Principal's Message

  • Justin Colbert Liberty High School, located in North Liberty, IA, opened in 2017 with 750 students. Liberty is one of three fully comprehensive high schools in the Iowa City Community School District. In our three short years of existence, we have quickly grown to serve over 1150 students. Similar to our fully comprehensive sister schools in the District, Liberty offers an expansive and rigorous curriculum that includes numerous Advanced Placement (AP) and honors courses, as well as a comprehensive fine arts program. Our co-curricular programming offers a wide variety of clubs and the full range of interscholastic varsity sports that compete as an active member of the Mississippi Valley Conference.

    We are fortunate to have access to a state of the art building that includes a beautiful two-story mixed-use grand commons, a two level 800 plus seat auditorium, student spaces designed to facilitate collaboration, and innovative technology that is readily available for students and staff to access. New for the 2020-2021 school year is the opening of a 500-seat, 21-classroom addition to the academic wing that was completed as part of phase III construction. Phase III construction also included the addition of a hardscaped courtyard located in the middle of our academic wing. In addition to the indoor facilities, Liberty also has excellent outdoor facilities on campus that feature a stadium/track, baseball and softball fields, tennis courts, and a soccer field.

    At Liberty, we are also a positive behavior intervention and support (PBIS) school. We are dedicated to fostering an effective learning environment by establishing positive behavioral supports and the culture needed for all students in our school to achieve social, emotional, behavioral, and academic success. To achieve this we have developed clear and consistent student expectations and accountabilities that reflect our core values of “Belonging, Ownership, Leadership, Teamwork, and Safety.” We continuously analyze appropriate data to drive ongoing decision-making, and apply research based best practices to improve student management and outcomes. 

    Thank you for taking time to visit our website. Please feel free to contact us if you need assistance.

    Go BOLTS!

  • School Calendar Update and Enrollment Deadline Reminder

    The Board discussed the District’s upcoming transition to a 100% on-site learning model during a special Board Meeting on February 2, 2021. In order to better prepare for this transition, it was decided that Friday, February 12, 2021, will be a ‘no school’ day for students. Staff will utilize this day to prepare to welcome students back to 100% on-site learning on Monday, February 15, 2021. This includes aligning student services, building staffing plans, equipping buildings with necessary furniture, reviewing new health and safety protocols, and conducting building cleaning. The ‘no school’ day applies to both on-site and online students and will not impact the last day of the school year this June.

    On January 29, 2021, a bill was signed by the Governor requiring school districts to provide parents an option to send students to school five days a week. Due to this change in state law, the District will offer a 100% on-site option and a 100% online option (ICCSD PK-12 Online Learning Program). Effective February 15, 2021, the District will no longer offer the hybrid option.
