Core Value of the Month: Leadership

"Leadership and learning are indispensable."- John F .Kennedy

Leadership is an essential part of learning and student attainment. It is not enough for students to simply learn; they must also develop the skills to become active leaders in society. Students will be empowered with the leadership skills to take responsibility for their lives and improve their community. We will emphasize social, civic, and leadership skills enabling students to contribute to, and benefit from, a culturally diverse society. We will offer a range of programs designed to provide leadership opportunities to students and staff.

KIPP GCP Pride High School's Vision

At KIPP Pride High School, our motto is “We learn not for school, but for life.” Our mission is to create a rigorous and joyful learning environment, that provides every scholar with the academic, social and emotional skills necessary to live a life of academic and professional choice. Together, with our scholars, we will lead and serve in our school, community, and will fight for social justice, impacting society, now, and for generations to come.
