KIPP Northeast Campus Opens Addition to Serve Nearly 1,000 Students

Ceremonial ribbon-cutting for bond-funded ‘Building 28’

Denver – The construction of Denver Public Schools’ (DPS) newest addition to the KIPP Northeast campus, currently called “Building 28” until it is officially named, is complete.

Building 28 can serve up to 950 students at its capacity, allowing KIPP Northeast Elementary to expand its program to add fourth grade in 2018.

The addition to the now 124,000 square foot campus, home to both KIPP Northeast Elementary and KIPP Northeast Middle School, was funded by the 2016 bond made possible by Denver voters. To date, $8.3 million of the construction and design on this project have been used to hire Minority and Women Business Enterprises (MWBE).

A ribbon-cutting ceremony will be held for Building 28 at 5:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 14.
