Our Teachers

Our teachers share a passion for helping underserved children, regardless of race and background, climb the mountain to college — yet each offers a distinct vision, inspiration, and motivation for the hard work and dedication they put forth each and every day.

College Signing Day! Thursday, April 30, 2009!

100% of the senior class has been accepted to college.
Gaston College Preparatory, one of the first KIPP (Knowledge is Power Program) schools in the country, is about to graduate its first class of seniors.

On April 30, 2009, each senior, in signing day fashion, will reveal for the first time, the college they have chosen to attend.

This event is the culmination of a nearly 10 year journey for many of these students and the school and a testament to what can be achieved when you believe that all kids can learn.

In Durham, North Carolina, this KIPPster is ready for college

KIPP alumnus Myles Jackson Nicholson When Myles Nicholson was a little kid living in California, his mom gave him an old, rickety computer with QBasic, a programming language, and a copy of QBasic for Dummies. By the time he was eight, Myles was hooked. “I started making my own little programs, testing them out on my mom and sisters. It was my introduction to computer science, and I loved it,” he remembers.

KIPP Foundation

In 2000, Doris and Don Fisher, co-founders of Gap Inc., formed a unique partnership with Feinberg and Levin to replicate the success of the two original KIPP Academies through the non-profit KIPP Foundation. The KIPP Foundation focuses its efforts on recruiting, training, and supporting outstanding leaders to open new, locally run KIPP schools in high-need communities.

The KIPP Foundation does not manage KIPP schools, but is responsible for supporting and monitoring school quality across the network. Each KIPP school is run independently by a KIPP-trained school leader and local board of directors.
