KIPP One Academy (New) - KIPP Chicago Public Schools

Our Values & Demographics

We believe that our students, regardless of what part of the city they live in, deserve the same opportunities: world-class teaching, extra-curricular activities, and true preparation to take advantage of a choice-filled life. Three components guide our approach:

  • Top Academics | We are disruptors in our academic expectations and audacious goals. We believe that every moment matters and refuse to waste opportunities for learning.
  • Positive Environment | We provide a calm, joyful, and consistent school climate that builds character, celebrates achievement, and makes excellence a habit. We believe all moments, big or small, are opportunities for scholars and families to feel seen.
  • Professional Community | We are committed to our vision because we believe our scholars deserve a choice-filled future. This means we are intentional in our efforts, know our expectations, and work relentlessly to meet them. We go direct when we feel the tension.
