Kipp DC is a network of high-performing, Public, college-preparatory Charter Schools in Washington, d.c.DC.c., which serves the city's under-resourced communities. At Kipp DC, there are no shortcuts. Outstanding educators, more time in school, a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum, and a strong culture of achievement and support help our students make significant academic gains and continue to excel in high school and college.kipp DC students are some of the hardest working young people in d.c.DC.c., spending approximately 30% more time in school than traditional students with an extended school day, week, and year. In addition to core subjects like math and reading, the school day includes music, foreign language, p.e., and character education. Each school leader and teacher is given the "power to lead and to do whatever is necessary to achieve Kipp DC's goals and to meet each student's needs. Subsequently, lessons are differentiated through both blended learning opportunities and targeted, small group instruction. Additional enrichment opportunities are available after school and during Kipp DC's saturday school, including sports, dance, drama, visual art, concert orchestra, drum line, chess, robotics, and publishing.our standardized test results continue to illustrate the impact of additional learning time, high-quality teaching, and a culture of achievement and success. Most importantly, they reveal that Kipp DC is closing the achievement gap that exists between white/non-hispanic students and african american students at Public and Public Charter Schools in d.cDC.c. for more than a decade, students at Kipp DC Schools have been among the highest performing in the district, often earning the top spot in proficiency in math and reading on the DC comprehensive assessment. In order to better support Kipp DC students in high school and college, Kipp DC created the Kipp through college program (ktc). Ktc provides Kipp DC alumni with the tools and support needed to attain a college degree and succeed in the competitive workforce. The ktc team works with alumni from seventh grade through to their senior year of college to ensure that they stay on the path to graduation and a life filled with choice and opportunity. Perhaps the most important indicators of Kipp DC's impact are the rates at which our alumni are graduating from high school, matriculating to college, and earning degrees. Kipp DC knows that teacher quality is a key factor when it comes to providing an exceptional education to students of all backgrounds. To address this critical need, Kipp DC founded the capital teaching residency (ctr) in partnership with e.l. haynes Public Charter school. Ctr is a year-long teacher training residency designed to increase the number of highly effective teachers in the district of columbia. Just as medical residents train with experienced doctors in teaching hospitals, ctr residents train and learn alongside an excellent teacher working within a high-performing Charter school. The program is highly selective to ensure that the candidates with the greatest potential of success are chosen and all residents commit to teaching in d.cDC.c. for a minimum of two years after completing the program.
