KIPP Memphis Academy Middle, part of a national network of college-preparatory, public charter schools, serves students in 5th grade through 8th grade. Our school is rooted in the deep belief that all students, regardless of background, deserve access to an excellent education.
focus on character
Success in life depends on both academics and character. We help students foster character strengths that are essential for their own success and well-being. And we empower them to express their voice with power and to improve the world around them.
KIPP schools have clearly defined and measurable high expectations for academic achievement and conduct in order to create and reinforce a culture of achievement and support. We know that every student is different and we personalize learning based on a student’s needs, skills, and interests.
Safe & Structured Environment
Students need physical and emotional safety to take risks and learn from their successes and mistakes. Our schools provide a safe, structured and nurturing environment with minimal distractions and more time for both academics and extracurriculars, so our students love school and maximize learning.
HIGHLY EFFECTIVE TEACHERS
Great schools require great teachers and school leaders, and of course, great students. At KIPP Memphis Academy Middle, we empower our educators to lead school teams, and we invest in ongoing training to help them grow as professionals.
PATH TO COLLEGE
Not only are students learning about college in 5th grade, they also have the opportunity to attend KIPP Memphis Collegiate High. Starting in 9th grade, our counselors and advisors support students as they prepare for and select the right college and career for their needs. After high school, we help KIPP alumni navigate college's social, academic and financial challenges.
