  • 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.

    Go BOLTS!
