The KIPP Delta Difference
KIPP’s longstanding motto — “Work hard. Be nice.” — isn’t just a tagline. Since our founding, the development of character has been as important to us as the teaching of rigorous academic skills. Today we are especially focused on seven highly predictive strengths: zest, grit, self-control, optimism, gratitude, social intelligence, and curiosity. Learn more about why character counts and how you can dive deeper into character development on the KIPP Foundation website.
