On Tuesday, June 5, 2012 the groundbreaking of KIPP STRIVE Primary School took place. KIPP STRIVE Primary will join KIPP STRIVE Academy Middle School on the grounds of the former J.C. Harris Elementary School as part of a $10 million investment. The new school building will be built behind the existing building and will face Ralph David Abernathy Blvd.
