A matter of principle.
KIPP Destiny Elementary's core values are: Inquire, Make it Better, Persist toward Excellence, Appreciate, Care, and Take a Risk.
We think deeply about the world, our roles and responsibilities within it, and how it has worked for or against us in the past. We ask questions to understand more about how we can grow. We respectfully challenge the way things are.
Make it Better
We seek out ways that we can selflessly make our classrooms, school, and community a better place for others to thrive. We look for solutions to complex problems that we face. We take ownership of our choices and push ourselves to grow constantly.
Persist Toward Excellence
We exude resilience in the face of a struggle. We work harder than we think we ever thought possible. We show optimism and grit in the darkest trials, and never give up on growing through a challenge.
We are grateful for the talents and gifts we each come with in this world, and take time to bring joy to others by celebrating what they bring to our team.
We treat others the way we would like to be treated. We exude love for the people, places, and things around us. We actively seek out ways to connect with each other with respect and dignity.
Take A Risk
We eagerly try new things, and give ourselves a chance to experience the world in a different way that pushes us to see the world with fresh perspective. We encourage one another when daring to be vulnerable in an unfamiliar situation.
Our Mission & Vision
KIPP Destiny Elementary School will grow scholar-leaders who are empowered to define their own destiny and positively impact the world through superior academic preparation and leadership development.
KIPP Destiny Elementary students will thrive in a safe and challenging learning environment of educational excellence, enabling scholars to both grow as leaders and build capacity to act independently and make choices that will eventually transform our local community and the world as they define their own destiny to and through college.
