Short for 'Knowledge is Power Program', these KIPP programs are based in the Los Angeles area.

KIPP LA Schools is a non-profit organization that operates elementary and middle public charter schools in under-resourced communities in South and East Los Angeles.

KIPP LA’s schools feature a “no shortcuts, no excuses” philosophy and a strong culture of achievement. The curricula are designed to provide students a well-rounded education, with sufficient time dedicated to academics, the arts, enrichment, and physical education.

As of 2012, KIPP LA served 1,650 elementary & middle school students, 99% of whom are African American or Latino and 88% of whom are low-income.

Here's a report on KIPP LA included in the Innosight Institute's report on blended learning schools.
