KIPP Baltimore currently operates two schools in the Park Heights community of Baltimore.

KIPP Ujima Village Academy was founded in 2002 by KIPP Baltimore Executive Director, Jason Botel and where Shawn Toler is the Principal.   KUVA is a public charter school in Baltimore City.  During its seven years in operation, KUVA has been ranked as the highest performing public middle school in Baltimore City.
