KIPP Halifax Primary School

KIPP Halifax Primary School

In the fall of 2017, KIPP Halifax College Preparatory Primary will open its doors to its inaugural class of students, the Pride of 2030.


KIPP Halifax Primary will be a family that nurtures and supports children as they grow through guided investigation of our world to begin the journey to college, career, and a life of joy and purpose. As the leaders of our students’ primary encounter with schooling, our staff has the power to reinforce in every child her/his potential and the joy of learning. We aspire that our students’ first experiences with school convince them that school is a place where they are known, valued, and loved for who they are; a place where they succeed and grow everyday; a place where they do important work that matters now and for their future.

The school will be founded with a Kindergarten cohort of 96 students and grow one grade level per year until reaching full size of 480 in 2022. Every student will receive multi-faceted literacy and math instruction daily with additional science, social studies, and enrichment classes on rotation throughout the week.

To learn more about enrolling your child, please contact founding school leader Emily Cook Dwight edwight@kippenc.org.
