What We Do

KIPP Northeast Elementary teaches academic skills, cultivates character growth, and empowers students on their journey to and through college. Our students will leave KIPP Northeast Elementary with the passion, skills, and desire to change the world and be leaders in the Far Northeast Denver community.

Since 2015, KIPP Northeast Elementary has been built on the belief that great schools create both excellence and equity. An excellent and equitable education will prepare our students with the passion, skills, and desire to be college graduates and leaders of the community.

We believe that an emphasis on restorative practices is an approach that honors the autonomy, intelligence, and diverse experiences of our students. An investment in social and emotional learning drives greater equity in the student experience.

Academics: Early Childhood Education (ECE)

We offer the following classes for our youngest learners: Phonics, Literacy, Free Choice centers, Math, Recess, Small Group Instruction, Reading, Counting, English Language Development, and Gross Motor Play. KIPP Northeast Elementary has received a rating of 5 on Colorado Shines, the highest rating possible! This is a testament to our commitment to providing a high-quality learning environment that supports the development of Far Northeast Denver’s youngest minds. This Colorado Shines rating is one way that KIPP Northeast Elementary demonstrates its quality and dedication to continually fine-tuning its learning model.

Kindergarten through fourth grade

We offer a wide array of classes for our KIPPsters including: Social Emotional Learning, Phonics, Small Group Reading, Recess, Counting, Math, Social Justice, Science, English Language Development, and Grammar.

We are also excited to offer ELA-S programming for Heritage Spanish Speakers. Students enrolled in this program will receive literacy and phonics in both English and Spanish. KIPP students additionally have many opportunities throughout the day to learn and practice social and emotional skills.

Clubs & Activities

KNE has an on-site partnership with the Boys and Girls Club of Metro Denver. They offer before and after-school care on-site at KNE. Before school care begins at 6:30 AM and after school care goes until 7:00 PM. KNE also offers after-school clubs throughout the year for students to opt into joining.

Family Opportunities

KIPP Family Association

The KIPP Family Association at KNE meets monthly and supports family events at the school, celebrations for staff, and volunteer opportunities.

Coffee Chat with Leadership

Families meet monthly with school leadership at the Coffee Chat with Leadership meetings. During these meetings, there is no set agenda. This is an organic, open forum where families can provide input on curriculum needs, staffing, after-school programming, etc. All families are invited to attend these meetings.

Collaborative School Committee (CSC)

Parent and staff committee members are elected by their school to participate in quarterly meetings to discuss the school’s priorities, progress, and practices in order to ensure they are inclusive of family, student, and staff voices. School leaders make decisions about KNE with input from their CSC.
