Implementing personalized learning in grades K-8: Part of KIPP’s mission is to provide clearly defined and measurable high expectations for academic achievement and conduct that creates and reinforces a culture of achievement and support. Every student is different and learning is personalized based on a student’s needs, skills, and interests.

Generating excitement about computer science: In December 2015, KIPP DC College Preparatory students held their first annual “Pitch Fest,” where teams of students in the school’s Web Development course pitched ideas for 10 different apps before a team of judges, including community members and industry experts from firms such as Accenture. Beginning in school year 2016-17, KIPP DC high school students will have the opportunity to earn Advanced Placement (AP) college credit for computer science. This is the first time that KIPP DC will offer AP credits in this subject area.

Standardizing STEM curriculum across elementary schools: KIPP DC is developing rigorous standards across all elementary schools, so that students are fully prepared for middle school learning.
