School's History

  • 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.
