History & Mission
The vision of KIPP San Diego is to be a thriving region of stable schools filled with happy, successful young people on paths toward choice-filled, contented lives that positively impact our community. KIPP San Diego will be a leader in thinking about opportunity and access for youth in San Diego's urban communities and a model for collaboration in order to dramatically change life outcomes.
KIPP San Diego is part of the national network of free, open-enrollment, college preparatory public charter schools dedicated to preparing all students for success in college and life. San Diego's KIPPsters are hard-working, enthusiastic, resilient and focused; they are also mostly low-income, learners of English, new Americans and performing far below grade level when they arrive at our door. We are obsessed with the idea that KIPP San Diego will be a proof point for the idea that KIPPsters are innovative, creative, engaged, passionate and valuable contributors to our community.
KIPP San Diego schools keep promises to students and are building a better tomorrow through our Design Principles: Team and Family, Meaningful Work and Voice.
