With more than 3,000 students on its waiting list, KIPP DC is again reaching into local communities to establish strong foundations for their educational vision. Located in the Trinidad neighborhood, this renovation and new construction is providing space to serve an additional 1,000 students by 2014.

These site cast walls define the new school gymnasium and social core of the neighborhood. “We are excited about KIPP DC’s plans to enrich and enhance the Ward 5 community by offering students a high-quality educational opportunity at a state-of-the-art facility,” said Ward 5 Councilmember Kenyan R.
