I really enjoy working with a group of teachers that are dedicated to excellence. They go above and beyond what is expected to help each student reach their true potential. "Excellence in Everything" is our goal!

The schools atmosphere is tremendous. They treat all parents and community members with the respect that is deserved along with a drive to improve community ties. Regular cleanup's around the neighborhood and ever-lasting community building events composed to create a great environment. This school is always improving in ways they can reach out to students and parents to get more involved.

The teachers at this school are all very hard working individuals, ready to discuss your child's needs and give assistance. From top to bottom it is a very caring school that will make sure every need is filled. From a caring staff that caters to students before school, to a fantastic after school program, the school is designed to meet the needs of a 21st century learner. While moving their overall school grade is important, students come first at this school. Their saying sums up the feel of this school: "From good to great". Good is just a starting point, greatness is what they strive to achieve for all parties involved with the school.

As a staff member of this school for the last two years I can defiantly say I have seen some great changes. Teachers spend a lot of time working with individual students in the classrooms and struggling students get additional support from various intervention programs. State test scores are on the rise from previous years and the academic rigor is beginning to take shape. The front office staff is welcoming and has helped me with any issues that have come up. Administration works hard to make sure teachers and students have what they need to perform at a high level in the classroom. My only knock is I wish I could see newer technology being used in each classroom but I have seen some positive strides in this area. Overall I am very happy working at this campus and would recommend it to any parent looking for a good school.

Liberty Traditional Charter School is a place where teachers work together, not only with their own grade level, but also with grades above and below to make sure that students are receiving consistency as well as the academics they need to succeed. It continues to grow, not only numerically, but in quality. Enjoying the people I teach and those with whom I work has kept me here. I enjoy the family environment.

Started out my children loved this school. Too bad it took less that 2 months for the problem to start. When it comes to handling student discipline, they are quick to blame the parents and children for the failures of the staff. Bullying takes place on a daily basis and if it is reported in confidentiality, let's just say it doesn't stay that way. My children's grades have dropped since they started attending and every day they beg us not to make them go back. I have never seen them so unhappy to go to school as they have always loved school. I will not be sending them back next year. This has been a horrible experience.

Liberty Traditional Charter School is a standards based school and has been as long as I've been teaching there.

Liberty is not a standards based school nor do they individualize for each child's instructional levl which most public schools have caught on to nowadays. Charter schools have problems in this are because thye are not under the same guideines as public. Be very careful of Charter schools in general .They are not lal bad, but do your research. To the parent whose child did not not read in third grade? So where were you in k, 1 and 2?

liberty is a small school so you can really work closely with the teacher. They know all students on a first name basis. My daughter wasn't doing well and did not like to attend school when we transfered her there, along with hard work and alot of teacher incouragement, she is now doing very well. I am also impressed on how good citizenship is a number one concern.

My daughter has attended LTCS for the last two years. Her first grade experinence impressed me enough to want to continue there for her 2nd grade year. This has led to one disappointment after another. I've been informed that the first quarter of the school year is review of 1st grade, and she's still bringing home spelling words like 'if' and 'she'. The math homework she brings home asks her to count off the tick marks and mark how many there altogether. I'm quite disappointed in LTCS.

We pulled our son out of public school at 3rd grade because he couldn't read...he didn't even know the entire alphabet! We chose liberty because we were desperate - and they provide bus service and lunches. Within 2 years, our son was reading at grade level & his self-esteem was 150% better. Thank you so much!

Liberty did a good job teaching my kids to read in elementary level. Their elementary teaching staff is only satisfactory. The middle school program needs much improvement. The teachers do not handle discipline issues well. What started out to be a great program, I am sad to say, really has taken a turn toward mediocrity.

My daughter has been attending LTCS since third grade, she has been there 3 years and going on the fourth. She has not only made huge academic improvement, she loves going to school and being involved with the classroom. Mr Robinson is not only a awesome person, he has taken the extra step to getting the right teachers who care about there students succeeding in life and not just on tests. LTCS is very family oriented, they go to great lengths to make sure there students are safe and comfortable.

I was very happy with Liberty Traditional for several years. The elementary portion of the school is excellent. Unfortunately, the middle school leaves much to be desired. Granted, the school is still relatively new, but the students are exposed to an entirely new way of learning, which is good, but the teachers in the middle school lack patience. I found them confrontational and rude. Parent/teacher conferences are done with all the teachers present, and only one teacher speaking. I became very frustrated with the middle school, and filed several complaints. None of which were addressed. I have children attending the elementary school for the rest of the year, but I will remove them from the school before they reach middle school. I truly hope that changes are made at Liberty Traditional Charter School!
