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 Coastal Village's test results to learn more about school performance.
In 2011, Kipp Coastal Village had 465 students for every full-time equivalent teacher. The Texas average is 15 students per full-time equivalent teacher.

Kipp Coastal Village Reviews
Formerly great, now not so much.
This would have been our third year at KCV. We were previously very pleased with the education, school culture and diversity of the students. However, in the 2013-14 school year, some very disturbing changes occurred. Learning came to a halt, and the formerly very strong emphasis on the WHISPER values (Wisdom, Honor, Internal Control, Spirit, Persistence, Excellence and Relationships) became nonexistent. What was once a calm, excellent learning environment turned into classrooms with rampant, sometimes dangerous misbehavior from the students. I was left with no choice but to remove my children mid-year for fear of their safety.
