High academics. Low social emotional support. Way to strict. Very demeaning discipline tactics. Using the paycheck and the "bench" constantly. Teachers screaming, yelling, and demeaning children in front of the class. My child came home sobbing daily. As a parent I felt ignored and disregarded:( I dreaded taking him/her and prayed every day I picked him/her up. So glad I pulled him/her out. She/he couldn't be happier. Even though his/her was on honor roll the entire time...

KBA has excellent academics because the teachers and staff create an environment that focuses on classroom learning time. The weekly paycheck system provides parents with information about how their student is doing without any surprises. I like that the teachers are available to students even after school hours. Possible areas for improvement are a music program that involves performance in a band, more lockers so that students don't have to carry materials as much.

Kipp San Francisco Bay Academy is a real choice for those of us that lack the privilege to be able to send our kids to private schools. My kids are now into high school but their experiece at Kipp was very fulfilling. Teachers are great and their program too. If you are a parent who is really interested in your child's education and are willing to work hard along with your student and teachers, this is a great school for you. If you are one of those that think that school is just a daycare for your child don't bother. You won't like it!

Kipp has really helped my boy advance academically and socially! he has been working very hard to be the best 5th grader he can be. The teachers really stay on top of the class in a positive way that help to maintain balance toward the future of our children~ I am very pleased with the quality of learning that my child is benefiting from by being a part of the Kipp Team! Great principal that greet the team of students every morning in a very pleasant demeanor that is important very early in the morning.
