all these comments must be from the ratchet parents of the new ninth graders we just got, the teachers aren't out of pocket your kids are. we don't have Italian we have Spanish ( fyi im a kipp student) and a lot of those sports are what er had last year and im wonderful principal MR,BASS is planing on bringing them back. if ur kid gets into a college that we have a partnership with you do get money to help with that school. their not just going to give ur child money for getting into a college. that's whats wrong with yall stupid asses if your child would do what their supposed to do then you might actually be able to see what a good school kipp is.

It is imperative that we work together as a people to make schools the best they can be. Instead of saying what schools don't have, ask what can I give. Sure sports, are needed however many people don't understand the cost of insurance, uniforms, transportation or proper playing fields. I think the focus on academics is best, when children have special athletic talents they make it. Thanks to Mr. Bass for his commitment for families in the neighborhood.

my son has been a KIPP since he was in the fifth grade and now he is in the ninth grade I have been very happy with all of the outcome. For the chick that's calling the ninth graders ratchet my son is far from that and I don't have a ratchet bone in my body I'm very and educated so you shouldn't call all ninth graders ratchet

Honestly? A KIPP employee pretending to be a student. This is so lame.

This is the first time I am reading about the KIPP DuBios Collegiate Academy. The

mission statements from the institution’s site seemed impressive to me. I really

want to appreciate the school authorities for all the efforts taken to run the

school successfully.
