A Day in the Life
KIPP STAR Harlem Elementary is the first and only KIPP elementary school in the nation to feature a gymnastics program! Our daily schedule is filled with excitement that fuses academic and arts curricula. We also offer targeted instruction in math, reading, and science.
Students in grades K-4 participate in weekly experiments that expand their understanding of phenomena and the world around them. One of the ways we bring learning to life is by structuring lessons that are based on real-world connections. Students grapple with scientific concepts and use new information to solve problems.
Chants, cheers, and joy are the ways in which students dive into the world of math each day. Our instruction develops strong numeracy skills, while student investigation provides opportunities to explore, test, and share math ideas.
We cultivate a sense of belonging by infusing arts classes into our academic program. As students navigate the world around them, they are able to express their learnings through visual arts, dance, music, and gymnastics.
