History and Facilities
Liberty Technology Magnet High School is the reality of a dream for the Jackson-Madison County School System. Former School Superintendent Roy Weaver, who had a vocational-technical educational background, began laying the foundation several years ago for a state-of-the-art high school where students could receive strong academics and, at the same time, have the opportunity to acquire advanced technical skills. The Central Office staff expanded the plan to initiate the "academy" concept for technology. With the suggestion of the school name by fifth-grader Lacy Littrell in August 2003, "Liberty" was born!
Liberty, a beautiful, 175,000 square foot complex, sits on forty-eight sprawling acres and is located on Ridgecrest Road Extended near several industrial businesses. The facility provides opportunities for practical observation and hands-on application for grades nine through twelve. Within the Liberty complex, there are sixty classrooms wired for internet access; three fully-equipped computer classrooms (each housing twenty-four student stations); a 30-station computer lab; 300 laptops and tablets; fifty-three classrooms equipped with Promethean boards; a library containing 21 internet accessible computer stations; school-wide wifi; a 999-seat auditorium; 3 greenhouses, a 2,150 capacity gymnasium; and a 1,600 capacity football stadium. Liberty also has its own soccer field, baseball field, softball field, marching band practice field, and field house. Our Culinary Arts department also operates its own restaurant, "A Taste of Liberty", that is open to the public.
