Description

KIPP, the Knowledge Is Power Program, is a national network of free, open-enrollment, college-preparatory public schools in under-resourced communities throughout the United States.

KIPP Baltimore is home to a diverse group of teachers from all over the country. This array of cultures combined with public and non-public teaching experiences create a TEAM and FAMILY of impeccable talents.
