    KIPP is a well-intentioned organization with a fantastic mission that sometimes lacks follow through on the details.

    I have been working at Kipp full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    The mission and values (giving all students access to excellent education that will get them to and through college) are shared by all the teachers, creating a strong sense of community and fostering close relationships with coworkers. You are also given almost complete autonomy over your work, which has drawbacks and benefits.

    Cons

    The compensation, especially considering the work/life balance, is not great. The hours are already longer than a normal school day, and the lack of direction from administrators means you will spend even more time working off the clock to prepare. Some schools focus almost exclusively on raising test scores rather than holistic education.

    I worked at Kipp full-time (more than 3 years)

    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.
