Building a better tomorrow for students and families in classrooms, schools, and communities is only possible if we know exactly how we are doing. Data helps us understand our true impact, what is working, and what needs to be improved. By highlighting our students’ achievements, we can help them climb the mountain to and through college.

Beyond test scores, we look at a holistic set of indicators of school health using KIPP’s Healthy Schools & Regions framework, which revolves around our Six Essential Questions. We continually ask ourselves these six questions to keep us focused on the student and school outcomes we believe are vital to helping our students succeed.

Our passionate belief that what we measure matters has been essential to creating a system of high-performing schools. Our holistic approach to measuring the performance of our students, teachers, and schools is beginning to transform how others gauge school success.
