Founded in 2011, KIPP Northeast Denver Middle School (KNDMS) serves 455 students in grades 5 through 8. KNDMS’s mission is to provide an excellent and equitable education that enables all students to develop the knowledge, skills, and character strengths necessary to climb the mountain to and through college, career, and lead lives of choice and opportunity.

KIPP Northeast Denver Middle School is a joyful and caring community that works together to support our students to become lifelong learners, innovative problem solvers, and social change agents, all while staying true to their own unique identities and authentic selves. By fostering a student-centered environment that is committed to racial equity and inclusion, all students experience the highest levels of academic, character and social-emotional learning.

The academic vision for KNDMS is defined by its rigorous curriculum and instructional delivery that is both engaging and culturally and historically responsive. By ensuring that a broad range of perspectives and diverse voices are represented throughout all contents, middle school students are guided to find their own voice through discourse, inquiry and authentic opportunities to apply their learnings.

We are part of the KIPP National Network – the largest national charter school network in the United States. KIPP Northeast Denver Middle School is also proud to be a part of KIPP Colorado’s educational pathway from ECE-4 to 12th grade. We are one of Colorado’s only intentionally designed schools to offer an ECE to 12th-grade and beyond pathway with direct post-secondary support with our KIPP Forward program.
