Students and teachers lined up for a photo during their schools-at-war flag-raising at Linlee School on April 18, 1945. The flag was presented by the Linlee PTA because 90 percent of the student body had made monthly purchases of war stamps. The school was the first in the county to reach the 90 percent mark. The school began as Greendale High School in 1911 and was Fayette County’s first consolidated school. The name Linlee is a derivation of the names of President Abraham Lincoln and Gen. Robert E. Lee. Linlee Elementary, which closed at the end of the 2007-2008 school year, is now The Learning Center at Linlee. The school, which is of Georgetown Road in Northern Fayette County, serves students in grades 8-12 who thrive in a nontraditional school setting. The school is designed for kids whose learning style is characterized by a different pace, who need a smaller classroom setting or who want a more hands-on approach to instruction.
