Mission Statement / Programmatic Model:
KIPP Leadership Primary seeks to empower children with the academic and character skills they need to succeed in heart, mind, body, and spirit through education and life. KIPP Leadership Academy seeks to provide students with rigorous education and leadership development to prepare them for high school, college, and a competitive world. Our scholars have the academic foundation, leadership skills, and social intelligence to positively impact the community.
Most New Orleans public schools are charter schools, public schools governed by non-profit boards. Each board is given a contract to operate their charter school for a number of years. When the contract is up for renewal, the Orleans Parish School Board or Louisiana Department of Education uses school performance to determine if the contract should be renewed. If the school hasn’t demonstrated acceptable performance, it may close at the end of the school year, or be taken over by a new non-profit board.Letter Grade: D
