Good teachers, except for a few bad ones. If you attend this school, you'll figure it out soon enough. The courses and electives are chosen randomly, so you or your kids most likely not get the course they wanted, as I have gotten. They have a very strict dress code, you can't even have dyed hair. The school work is very stressful, and if you get work, you may have about 1-2 nights to complete the work that was mentioned. For example: (Hi kids! You have a project that you MUST decorate and label a poster using MLA format with your sources.) And you have brief mentions of what you are really supposed to do! As I asked a couple of my fellow students, they also said that the school work is very stressful also. Middle school starts at 8:00 A.M. Elementary School starts even earlier. You barely have enough time to get a full night's rest. As I often find myself tired every morning when I get up to get ready for school. I hope if you are new to Madison, you will read my review and consider putting your child into the system. I would recommend homeschooling or a private school. Please consider my review before putting your child in this school system. Sincerely, Student of Liberty

We are hugely pleased with LMS. The 8th grade teachers each take a personal interest, the leadership is right on and involved, and my daughter enjoys going to school. Thank you, Liberty, for all you do to help our children learn and get ready for high school.

Excellent school!! My our family transferred here to madison last year from England. We put our daughter in Liberty and she loved it! She even forgot it was a public school because she hated it because she was in a private school there. All the teachers are really great and i am really satisfied!

My oldest child spent three years at Liberty, and my middle child is in his first year there. We have not had any issues at all. At one point my oldest was slipping behind in language so a meeting with two teachers, a counselor, and a special needs teacher was scheduled. That meeting went really well, we all expressed concerns and appropriate actions were put in place. On the other hand, my child that just started exceeds standards in all areas. One of his teachers actually took the time to send a 'snail' mailed postcard to our home to complement this child. So, all around I would recommend.

My child had attended a wonderful charter school from K-6th grade. I was apprehensive about sending him to middle school but it has turned out to be a wonderful experience. So far, the teacher he has had are all great and most are very communicative. The office staff and principal are very nice and helpful. I love LMS and so does my son.

Having experienced all 4 of my children attend a carefully selected Christian private school and one of my 4 children, the deciding factor of choosing this enviroment, let me say the smartest move I have made in their education was moving them to LMS. At this point, I was faced with making the most critical and difficult decision in my life. My oldest son who suffers from Asperger's Autism, which is the reason why we chose private school and why we left private school (reason: due to bullying) I removed him from private school in 6th grade and home schooled him until 9th. I was then blessed with the faculty of LMS & Ms. Linda Johnson. They in one year made a unconfident child, a whole new child. I would recommend LMS to any family without a hesitation!

This school does seem really good on paper. The school's standings was the highest contributing factor in our decision to move to this area. However, overall a little disappointed. Teacher quality: very few truly concerned teachers (ineffective). However, my child did get two great math teachers. Principal leadership: Principal seems to dictate to parents versus discussing. Good Extracurricular activities. Good parental involvement for a middle school. Good Safety and discipline. But I do agree with some others, much too much favoritism/elitism going on in this school. I can only recommend Liberty in contrast to the other schools in district.

While on paper the school appears to be top-notch I found it very different after we enrolled our children there. The class sizes are terrible, the entire school system is overcrowded -yet there are no plans for expansion. I ended up pulling both our kids from this school to ensure they would receive a higher academic education. The children are treated as though they are troub;le from day one, limited privledges and less than supportive staff. My children felt taht they were being told they would fail before they had a chance to try. I would not recommend this school for families moving to the area.

I was so happy to be able to transfer my children out of Madison City Schools. I would not recommend this school to any family.

We found Liberty Middle School to be an excellent school. The faculty and staff are top notch and, for those who want to learn, provide a quality educational experience. I highly recommend this school.

We have found Liberty Middle School to be a very positive experience for our child. While no school is ever perfect, we have found that Liberty has worked with us when problems arose and in fact is working to improve the environment for all of the student body. Many changes have taken and are in the process of taking place, all of which should only serve to make Liberty an even more enriching experience for the students, parents and administration. The school boundries have recently been changed in the city and many families are very disappointed to be changing schools. I would highly reccomend Liberty Middle School to any family coming to Madison...Welcome.

This school is all about the faculty and administration. It's most obvious that students come second and have extremely limited privileges. There is much too much favoritism towards certain students while certain others are found to be at 'fault' instead of being seen as having a 'problem.' This shows extreme immaturity in this school's faculty and administration. The office help is the same way as the latter. We have transferred our child to another middle school in Madison as the situation had become intolerable and caused extreme stress to our child. I do not recommend this school district (Liberty Middle School) to anyone who is looking for a home in Madison.
