The National Blue Ribbon Schools program recognizes outstanding examples of great American schools. EPiC Elementary was awarded under the "Exemplary High Performing Schools" category.
"National Blue Ribbon Schools serve as models of effective school practices for state and district educators and other schools throughout the nation. A National Blue Ribbon School flag gracing a school's entryway or on a flagpole is a widely recognized symbol of exemplary teaching and learning," the U.S. Department of Education writes.
"EPiC" stands for "Every Person is Inspired to Create," and Liberty Public Schools is proud of how the community at EPiC Elementary is living out that statement. Students are empowered to be creative, equipped with an entrepreneurial and innovative spirit, and learn to engage with the community to make an impact.
Now, the community of learners, educators and staff at EPiC Elementary are being recognized nationally for what makes them great.
LPS is proud to have one of the nation's 297 National Blue Ribbon Schools for 2022 located right here. It is one of just eight in Missouri to receive the award.
