KTV has had 6 cohorts of students finish the 8th grade. All 6 cohorts have been the highest performing grade 8 students in the City of Albany as measured by the NYS testing program. 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.

  • Over the past eight or so weeks in Interval 4 a group of 14 students in grade 5 have been staying after school with me to increase their ELA skill set and improve in their reading and writing!  I want to give a HUGE SHOUT OUT to the following students who have demonstrated a tremendous amount of grit by staying twice a week over the course of Interval 4 to continue to feed their brain knowledge:

    Le Moyne Dolphins include:Sheila C, GT, Josephine P, & Tamya R,

    Oswego Lakers: Tamia C, Tamia R, Secret C, Victoria A, & Nakai C

    Oneonta Dragons: Angie A, Zamarion C, Dushawn J, Vashawntee T, & Nazara W

  • I wanted to give three shout outs to some new Kippsters in LE MOYNE COLLEGE who have just begun their journey at KTV, but were certainly impressive today in ELA class:

    1) Shout out to Xavion C. of Le Moyne College for his improved self-control and zest in ELA class.  This Kippster was dynamite today!
    2) Shout out to Khalida M.of Le Moyne for her optimism and work ethic over the first two days...She is off to a great start here at KIPP.
    3) Shout  out to Keyon M. of Le Moyne.  This Dolphin has been swimming to success already by earning some right is right answers in class and continuing to make outstanding choices.

    Shout out to Estreja T. from UA for her Violence Prevention Advertisement!  Estreja took the health project home for the weekend and returned to class today with an outstanding project that exemplified her strong character strengths to end violence and bullying in our Capital District.  You made my day - thank you for going above and beyond!

  • Awesome Fun Friday and NJHS

    2015-03-23 15:54:17
    Our St. Baldrick's Celebration was an awe inspiring event from start to finish! Shout out to Brodie for organizing the event, Student Council for their participation, and those who had the courage and empathy to shave their heads.
    From there I attended the National Junior Honor Society Dinner, where I was completely blown away by Miss Xji-Anne Hudson! Not only did she have total command of the room during her speech, but she looked stunning and handled herself like a true student leader of our school. I have no doubt that she is destined for great things in the future. :)
