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.

Kipp Harmony Reviews
I love KIPP Harmony because from day one in kindergarten, the children are being prepared for college. I have two grandsons attending, class of 2023 and 2025. They already know the importance of a college education. All of the children are taught at their own rate, however everyone shows growth at the end of every year. I am a retired educator, and think this is the best curriculum I've seen over many years.
The curriculum is excellent. My grandson actually look forward to going to school everyday. He is in first grade and has shown so much progress. Kipp harmony works with children on their abilities level. He is now reading on fifth grade level, and is able to do math on second and third grade level. The curriculum is such that it works with each child at his own pace. I taught school for thirty two years and highly recommend the kipp schools.
