About Us

At KIPP Morial, we are a team and family. We share a collective vision of excellence while prioritizing the well-being of every individual team member and scholar. We believe happy, healthy, proud scholars and happy, healthy, proud teachers are the foundation of current and future success. We recognize the power of positive ENERGY and hold it sacred in our drive to ACHIEVE academic results, setting our scholars on a choice-filled life path to and through college.

We are about the overall well-being of every person in our school family. Our main goal that is that both our students and teachers feel a deep sense of belonging. We believe this sense of belonging fosters a love of learning, an inspiration to grow, and love others in return.
