About Us

KIPP Leadership is home to KIPP Leadership Primary and KIPP Leadership Academy schools.

At KIPP Leadership, we believe kids are the change agents of the future. We believe every child has the potential to change their community as they grow.

During the years, we’ve worked to build alignment along the kindergarten through eighth grade continuum and beyond. At our school, students have the opportunity to spend their entire kindergarten through twelfth school experience within a mile stretch of St. Claude by continuing on to KIPP Renaissance High School. This allows us to give families an opportunity to make KIPP home on St. Claude for many years.

School Hours: 7:25 a.m. – 4 p.m., 7:25 a.m. – 1 p.m. Wednesday

Student Drop-Off/Pick Up: During the school day, early checkouts must come through the front office. Students cannot be checked out after 3 p.m. on standard dismissal days or after noon on early dismissal days. During our normal dismissal process, KLP students can be picked up at the back gate on Rampart Street between 3:40 and 4 p.m. and KLA students can be picked up from the Spain St. side of the building at 4 p.m.

Visitor Information: Visitors have access to street parking, however, do not park in the bus lane after 2:30 p.m. Visitors must enter through the St. Claude doors and sign in at the front office. All visitors must bring ID. While KLP does have an open-door policy for approved family members, they must reach out to the teacher ahead of time to plan their visit.
