KIPP Gaston College Preparatory serves approximately 260 fifth, sixth, seventh and eighth graders in rural northeastern North Carolina. Gaston College Preparatory is a free, public school of choice. Our mission is to provide each of our students with the knowledge, skills and character traits necessary to succeed in college and most importantly in life. The school is founded on the five pillars of the existing KIPP Schools: high expectations, power to lead, choice and commitment, extended time on task, and focus on results. According to the North Carolina State Testing results for the 2002-2003 school year, KIPP Gaston College Preparatory is the sixth highest performing school in the state of North Carolina. In the fall of 2005 Gaston College Preparatory will open KIPP Pride High, KIPP's first rural high school. Eventually the entire campus will serve over 480 students in grades 5th through 12th. The tremendous results of the Pride's hard work will continue to improve and eventually translate into ALL of our students having the skills and habits necessary to become successful life long learners and leaders.
