Liberty Elementary teachers and staff welcome students back to school!

Liberty Elementary is a Title I school located in historic Franklin, Tennessee. We proudly serve a diverse community of learners. Every member of our staff and community support, encourage, and empower our students through strong relationships with families, researched based instruction and intervention, and a focus on social emotional health.

"A rich, robust, well-resourced public education is one of the best routes out of poverty and a pathway to prosperity." As president of the American Federation of Teachers, Randi Weingarten's words embody the philosophy of Liberty's dedicated faculty and staff. The Liberty community embraces and celebrates the diversity of its population. It has students attending from all socio-economic backgrounds, and 32% of our enrollment is comprised of Hispanic families. The faculty and staff are committed to ensuring that all students and families feel welcomed and are equally determined to deliver high quality, effective instruction to all students.

On any given day, you will see the faculty and staff greeting students as they enter the building each morning, students engaged in high quality instruction, and a positive culture of inclusion throughout the building. You will see student commentators of all ethnicities leading WLES, the school's daily televised morning program. We have programs in place and have partnered with local organizations in order to ensure that all students are fed, clothed, and their social and emotional needs are met. The Liberty community understands that when those needs are met, then successful learning can take place.
