Libertyville Elementary District 70, with its strong academic foundation, is located in the northern suburbs, about 35 miles north of Chicago, in Lake County, Illinois. Libertyville is proud of its warm neighborhood feel and strong heritage as a family-oriented community, and is an exceptional place to raise children. Boasting a quaint and prosperous downtown, residents enjoy a summer Farmer's Market, Dickens of a Holiday winter event, recently remodeled library, hometown festivals and parades, as well as a strong parks and recreation organization and the charm of the local David Adler Music and Arts Center.

|With a profound commitment to 21st Century teaching and learning, District 70 students and staff focus on six components of the Illinois State Board of Education and D70 Applications of Learning: Communication, Working on Teams, Self-Direction, Solving Problems, Using Technology and Making Connections. Through the Applications of Learning, students demonstrate and deepen their understanding of basic knowledge and skills. As defined, these applied learning skills cross academic disciplines and reinforce the importance of the disciplines. The ability to use these skills will greatly influence students' success in school, in the workplace and in the community.|
