About Neighborhood Schools
Neighborhood School, Inc. was established in 2018 but its roots start in 1994. That year, 47 fifth graders at Macario Garcia Elementary School on the north side of Houston chose to join a new program called The Knowledge Is Power Program (KIPP). Over twenty-five years later, these educators, community leaders, business leaders, skilled craftspersons, entrepreneurs, and social service providers see it as their responsibility and duty to rekindle that transformational experience for the children of today.
We create educational options that will transform and revitalize our communities. Our work has started with two campuses: Westchase Neighborhood School and Eastex-Jensen Neighborhood School. Today, we support children from Pre-K through 8th grade.
Neighborhood Schools are ResponsiveEd schools.
