Anti-Racism in Action
Black Students Thriving Initiative
Our commitment to anti-racism gave rise to our Black Students Thriving Initiative. We are investing deeply to ensure our schools are building inclusive cultures, our teachers are trained in healing-centered practices, and our students have access to the mental health supports they need in school, in order to ensure all of our students, particularly our Black students, thrive.
Our Black Students Are Staying With Us
Our Black students are staying with us at higher rates. This year alone there was a 10% increase in the number of Black students who returned to KIPP.
Academic Bright Spots
We have seen gains among our Black students in elementary, middle, and high school.
