In December 2002, the Fayette County Board of Education approved construction of a $14.5 million school to replace Julia R. Ewan Elementary. The land was gifted by the Madden family to the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government, and we are grateful to the city for working with us to make the land available for our school. In April 2007, a naming committee made up of community members, teachers, parents and district administrators recommended "Liberty Elementary" in honor of a principle upon which our country was established and for the area where the school is located. Our school opened in August 2008.

We are proud of the cultural, ethnic, and socio-economic diversity of our school and build upon it daily as we prepare our students for citizenship in a global society. Liberty aims to be a top-performing school that puts students' needs first, creates a positive atmosphere of collaboration and transparency, and ensures all students develop critical-thinking and problem-solving skills. 

What makes our school special

Liberty's academic program captivates students' imaginations and provides stimulating learning activities to promote mastery of the common core standards.

Our Spanish Immersion Program extends from kindergarten through fifth grade. In 2013, Liberty was accepted in the International Spanish Academies, an educational network sponsored by the Embassy of Spain.

Liberty's science program focuses on a hands-on, minds-on approach to learning.  Using inquiry-based process skills and the scientific method, students are actively engaged in investigations that target key ideas in life, earth and physical science.

We also develop creativity, performance skills and a love of the arts. The visual arts, vocal music, dance, drama, band and orchestra programs provide students with knowledge and opportunities to explore and express themselves. These programs are celebrated at the end of every school year during "Picnic with the Arts."
