KIPP Halifax Primary is 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 was founded with a Kindergarten cohort of 96 students and will 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.

NC School Report Cards
Each year, the state of North Carolina releases School Report Cards to provide educators, parents, policy-makers, and others with common metrics and data for public and public charter school performance, student growth, and student achievement. Schools receive School Performance Grades, with 80 percent of the grade based on the school achievement score and 20 percent of the grade based on academic growth. KIPP ENC also utilizes other metrics, such as ACT scores, AP exam passing rates, and college completion rates, to measure and reflect on the success of our students and schools.

**On March 23, 2020, the U.S. Department of Education approved North Carolina’s request to waive spring statewide assessments, accountability ratings, and certain reporting requirements for the 2019-2020 school year due to widespread school closures related to COVID-19. This means that the 2019-20 report card data is actually from the 2018-19 school year.
