learning experiences is essential.
