At KIPP Liberation, we are an extremely close-knit community.  This results in our students consistently out-performing their peers in the Third Ward and surrounding areas. We are student-centered and encouraging.  We provide an educational space where children are loved and challenged.

The academic program at KIPP Liberation is rich and rigorous with a focus on preparing students with the skills and confidence to be well-rounded individuals and successful in life.  Every day students are engaged in core content and enrichment classes. All children participate in the classroom environment and are challenged to grow both intellectually and socially. Additionally, our schedule has built-in intervention to provide extra help to those students who need additional support.
