WHO WE ARE

KIPP Memphis is part of KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program), a national network of free, open-enrollment, public schools that are successful in helping students from educationally underserved communities develop the knowledge, skills, character, and habits needed to succeed in college and the competitive world beyond.  There are currently 224 KIPP schools serving nearly 100,000 students.  Today, KIPP Memphis serves over 2,800 students in our seven schools in Memphis and almost 800 alumni on their journeys to and through college with our KIPP Through College Program.

WHAT WE DO & 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.

OUR SCHOOLS

KIPP Memphis serves over 2,800 students in grades K-12, at seven schools in north and south Memphis. Each of our elementary schools’ partner with Porter-Leath to provide a high-quality pre-K instructional experience for our communities.

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.
