Kipp DC College Preparatory is located in District Of Columbia, DC and is in Kipp Academy Public Charter School District. It is a charter school that serves 211 students in grades 9-10.
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.

Kipp:DC College Prep or KCP as my sister calls it, is a wonderful public charter school. My youngest sister has been enrolled at a KIPP school since junior high school and she really likes it. I love their teaching methods and the courses that they offer. The fact that KCP also prepares high school students early for education after high school is a bonus. Students are offered a variety of subjects as well as extra-curricular activities such as music, volleyball, football, and cheerleading. There are a small number of students per class and I like that this gives the teachers the opportunity to work with each student's individual needs. Her teachers and other staff members have been great in providing updates about her progress in class and homework assignments, and I am able to contact them if I have any questions or concerns. This year she is learning to speak and write the Chinese language and she plays a musical instrument. Since being enrolled at KCP, she is doing really well and I have seen an improvement in her grades.
