    "The teaching staff here works really hard. Really hard. They're all professional and kind and they really care. The kids are nuts and run the show. The admin stresses that students are not to be kicked out. Yes...99% of kids should not be kicked out...but some should. The ones who disrupt every minute of every day should...but they're not. The school is not organized well. There is no teacher evaluation system. Teachers work long hours with standard raises. The region let their PDE Induction Program lapse. No one even knew until teachers went to apply for their level 2 certificates and couldn't. The school had around 50% turnover last year in staffing...some really good people were let go because they had issues with how the school was being run. But instead of taking suggestion, get rid of the administrators and teachers who helped the school get some of its highest test scores in years. Makes sense. It's a warm, fuzzy, joke riddled with KIPPisms designed to distract you from the fact that they're letting kids and their families down year after year. Maybe if regional leadership changed...."

    "KIPP, is absolutely the best charter school in philadelphia. My daughter is doing very well at this school. Terren is currently a 7th grader. I love that fact that the school supports college education. From naming the classrooms after colleges to the intense daily schedule. The teachers are dedicated. The kids enjoy coming to saturday school. My daughter has gone to Washington DC, Utah and California, not for only doing a good job but these trips give them a change to explore other places besides Philadelphia. This term she looking forward to going to Atlanta and in the 8th grade Puerto Rico. This institution of learning has the best education and the best set of teachers that you could ever ask for. I have referred 4 families to Kipp this year and the parents tell me the kids love it. I am proud to be a KIPP parent. Shanta Richardson"
