Mission Statement / Programmatic Model:
KIPP Renaissance High School prepares students for the rigors of college, without sacrificing a high school experience deeply rooted in the fabric of New Orleans, where they can create numerous happy memories. We aim to prove that these dual intentions are not mutually exclusive for our students. This is a place where kids want to learn, parents want to send their kids, teachers want to teach, and leaders want to lead.

School Performance

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.
