Together with families and communities, our KIPP New Jersey and KIPP Miami teams create joyful, academically excellent schools that prepare students with the skills and confidence to pursue the paths they choose—college, career, and beyond—so they can lead fulfilling lives and build a more just world.
Our team believes deeply in the potential of ALL children. We help students find their voices and feel known and loved for the gifts they bring to our classrooms.
We approach our relationship with our teachers in the same way.
When teachers bring their full selves to our mission, students and their communities reap the benefits. Our schools offer exceptional support to our teachers through mentorship, professional development opportunities, high-quality curriculum, and tight-knit school communities. We support and grow your passion for teaching and hear your ideas so we can grow together.
We began with a single Newark classroom in 2002. And by investing in outstanding teammates, our schools now reach more than 7,000 children in Newark, Camden and Miami.
Join our team and we’ll grow together.

Our Equity Statement
United for Social Justice.
The central tenets of our ‘Heartbeat’—the core values that our organization lives by—is that our community shares a deep belief that our students will change the world and that we are responsible for dismantling systems of oppression that hold our students back from achieving their full potential. Above all, the promises we make to them are sacred. Trusting relationships with families and communities is a core part of creating that change—and another tenant of our ‘Heartbeat.’
We invite you to explore our Heartbeat Values here—it’s a great starting place to better understand what grounds our teaching and learning at KIPP New Jersey.
Engaging in productive conversations about race, identity, stereotypes, and microaggressions is something that our teachers and families do year-round—whether they are initiated by thought-provoking literature, a student experience, or a racist incident on the news. We must confront our own biases and lead by example everywhere in our organization in service of our schools and our communities, and most importantly, our students and their individual and collective futures.
Below are resources that serve as a starting point for these conversations and to start taking action today. We hope you find them actionable and useful as we work towards building a more equitable and just world.
