Holding a belief that all students can become college graduates that lead, empower and mobilize change, the Kauffman School staff challenges students daily to meet ambitious academic and life goals. The schools serve a student population of which 87% qualify for free and reduced-price lunch and 90% identify as person of color.  
Our students’ results demonstrate their incredible brilliance, passion, creativity, and work ethic. Kauffman School students are empowered by their identities and place in the community and develop a critical consciousness of the world around them. Kauffman School staff actively partner with families to be a school of the community, not just in the community.
