KIPP Promesa Prep
KIPP Promesa Prep is a tuition-free, college-preparatory charter public elementary school in East Los Angeles and is part of the national KIPP (Knowledge Is Power Program) network of 256 schools in 20 states and Washington, DC.
In Spanish, “promesa” means promise. As a school, we are promising students, families, and the community that a quality education starting in elementary school will provide a better future. We believe that when schools provide an excellent education, they provide the path for students and families to transform communities.

What I love most about KIPP SoCal is their goal to provide our children with the best educational choices possible, so that they return and uplift their communities.
