For almost a decade, KTV has been the best. KTV has had 7 cohorts of students finish the 8th grade. All 7 cohorts have been the highest performing grade 8 students in Albany as measured by the NYSTP. In 2013, KTV's first class of students reached college age and almost 90% of them were accepted into college with over 80% matriculating in the fall of 2013.

    Students, their parents, and the faculty of KIPP: TECH VALLEY charter school choose to participate in the program. No one is assigned or forced to attend KIPP: TECH VALLEY Charter School. Everyone must make and uphold a commitment to the school and to each other to put in the time and the individual effort required to achieve success.

    There are no shortcuts when it comes to success in academics and life. With an extended school day, week, and year, students have more time in the classroom to acquire the academic knowledge and skills that will prepare them for competitive high schools and colleges, as well as more opportunities to engage in diverse extracurricular experiences.

    The leaders of KIPP schools are effective academic and organizational leaders who understand that great schools require great school leaders. They have control over their individual school budget and personnel. They are free to swiftly move dollars or make staffing changes, allowing them maximum effectiveness in helping students learn.

    We have clearly defined and measurable high expectations for academic achievement and conduct that make no excuses based on the students' backgrounds. Students, parents, teachers, and staff create and reinforce a culture of achievement and support through a range of rewards and consequences for academic performance and behavior.

    This morning was a huge deal for TyRiek in Le Moyne College! This dolphin has made great improvements in his attitude and effort over the past few weeks here at KIPP Tech Valley.  At KIPP we always talk about, "It is not about where you are coming from, but about where you are going."  TyrRiek earned a game of basketball with me, his homeroom teacher.  He earned this by earning his shirt and improving his grades.  So we got to play 1 on 1!  This picture says it all! This was much more than a simple game of basketball! It has inspired TyRiek to focus on his self-control, better himself with his academic progress, and has solidified a great relationship between student and teacher. I have never see a kid more excited or smile more!! Just awesome! Kippsters, "When you make good choices, good things happen."  I am very proud of you TyRiek!  -Mr. Jason
