KIPP AMP Middle School

At KIPP AMP Middle School, we provide a rigorous academic program and a variety of co-curricular and after school activities that support students’ individual goals. Our students participate in a world-class music program as well as athletics. Our diverse approach enables students to develop new skills and interests and to build strengths that benefit their preparation for high school, college, and career.

KIPP AMP provides students a college-preparatory program based on best practices shared with KIPP schools across the country. Our passionate commitment to getting our students to read and write on or above grade level is evident in every classroom and conversation we have with students. Many of our students learn to play an instrument and participate in a music program that centers on the rich history of jazz. The school’s Legacy Jazz Ensemble regularly performs at events throughout the city and with professional musicians. Students also participate in various athletic teams that have included football, basketball, volleyball, track and field, and soccer.

Our students and staff participate in many local events and our doors are always open to families, guest speakers, and community leaders eager to partner with us to drive student achievement, health, and happiness.

A Day in the Life

At KIPP AMP Middle School, the commitment to nurturing the whole child is evident in various initiatives that go beyond academics. Pride Circles provide a dedicated space for students and staff to celebrate achievements, present solutions for growth, and foster motivation in both character and academics. In addition to rigorous classroom instruction, students benefit from Advisory sessions, where teacher-guided lessons equip them to navigate the complex landscape of well-being, social media, and technology. This proactive approach addresses challenges such as cyberbullying, ensuring a comprehensive program of turnkey, best-in-class resources that support students, educators, and families.
The school values character development through Team & Family, building a strong and supportive community. While academics remain a focal point of our school day, this initiative goes beyond, instilling in students the values of teamwork, camaraderie, and the joy of belonging to a community that supports one another.

Testimonials from Our School Communities

We’re fortunate to be a part of such an amazing institution. KIPP is an extension of the love, hope, faith, and optimism I have for the future of my children. KIPP empowers and supports my children allowing them to graduate “whole” young adults.


I enjoy every second I am able to stand in front of each and every one of my students and share my love of learning with them. Collaborating and working with teachers in the school brings me lots of joy!
