Why I love KIPP Metro Atlanta Schools: I love how intentional KIPP is in its mission to ensure growth in both academics and character for its scholars. KIPP does a beautiful job balancing its quest for academic excellence AND providing a space for scholars to find love, joy, and respect, which, combined, I believe, will lead to a CHOICE-filled life for its scholars!
