What makes KIPP Massachusetts unique?
Professional Educators with the Power to Lead
At KIPP Massachusetts, we recognize that strong teachers and school leaders are two of the most important factors in our kids’ success. We look for teachers who have proven results with students and who approach the profession as an endless opportunity not only to develop students but also to develop themselves.
Commitment to Professional Development
We know that the work of educators is complex and challenging, and we approach professional development of our teachers and leaders with the utmost intentionality both locally and through the resources of our national organization. Every KIPP MA teacher is assigned a teaching coach who is either a school leader or a veteran teacher. The coach provides regular observation in the classroom, individual feedback and support. Additionally, many of our teachers participate in KIPP School Leadership Programs (KSLP), which provide not only ongoing professional development but also an opportunity for teachers and leaders to engage with their colleagues at other KIPP schools throughout the nation.
Innovation and More Time
We want our teachers and leaders to make decisions based on the needs of our students. There is no mandated regional curriculum at KIPP MA; we encourage innovation and creativity within our schools and classrooms, and provide the coaching and support to make that possible. At KIPP, there is more time in the day for rich learning experiences, character instruction, and field lessons. With more time, our teachers can also collaborate and constantly be supported by peers who share their commitment to constant growth, improvement, and student outcomes.
Sharing and Collaboration
Our teachers collaborate to deliver strong instruction and a unified culture—not only within their buildings but across the region and across state lines through retreats, summits, and our online sharing platform, KIPP Share. At KIPP, we teach as part of a team of more than 2,000 teachers coast to coast, united in the same mission.
Character and Academics
KIPP’s longstanding motto—“Work Hard. Be Nice.”—isn’t just a tagline. Since the beginning, we’ve believed in a balanced approach to education: hard work and a rigorous academic curriculum balanced with the development of the character strengths needed to succeed in college and in life: grit, self-control, social intelligence, gratitude, optimism, zest and curiosity.
To and Through College
While each KIPP school is unique, all are united in a common mission: to support all KIPPsters to and through college. We’re raising the bar for the definition of success for children in low-income communities: it’s not just getting to college, but rather, seeing them all the way through to the day they graduate from college and become world-changing citizens.
