KIPP Forrest City College Preparatory School (FCCPS) was founded in 2015 and is the newest school in the KIPP Delta Public Schools region, serving nearly 100 students in the fifth through eighth grades. FCCPS students learn specific values, like open-mindedness, integrity, responsibility, and teamwork that will help them climb the mountain to and through college. Teachers focus on building a strong foundation in math, reading, and science for every student, but our school provides students much more than a classroom education.

We strive to inspire our students to value learning and to work hard, and our goal is that they find success not only in college but also in the world beyond.

  • We will maintain high expectations by believing that all of our students will make it to and through college, by setting rigorous goals for each student such that they have the knowledge and skills to succeed in college and life, and by doing whatever it takes to ensure our students meet these goals.
  • We will uphold our commitment to our students and their families by making ourselves available regarding any concerns they might have; all phone calls and emails will be answered within one business day. We will always put forth the requisite time and effort to ensure our students meet their goals. We will always protect the safety, interests, and rights of all individuals in the classroom by taking ownership of our students at all times and in all ways.
  • To ensure that our students have more time on task, we will arrive at DCHS every day by 7:30 A.M. and will remain until at least 5:00 P.M. (Mon.-Fri.) We will come to DCHS on appropriate Saturdays and take eligible students on at least one field lesson per month. We will take students on an End of Year Field Lesson for one week in June, we will work at the school for one week in June and have two weeks of vacation in June. We will help our students achieve their goals in the months of July and August by teaching at summer school, doing credit recovery, and participating in professional development.
  • We will demonstrate our power to lead as the instructional leaders of our classrooms and also through leadership in extracurricular activities and sports. We will always model what we expect of our students, and will take initiative to create opportunities for our students outside the classroom.
  • We will focus on results by seeking out best practices and then using data-driven instruction to ensure that we are teaching in the best way we know how. We will ask for help when needed, collaborate with colleagues, and attend professional development classes, staff meetings, and department meetings as scheduled.
  • We will make sure our child arrives at DCPS every day by 8:00 A.M. (Monday through Friday) or boards a bus at the scheduled time.
  • We will make arrangements so our child can remain at DCPS until 4:00 P.M. (Monday through Friday).
  • We will make arrangements for our child to come to DCPS on appropriate Saturdays at 8:00 A.M. and remain until 12:00 P.M.
  • We will ensure that our child attends DCPS summer school.
  • We will always help our child in the best way we know how, and we will do  whatever it takes  for him/her to learn. This also means that we will check our child’s homework every night, let him/her call the teacher if there is a problem with the homework, and try to read with him/her every night.
  • We will always make ourselves available to our children, the school, and any concerns they might have. This also means that if our child is going to miss school, we will notify the teacher as soon as possible, and we will read carefully all the papers that the school sends home to us.
  • We will allow our child to go on DCPS field lessons.
  • We will make sure our child follows all of the procedures and policies in the DCPS Handbook.
  • We understand that our child must follow DCPS rules so as to protect the safety, interests, and rights of all individuals in the classroom. We, not the school, are responsible for the behavior and actions of our child.
  • I will maintain high expectations for myself by believing that I will make it to and through college and by setting rigorous personal goals such that I have the knowledge and skills to succeed in college and life.
  • I will uphold my commitment to DCHS by putting forth the requisite time and effort so that I meet my goals. This means I will complete all of my homework at home, will study in advance for any tests and quizzes, and will stay organized at all times. I will always follow all of the procedures and policies in the DCHS Handbook (including dress code) and will always act in the best way I know how.
  • So that I have more time on task, I will arrive at DCHS every day by 8:00 A.M. (Mon. – Fri.), or board a bus at the scheduled time. If I am going to miss school, I will follow the DCHS Handbook regarding attendance policies. I will attend field lessons and college visits on appropriate Saturdays.
  • I will demonstrate my power to lead by advocating for my learning within the classroom and by taking leadership roles in extracurricular activities and sports. I will model the KIPP Delta values both on and off campus. I understand that I must meet the expectations of KIPP DCHS so as to protect the safety, interests, and rights of all other individuals in the classroom. I know that I am responsible for my behavior and actions and if I make a mistake, I will tell the truth to my teachers and accept responsibility for my actions.
  • I will focus on results by earning the credits required for graduation, by earning “A”s and “B”s in my classes so that I may attend a college of my choice, and by preparing for standardized tests. I will ensure that I will register for, prepare for, and take the ACT. I will also apply to and enroll in precollege summer programs.
