On June 22, 1907, Kipper School was established. At a special meeting held at Sigel Town Hall, a $1,000 bond was approved for the purpose of building a school. Also at this meeting W.H. Stanton was named Director of School District #6, L. Jock was named Moderator of the school district, and W.M. Jurgess was appointed to the office of Assessor of the district.
The present-day school district has come a long way from the traditional "Little House on the Prairie" type school that is so commonly thought of when one hears the phrase "one-room school". We are up-to-date with our technology and the curriculum offered to our students. Students also have many opportunities to participate in school sponsored activities and field trips, as well as extra-curricular activities offered in the community.
Kipper School currently has 11 students. We employ one teacher and one paraprofessional. We are also incredibly lucky to receive the services from our dedicated traveling staff members: a special education teacher, a Title I teacher, a music teacher, and the support staff from the HISD (speech and occupational therapy, psychology, etc.).
If anyone has any questions or would like more information about Kipper School, please feel free to get in touch with us. We would love to hear from you. We are also looking for more historical information. If you can help us in this search, please contact us.
