KIPP Raíces Academy
KIPP Raíces Academy 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 270 schools in 20 states and Washington, DC.
KIPP Raíces Academy seeks to inspire the passion needed for students to achieve their goals, excel in the competitive world, and positively impact the community through excellence in thought and action. Our school nurtures students, also known as “achievers,” to become well-rounded critical thinkers who love learning. Our students are not only excellent academic achievers, they are artists, scientists, authors, athletes, and agents of change.
