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 with the kindergarten through the 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 Frederick A. Douglas High School. This allows us to give families an opportunity to make KIPP home on St. Claude for many years.

School Hours: 7:40 a.m. – 4 p.m., 7:40 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 afternoon on early dismissal days. During our normal dismissal process, All parent pick up students can be picked up at the side gate on Mandeville Street between 3:50 and 4 p.m.
