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 Lead Middle School's test results to learn more about school performance.

Kipp Lead Middle School Reviews
i personally think that kipp is a good school. I no a child that when to kipp and before threy went there they were not doing good but as they joined kipp and continued to go kipp they have been doing and outstanding job.And now as they leave kipp to go on to futher learn they are in a good and different path than before. but i will say that they are more quiet now and that may just be a teen thing. (I hope) But as of now i see this young child do excellent and very well in college.
I relocated back to Gary, from Indianapolis Indiana, and I was worried about what school my daughters were going to attend. I am so grateful that that I choose Kipp. The teachers were awesome with their patience and ability to in store discipline in a positive manner. I believe that teachers are there to teach the students; however, some parents think the teachers are supposed to do their job as parents. Yes, our children are with the teachers for eight hours a day and over two hundred days a year: therefore, they help raise our children. I would hope to see more parents get serious with their child education and help our teachers out; by challenging your children to have more respect for adults as wells as their peers and most of all have them to help them to learn what integrity really means. Our children are our future: we as parents have to make a change in ourselves in order for the children to see the changes that should be made. As I stated in the beginning Kipp is a great school but, I was sad to hear of all the teachers that are leaving, I pray the change is a good for our students. I am looking forward to the ice cream social this evening.
i have been associated with this school for 3 years, its been the worst. some of the teachers should not even deal with students/children no people skills or patience. they are not equipped to deal with our children. i have heard of a teacher making ignorant comments about a female student but he is still there. also there was a teacher there that had pushed a student, throw his coat on the floor, mistreated students rude and disrespectful she is no longer there but she was transferred to another kipp school makes no sense. also they do not hear when the children have something to say. some teachers stop teaching the class when one child is disruptive which causes the other children to miss out. they have weak male teachers and hard female teachers. the teachers wont let the children go to the bathroom they make them wait to the point children have walked out. the children have gotten so frustrated that they have hit the teachers. there is favoritism over other students. how do students go in there on the honor roll but they are so called problem children. its soo much more. i hope that they will do a complete 360 change in how they run the school. i must say they are very lean back when it comes to the dress code children have blue in their hair and other colors. its very sad that Gary does not have alot of choices to pick from i rather have them there then at a public school. as long as you stay on top of things and document events then you should be fine.
