John Hughes, Parent, KIPP Bridge Academy

I came to KIPP SFCP for my sample lesson and interview. By the time I left that day, I had felt so vetted, so accepted and loved for who I was – I had already started connecting with the students and it just felt like home. I immediately stopped looking. KIPP was exactly where I wanted to be.
