At KIPP Austin Brave, we are a school community that strives to become our best selves by taking risks, reflecting on our successes and failures, and embracing feedback as an opportunity for growth. We support students as they become curious and self-aware problem solvers who are willing to take risks to advance their own learning. We do this through inquiry-based instruction, student-driven exploration and a commitment to reflection and revision. Brave graduates enter college equipped to engage with challenging content, reflect on their learning and actively seek and solve problems in their communities and around the world.

Letter from the Principal

I am so grateful to get up every day and come to a place where everyone believes in our mission and works diligently to bring it to life. There are no better kids and families in Austin, and there is nowhere I would rather do this work.– Stephanie Burns, Principal of KIPP Austin Brave High School

About Principal Burns: Opening a school is a daunting task, but according to Ms. Burns it is also the most rewarding work she has done. Ms. Burns is excited to build a school for KIPPsters and their families in South Austin, and she is grateful for the opportunity to bring together a team of people who are committed to the hopes and dreams of their students. Ms. Burns formerly worked in Dallas as a teacher, leadership fellow, and an Assistant Principal in the Dallas Independent School District. All of her experience in large schools and large school districts has affirmed for her the value of working in an organization where students come first and the mission drives the work. She is eager to see how KIPP Austin Brave’s vision takes shape over the next several years, and she looks forward to the day the Class of 2020 crosses the stage at their high school graduation and embarks on their college journey.
