KIPP Delta Elementary Literacy Academy recently broke ground on an expansion to our school building that will allow us to serve more students and add a space for play and imagination. Thanks to the generous support of donors within the KIPP Delta family and beyond, we are building a better tomorrow in the Arkansas Delta. Thank you!
KIPP Delta Public Schools is a growing network of KIPP charter schools offering a free, college-preparatory education to children in the Arkansas Delta. We serve more than 1,200 students across four schools in Helena and Blytheville, Arkansas. KIPP Delta Public Schools are providing a choice to families in the Delta seeking an excellent public education for their children.
KIPP builds a partnership among parents, students, and teachers that puts learning first. By providing outstanding educators, more time in school, and a strong culture of achievement, KIPP is helping all students climb the mountain to and through college. KIPP Delta Public Schools currently serves elementary, middle, and high school students in Helena-West Helena, Arkansas, and fourth through eighth grades in Blytheville, Arkansas.
Every day, KIPP students across the nation are proving that demographics do not define destiny. More than 89 percent of our students are from low-income families and eligible for the federal free or reduced-price meals program, and 96 percent are African American or Latino. Nationally, more than 90 percent of KIPP middle school students have graduated high school, and more than 80 percent of KIPP alumni have gone on to college.
KIPP Delta Public Schools are providing a choice to families in the Delta seeking an excellent public education for their children. We believe that "ALL of us WILL learn" and that through hard work, high expectations, and more time in the classroom with dedicated teachers, each of our students will be prepared for success in college & life. We are looking for dedicated professionals to join our team as teachers and school leaders in the Arkansas Delta.
We believe that all children can achieve at the highest levels. No matter where students are academically when they come to KIPP Delta, our promise is the same – we will do whatever it takes to get them to and through college.
