KIPP Liberation was founded in 2006 and has since established a home in Houston’s historical Third Ward community. The exceptional team of teachers and leaders at KIPP Liberation College Preparatory strive daily to mold young thinkers into scholars and service-oriented leaders. At Liberation we focus on educating the whole child through a rigorous academic curriculum, character development program and wellness program. Our students work on character skills such as teamwork and peer accountability in daily advocacy classes.
KIPP Liberation College Preparatory Middle School serves 390 college-bound 5th through 8th graders from the communities of Third Ward, South Park, Sunnyside, and East End.
Our student body is 50% African-American and 50% Hispanic.
KIPP Liberation is a Texas STEM-designated academy that emphasizes critical thinking, technological fluency, collaborative learning, scholarly research, community service, and project-based learning that prepares our students to excel in high school.
KIPP Liberation believes that it takes more than just smarts to succeed in the real world, and our faculty intentionally teaches our students the LIGHT characteristics: Leadership, Integrity, Gratitude, Humility, and Thoughtfulness.

“I love being free to teach creatively. And I love my coworkers.” — Ramonia Scott, Teacher
