"Creating a safe, positive learning environment so students can become life-long learners and productive citizens in a global society"

Lawrence Free State High School, the city's second high school campus, opened in 1997. It sits on 77 acres of land located in northwest Lawrence. The school's name honors the role the city of Lawrence played in opposing slavery so the territory of Kansas could enter the union as a free state in 1861. Free State serves students in grades 9-12.
