KIPP Boston middle school


KIPP Academy Boston Middle School will be the third KIPP school in the KIPP Massachusetts region and the first in the city of Boston. We will be opening in Fall 2012 with a founding class of 72 fifth graders, focusing on the Mattapan and Dorchester neighborhoods. We are a free, open enrollment public charter school, open to students living in Boston.

Our mission is to create an environment where the students of Boston, MA will develop the academic skills, intellectual habits, and character traits necessary to maximize their potential in high school, college, and the world beyond.

If your child is currently in 4th grade (during the 2011-2012 school year), and lives in the city of Boston, he/she is eligible to apply for the 5th grade lottery, which will be held in March 2012. You may download the application HERE.
