KIPP has the smallest kindergarten and first grade class sizes in Jacksonville, with two teachers in a classroom of 26 scholars – a student-to-teacher ratio of 13:1.
We model and expect good behavior and teach students to develop strategies for focus and self-control. Students receive a block of character education each day.
As part of our extended school day model, VOICE students receive exposure to music, health, physical education, world cultures, and science lab. Our fourth grade students receive daily band instruction, with all instruction and instruments provided to students at no cost. This gives a head start on the skills they need to play instruments with excellence in middle school and beyond.
Our students have an opportunity to participate in activities after the school day. This includes choir, flag football, robotics club, and personalized tutoring.
