KIPP LA Schools is constructing a permanent facility for the KIPP Empower Academy (KEA) as part of its growth strategy to expand its network from nine to 20 charter schools by 2020.  In 2012-13, KEA was the highest performing school in the Los Angeles Unified School District and the tenth highest performing elementary school in California.  With the new building, KEA will be at full capacity in 2014-15 with over 550 students in grades K-4.  KEA employs a cutting-edge blended learning rotational model that allows teachers to provide small-group differentiated instruction in the four core areas of reading, writing, math, and science despite large class sizes of 28-30 students.  The Foundation’s grant will support construction.
