Work hard. Be nice.
KIPP Academy of Opportunity (KAO) is a high-performing tuition-free public charter middle school located in South Los Angeles. We serve approximately 400 students in grades five through eight. KAO enables students to become self-motivated, competent, life-long learners. Our students recognize that an outstanding education is key to achieving personal success and leading a life of infinite opportunity.
Our mission is to ensure that students develop the academic skills, character, and intellectual habits necessary to succeed in competitive high schools, colleges, and the world beyond. Our six guiding principles are: respect, hard work, results, constant learning, determination, and teamwork.
