KIPP OKC South Community Prep opens for the 2017-18 school year and will add one grade level per year.
The college preparatory middle school is gearing up to expand the KIPP model into a high school and elementary school.
“Our kids need us,” McDaniel said. “We owe it to our kids to give them a quality education.”
OKCPS considers partnering with charter schools to improve public education and asks community for feedback.
