in Our KIPPsters, Team & Family

“This is a time when many of our KIPPsters, Big and Little, as well as their families are experiencing uncertainty and fear. As a child of immigrants, I stand with you.” Sehba Ali, Superintendent, KIPP Houston Public Schools.

At KIPP Houston Public Schools, we embrace and protect diversity. We believe that great education transforms lives. We are convinced that every student, regardless of race, religion, socioeconomic status, gender, sexual identity, ability, or country of origin, has the potential and the right to go to and through college and lead choice-filled lives. Our commitment to them is absolute and unwavering.

We will continue to hold high expectations, helping students develop strength of character, providing highly effective teachers and leaders, and providing safe, structured and nurturing environments for all students. Supporting the integrity of our families is consistent with KIPP Houston’s core values of honor, commit, persist, excel, and enjoy.

During this time, our work getting our KIPPsters To and Through is even more important. We will give our KIPPsters the tools they need to build a better tomorrow.
