KIPP Freedom Middle School

At KIPP Freedom, we believe we are the right people at the right time to continue the revolutionary fight for a just, free, and equitable world. Through rigorous and joyful education, we love and push each other to reach our happiest and highest selves. We develop independent leaders who think critically, work collaboratively, and act courageously. As a team and family, we use the power of our voices, our stories, and our writing to create a world that honors our past, transforms our present, and liberates our future.

A Day in the Life

Our daily schedule includes two hours of math instruction, two hours of reading instruction, small guided reading literacy groups, science, history, computer-based digital learning, and even financial literacy! Students take daily fine arts classes, rotating between exercise science, visual arts, dance, and music. Students have recess each day and participate in weekly advisory groups. At KIPP Freedom Middle School, we believe in developing the whole child with academics and social-emotional development.


Arts and Culture

In Dance class, students explore how to express their thoughts, feelings, and emotions through movement. We learn about different cultures, as well as the pioneers who have paved the way for us to learn about the rich history of dance. We explore many techniques, such as jazz, ballet, West African, and contemporary dance. Students love dance, and feel like it is a safe space for them to express who they are and who they are becoming.

Family First

We have many family events throughout the year, including our Nonfiction Fair, KIPPsterverse Festival, Internet safety training, giveaway raffles, and our Fall Fest Family Feast. The KIPP Freedom Family Association organizes volunteering events, promotes advocacy in the Bronx community, runs bake sales, and hosts parties. Our culture of family involvement contributes to the tight relationship between staff and family. We’re so grateful for all of the partnerships with our families!

Testimonials from Our School Communities

KIPP teaches values to my children. It is not just their school but their home. They are able to be themselves here. It was a no-brainer for me to choose KIPP for my family.


Who doesn’t love math? As a founding teacher, I wanted to continue to impact a community that looks like me, teach a subject, math, that I love, and do this work alongside a team that has shared beliefs and values as I do.
