Mission Statement:

Our Mission
KIPP Believe Primary is built on the belief that accountable schools constructed on a foundation of thoughtful college-focused planning and strong neighborhood partnerships have the ability to transform communities from within.
At KIPP Believe Primary we empower our young scholars with academic knowledge and community support while cultivating strong character and values. Our scholars gain the tools needed to advocate for themselves, their friends and families in order to become respectful revolutionaries who ultimately succeed in ending generational poverty within their community.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

Our Vision
KIPP Believe Primary creates a school environment where all children are safe, successful and free to take risks in order to become their best selves. Highly trained and compassionate teachers provide our scholars the knowledge, skills and experiences they need to become not only academic achievers, but also artists, scientists, authors, athletes, community organizers and agents of change.
Our scholars will be held to high literacy standards, be taught through rigorous instruction, engage in hands on service learning and be exposed to dynamic learning experiences. We believe this will lead our students to develop a deep love for education and literacy, internalize a sense of social responsibility focused on improving the world around them and feel committed to their own success and the success of others as they become the active leaders of tomorrow.
