IPP LA currently operates eleven schools in South and East Los Angeles, serving over 4,000 students and alumni. Eighty-nine percent of our students are from low-income families and are eligible for the federal free or reduced-price meals program, and 99 percent are African American or Latino. More than 95 percent of KIPP LA middle school students have graduated from high school, and more than 75 percent of college-aged alumni are persisting in college.
We operate six middle schools (grades 5-8) and five elementary schools (grades K-4). Students are accepted regardless of prior academic record or socioeconomic background. We believe that ALL students, regardless of their zip codes or demographics, will learn and achieve if given the right opportunities and support. We are committed to serving the students who need us most and refuse to accept anything less than an excellent college-preparatory education for our students.
