Teaching with KIPP:MA

Across the two unique communities of Boston and Lynn, KIPP:MA staff, kids and families are proving that demographics do not determine destiny and that our students can and will achieve academic and college outcomes similar to their peers in more affluent communities. Every teacher believes in our kids’ potential and is committed to our goal of 75% of our students graduating from college and 100% living a life of choice and independence.

What makes teaching at KIPP:MA unique?

A Longer School DayKIPP:MA believes in more time for teachers and students. Each day, teachers have at least two hours of planning time built into their schedules. For our students, the extended school day means more time to catch up on core subjects and opportunities to explore extracurricular activities.
CollaborationImagine working at a school where the teacher across the hall is an expert in his or her subject and you plan together each week. KIPP:MA schools encourage team planning and build time into the schedule for teachers to observe each other, share great ideas, and get inspiration.
Constant GrowthAt KIPP:MA, teacher growth is as important as student growth. With regular observation and feedback cycles, our teachers and school leaders meet weekly to review lesson plans, celebrate successes, and plan next steps to ensure that our teachers continue to grow year after year.
