KIPP Colegiate High School
2005 Via Barrett
KIPP King Collegiate High School opened in the fall of 2007 as the first KIPP high school on the west coast with the aim of establishing the gold standard for providing a superior, college preparatory, public high school education in a low-income community. Every student at KIPP King takes AP courses. Throughout the course of high school, all students meet the California A-G requirements and thus qualify to apply to UC schools. Upon graduation, all students will have the wisdom, habits of mind, and commitment of heart to be change agents in the communities they serve.
The mission of KIPP King Collegiate is to prepare students to live inspired and ethical lives by developing within them extraordinary academic skills, a life-long passion for learning, and the resolve to change their own lives and the world around them.
At KIPP, all teachers and school leaders nationwide share the same goal: helping every student persevere to and through college. All KIPP schools share a core set of operating principles known as the Five Pillars. As our network has grown, and leaders across the country have committed to building high-quality schools, we have reflected on what makes a great system of schools. We believe any high-performing system of schools requires several integrated elements.
