Liberty Public Schools, serving 12,793 students this year!

We need you!

Our community plays a huge part in real world experiences for our students. Please look below to see how you can make a difference!


We have Shadow Search Day where 7th graders begin to see all the career options available to them. We have Future Finance where juniors in high school learn about living on their own as a 26 year old and why their choices now are important to their success later.


We have panels of experts where high school students get to ask practical questions of the experts (you) who know what it's like to work in your field.


Each listing in this issue is a way to be involved. There are many options. We welcome you to our schools!

Shadow Search Day
