We are KIPP Texas Public Schools, an open-enrollment, public, tuition-free network of charter schools in Austin, Dallas-Fort Worth, Houston, and San Antonio. In the 2020-21 school year, we will grow to 60 schools pre-K-12, 31,000 students, and more than 4,000 employees. Approximately 88% of our student population is economically disadvantaged and 37% are English Language Learners.
The reality is this: our work is hard. The days can sometimes be long. But our children matter. Many come to our classroom because it is the safest place they have and they need our support. So we are tenacious in our promises we make to them-- creating joy, building connections, working hard, being generous with praise and recognition, and helping them reap the rewards.
Whether you want to teach, lead a school, or provide operational support, KIPP Texas is where the best come to hone their craft and want to be considered as some of the most influential in their profession. Here, teaching is valued as a profession unlike any other school district you’ve experienced. Our educators are wrapped in support by a team designed to help them focus on students, while developing personally and professionally, whether that is in the classroom or leading a school. The compensation and benefits package rivals not only other school districts- it rivals other organizations.
Mission: Together with families and communities, we create joyful, academically excellent schools that prepare students with the skills and confidence to pursue the paths they choose —college, career, and beyond—so they can lead fulfilling lives and build a more just world.
Every member of the Team & Family at KIPP Texas Public Schools plays a critical role in ensuring our students have the skills and confidence to pursue the paths they choose - college, career and beyond. Our educators are passionate advocates for their students and their families, working tirelessly to ensure that our students have access to opportunity. In our classrooms and across the KIPP family we embrace, honor and celebrate our differences across several characteristics that construct our unique identities in our little and big KIPPsters.We are especially committed to attracting and developing individuals who share the life experiences of our students because we believe the best work we do is grounded in the realities and experiences of our families and KIPPsters.
