KIPP Intrepid develops self-aware, self-directed, socially-adept learners by providing an individualized learning environment, project-based learning experiences, and integrated character development. At Intrepid, practice makes perfect. ALL of our students have multiple opportunities to practice and perfect academic and behavioral skills. They acquire the character needed to succeed in college and life by participating in thoughtfully designed learning tasks grounded in core content. We understand that parents and community partners are crucial to the success of our students, and we welcome their active support and participation in the life of our school.
KIPP Intrepid serves more than 400 college-bound 5th through 8th grade students.
Our student body is 99% Hispanic and 1% African-American.
Students learn valuable academic lessons in math, English, social studies, and science. Character education is also an integral part of being a student at Intrepid. Our Elite 8 character strengths are integrated throughout our curriculum.
Differentiation through technology for students occurs in every classroom. All students are issued a Chromebook which travels between home and school. We believe technology is the key driver in individualizing student learning.
