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 Austin Collegiate's test results to learn more about school performance.

Kipp Austin Collegiate Reviews
This is a new school, and they are still making changes as they go. The school day is from 7:30a until 5P and way too long since they give out so much homework every night. (like 3 hours at least).
My child is in 9th grade. With the homework load and long school day, she has no time for any activities on the weekdays and has gotten very burned out in the last weeks of the year.
