• FOCUS ON RESULTS

    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.
  • CHOICE & COMMITMENT

    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.
  • MORE TIME

    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.
  • POWER TO LEAD

    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.
  • HIGH EXPECTATIONS

    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.

    I'd like to give a shout out to all of the KIPPsters. Over 99% of the student body at KTV completed the ELA state test this week to show what they know and learn what they still need to work on. When faced with a challenge, we don't opt out. We do our best and work together to be the best. I am thankful for, and proud of, each and every one of you!

    I'd like to give a shout out to Ms. Loretta for doing a great job this week in the new position. We are all thankful you are here and happy that you are on our team!

    I'd like to give a shout out to our parents for continuing to work with us to help provide the KIPPsters with the best opportunities possible to be successful.

    I'd like to give a shout out to Sareejha and Uniquea for sharing lunch with me!

    I'd like to give a shout out to Franklin G. just for being yourself and always making me smile.

  • Over the past three days students in grade 5 ELA have been working extremely hard to "show what they know" on the NY State grade 5 ELA Common Core Assessment. As their ELA teacher leader at KIPP Tech Valley, I wanted to give all of my students a very special shout out for the hard work they have put in over the past 140+ days of school that has led up to this week.  I want to also shout out the hard work of my fellow teacher leaders and all the staff here at KIPP for helping us get ready for this State Test as well as continually encouraging our students daily to strive for greatness.  As the great Michael Jordan said, "When you put in the work, the results will come." It is my hope that our hard work will show when the results are posted in the future.  Keep up the good work KIPPSTERS!

  • The Kippsters in my ELA 5 after school X-Factor session have worked exceptionally hard over this past interval.  We have met every Monday & Wednesday after school from 5pm-6pm over the past two months in order to improve our ELA skill set and increase our grades in all facets of ELA. As the great Michael Jordan once said, “When you put in the work, the results will come.”  I am delighted to say that the hard work has paid great dividends for these students.

    A shout out to the following Kippsters:
    Sheila C. (Le Moyne) +6 overall (73-79) including Fiction going up 15 pts
    Tamia R. (Oswego) +8 overall (68-76), +24 in nonfiction this interval
    Zamarion C. +8 (71-79), +15 in fiction
    Dushawn J. (Oneonta) +9 (66-75) +16 in his writing
    Nayzara W. (Oneonta) +7 (71-78), +14 in nonfiction

    Keep up the great work!  I am super proud of you all!
