KIPP Liberation College Preparatory Middle School serves 5th through 8th grade students residing in the communities of Third Ward, South Park, Sunnyside, and the East End of Houston. KIPP Liberation was founded by Mrs. Tori Dugar in 2006 and has since established a home in Houston’s historical Third Ward community directly across from the Shrine of the Black Madonna and two blocks north of the Houston Texans YMCA located at Griggs Road.
The outstanding team of teachers and leaders at KIPP Liberation College Preparatory Middle School strive daily to mold our young thinkers into scholars and service-oriented leaders. Through rigorous lessons, a data-driven culture, and student–centered teaching and learning, our teachers push students to work hard, be kind, have fun, and accomplish their goals.
While in the Eagle’s Nest, students are empowered academically, intellectually and socially. Our students work to hone the skills and knowledge necessary to succeed in top-quality high schools, boarding schools and colleges. In addition, Liberation’s team of awesome teachers work tirelessly to ensure that all of our Eagles will be prepared for competitive academic environments through real-world research, character development, academic risk taking, engaging field lessons, and community service projects.
At Liberation, we believe that it takes more than just smarts to succeed in the real world, so we intentionally teach our students the LIGHT characteristics of leadership, integrity, gratitude, humility and thoughtfulness. We look forward to the day when our Liberation KIPPsters leverage their learning and their leadership skills to contribute to the social and economic improvement of their own community and the world beyond.
