About KIPP Delta Public Schools
KIPP Delta Public Schools was founded in 2002 when we opened our doors to 65 fifth grade students in Helena, Arkansas. Our ultimate goal was to graduate students with the strength of character and academic abilities needed to succeed in life – and in so doing, prove what is possible in public education. We promised to do whatever was necessary to help our students succeed. KIPP Delta is still making – and keeping – the same promise today. We now lead five schools across the Arkansas Delta serving over 1,300 students and 200 alumni. Since opening, our schools have regularly outperformed local school districts academically, and the work of many of our schools, staff, and students has been recognized on local, statewide, and national levels. To date, 100% of our high school graduates have been accepted into college, and nearly 80% are currently persisting or have graduated from college.
Where We Work
Offering the ease of small town living near cities like Memphis and Little Rock, the Arkansas Delta is the ideal place to live, play, and work. Our schools currently span two locations, and campuses will continue to grow each year to serve all grade levels. In the 2019-2020 school year, we will serve the following grade levels:
- Helena Campuses -- opened in 2002, serves students in grades PreK-12
- Blytheville Campuses -- opened in 2010, serves students in grades K-12
