KIPP Academy of Opportunity
KIPP Academy of Opportunity is a tuition-free, college-preparatory charter public middle school in South Los Angeles and is part of the national KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program) network of 270 schools in 20 states and Washington, DC.
Our commitment to giving students more time in the classroom, setting high expectations, and focusing on results has enabled our students to make incredible strides. Our students outperform their peers in neighboring traditional LAUSD schools as measured by the 2017 Smarter Balanced Assessment Consortium (SBAC) exam.
School Core Values
"KIPP Academy of Opportunity has a very distinct soul - we embody KIPP’s ‘work hard, be nice’ motto. We faced a lot of challenges over the past few years, but we are gritty. All of our team members and students embody that.”
