Students and Families,
I am truly honored and moved by the opportunity to open KIPP DFW’s first high school, KIPP Oak Cliff Academy. My commitment to this work is grounded in the people it serves – you. Over my years of working in education I have come to learn that the highest levels of success exist only when there is trust. For this reason I am focused on continuing to learn from you and our community to design and lead what will be an educational environment we all feel comfortable, supported, and positively challenged in.
I am grateful for the experiences I’ve had in the past, as they have molded my outlook and priorities when it comes to leading a school. Through our cultural and instructional cornerstones, a strong partnership with KIPP Through College, and ongoing community involvement, we will exist through our school vision and values, and exit high school ready to take on the challenges of college and career.
KIPP DFW Public Schools will open its first high school, KIPP Oak Cliff Academy, in August of 2018. Across the national KIPP network, KIPP High School graduates matriculate to and persist in college at rates 30% higher than their peers who have only attended KIPP Middle Schools. Additionally, 86% of KIPP High School classes outperform their local districts in English, and 68% do so in Math. Through opening KIPP Oak Cliff Academy, KIPP DFW is excited to extend the opportunity for a free, rigorous K-12 pathway in southern Dallas.
