KIPP Gaston College Preparatory (KIPP GCP) is built on the proverb, “The strength of the pride is the lion, and the strength of the lion is the pride.” The majority of KIPP GCP students are poor, African-American kids living in Northampton and Halifax counties, two of the most economically distressed and educationally disadvantaged areas in North Carolina. For the past three years, KIPP GCP has been named a North Carolina School of Excellence. It has twice been named one of the 25 most improved schools in North Carolina, and in 2002–03 was named North Carolina’s sixth best school out of more than 2,200.
