KIPP Colorado opened its first school, KIPP Sunshine Peak Academy, in Southwest Denver in 2002. In 2009, we opened KIPP Denver Collegiate High School, also in Southwest Denver. In 2011, our second middle school, KIPP Montbello College Prep, opened its doors in Far Northeast Denver. Most recently, in August 2015, we opened our first elementary school, KIPP Montbello Elementary, and second high school, KIPP Montbello Collegiate High School, both in Far Northeast Denver. Our ultimate goal is to build a strong PreK-12 continuum.
As part of KIPP Colorado's objective of supporting as many students as possible on their journey to and through college, KIPP Colorado plans to double the number of students served by 2019 and grow its total number of students and alumni served to nearly 4,000.
