Mission Statement / Programmatic Model:
The mission of KIPP McDonogh School for the Creative Arts is to create transformative leaders through rigorous academic, character, civic, and creative arts development to ensure they have the skills to succeed in college and beyond.
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.
This school’s academic performance data and next renewal year can be found below. For more information on school accountability, click here.Letter Grade: C
Renewal Year: Winter 2020-2021
