KIPP FACILITY GUIDE FOR EARLY CHILDHOOD AND ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

September 2, 2016

This guideline resource is intended to support KIPP Schools to make informed decisions concerning its Early Childhood and Elementary School facilities.  As KIPP grows and begins to serve more students at younger ages it is important to gather general best practices employed by KIPP middle schools and high schools, to understand lessons learned from pioneering KIPP elementary schools and to tailor this information to help KIPP schools in the future.  Public Architecture produced this comprehensive facilities design guide for KIPP’s national network of schools in collaboration with Cannon Design.

“Learning is far more complicated than once thought. Complications arise because learning involves more than just school, curriculum and test results…”- David Orr, Professor of Environmental Studies and Politics at Oberlin College in his foreword to The Third Teacher
