Who We are:
KIPP is a national network of free, open-enrollment, college-preparatory public schools with a track record of preparing students in underserved communities for success in college and in life.  There are currently over 200 KIPP schools serving nearly 70,000 students in 20 states and the District of Columbia.  KIPP Memphis Collegiate Schools (KMCS) is a part of the national KIPP Network.  This year KMCS will serve approximately 3,000 students in grades K-12 at seven different schools. 

What We Do and Why it Matters:
Nationwide, only 10% of students from low income communities graduate from college, compared to 84% of their more affluent peers. Preparing our students for successful and choice-filled lives of independence and impact drives the work of all KIPP school leaders, teachers, and staff. Nationally, KIPP alumni graduate from college at 4 times the national average, which is good, but not good enough. Our goal is for 75% of our alumni to graduate from college and be prepared to live a personally and financially satisfying life.

Mission:

The mission of KIPP Memphis is to create high performing schools in the Memphis community that will equip all students with the necessary academic and life skills needed to succeed through college and the competitive world beyond.

As an equal opportunity employer, we hire without consideration to race, religion, creed, color, national origin, age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, veteran status or disability.
