KIPP Nashville Collegiate High School Team - KIPP Nashville


Meet the KIPP Nashville Collegiate High School team — our school leaders, teachers, and support staff.

In its first year of service, Collegiate was the highest-performing non-selective high school in Nashville, and ranked in the 99th percentile for all public schools in the state for growth in reading, and 98th percentile for growth in math. Our team supports families and students to build college-going identities, habits and skills.
