Salvador Abundiz, Parent, KIPP San Jose Collegiate
When I drop my girls off at school, or come to help the teachers, I can see that everyone is working together to help one another. Those are the same values I hold for my own family, and I have such confidence in KIPP to give my daughters the education I never had. With KIPP, I know that their dreams are possible. I will see my girls complete college and become whatever they want to be in the world.
