About This School
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system. See Kipp Summit Academy's test results to learn more about school performance.

Kipp Summit Academy Reviews
Prior to KIPP Summit my son was failing in math and was reportedly reading at 3rd grade level when leaving 4th grade. Upon arrival at KIPP he tested at 2nd grade level reading. Since he has been at KIPP he is now in the 6th grade and is almost at reading level for his grade as well as excelling in math.
