We’re happy to share this new photography of the new KIPP Academy Lynn, which just opened for the 2012 school year. Working with the dedicated staff at KIPP was a unique experience: the school is one of a network of charter schools across the country that follow a rigorous academic program that focuses on getting their students into and through college, and on developing character right alongside educational goals. The program has been very successful – 89% of the most recent class matriculated to college compared to 41% of their underprivileged peers nationwide.
When we designed the new school in Lynn, we focused on KIPP’s particular programmatic needs and pedagogical goals: we prioritized utilization of the building footprint for learning environments (classrooms, breakout spaces, and large group activity areas). As a result, an extremely high percentage of the school square footage is dedicated to core teaching and learning.
