Promise & Commitment
KIPP Metro Atlanta Schools is a network of public charter schools dedicated to the belief that all children can learn and achieve at high levels. Since founding our first middle schools in 2003, KIPP Metro Atlanta Schools has been united around one goal: to help students develop the strength of character and academic abilities needed to succeed in life—and in so doing, to prove what is possible in public education.
KIPP Metro Atlanta Schools continues to keep our promise to our students and community. We currently educate more than 3,800 students across nine schools—four elementary schools, four middle schools, and one high school—and over 1000 alumni in the KIPP Through College program. Our free public charter schools are open to all students and are located in the educationally underserved neighborhoods of West End, Southeast Atlanta, and East Point. Our schools enroll all students, regardless of prior academic record, conduct, or socioeconomic background. If there are more interested students and families than space allows, a lottery is conducted for admission each spring.
KIPP Metro Atlanta Schools offers students and families a robust learning environment in which students develop the academic skills, scholarly habits, and character traits they need to succeed in college and in life.
