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.

  • As we enter the home stretch of the 2016-17 school year at KIPP: Tech Valley Charter School, I wanted to take a moment to encourage our Kippsters to FINISH STRONG!  Each of you has been working exceptionally hard over the past 9 plus months.  The finish line is now in sight.  It is hard to believe that next month marks the end of the 5th interval and the close of yet another academic year at KTV.  With only a month or so to go, I encourage you to step up your game to power through to the finish.  Remember what we said from day one back in August, "It is not about where you come from, but it is about where you are going...It is not about how you start, but about how you finish."
