Original Story Ran on Vestavia Voice
February 12, 2024

Character.org, a national organization advocating for character education in schools, recently named Vestavia Hills Elementary Liberty Park as one of two 2024 Schools of Character in Alabama.

The other school selected this year was Davis-Emerson Middle School in Cottondale.

Each School of Character was chosen based on demonstrated excellence in 11 nationally accepted principles of character education. The principles include key indicators on creating a caring school community where everyone feels they belong, providing students with opportunities to practice and reflect on their character strengths, and engaging families and communities as partners in the school’s character initiative.
