Why KIPP MA?

A Committed Team


KIPP teachers know every student walks through the doors of school bearing gifts.

So they support our students to see those gifts, then build the skills and confidence students need to thrive. Our teachers challenge students’ minds while nurturing their joy of learning– whether they are working to read their first word or solve their first calculus problem. Alongside a committed team, KIPP teachers support each student to pursue their highest aspirations.

"KIPP MA is an organization that is consistently evolving and improving and that starts with the leaders. When you join KIPPMA, you join a team of folks who work hard and play hard; who take our work very seriously but not ourselves so much that we stop growing. KIPP MA is the place to make a difference on a day to day basis and see the fruit of your labor years from now. We are able to live in the present, ensure we balance work and life, plan and hope for the future and work to improve on a daily basis. We are a diverse, joyful, hard working - and yes, flawed - group of folks who are committed to a future without limits!"
