    Pros

    The students and teachers here are committed to educating students to be better people and better students. You need to be willing to work hard and you will be held accountable.

    Cons

    I have very few negative things to say about KIPP. I left the organization to further my education but for those who desire to grow internally there are plenty of options to move into leadership and/or become a better teacher.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep working hard and ensure that growth does not outpace capacity.
