Great school. Son is in first grade and making great academic progress. He has attended since kindergarten, transferred to school mid year and transitioned smoothly since the first day. Awesome!!!!! School is fun for my son who also enjoys the different classroom activities incorporating the different celebrations observed throughout the year. Son participates in before and after school programs, both on campus and off, and we have not had any issues. My son's teachers have been extraordinary and the friendly office staff much appreciated.

Principal banned imaginative play from recess for all grades. Parents are pulling their kids out of this school.

I was reading some of the reviews and usually don't write them online, but i think for the parents that wrote about the discrimination issues for the non hispanic children that they need to take a closer look at the school this year. My son started Kinder this year and is loving it, the class is mixed and well balanced his teacher is phenomenal, very involved and caring. Also his classroom as blocks and other toys for them to play with it is very colorful and inviting. The parents are all very friendly and when it comes to getting the children ahead of the learning curve i am impressed with the quality of materials and amount they learn in a almost playful way very quickly. His teachers approach on the curriculum is extraordinary and i have to say school has changed a lot since my time but i am very impressed with the staff, leadership and their academic programs that give all students a chance to learn at a pace that is exeptional

I give this school 2 stars because of the beautiful campus in a nice neighborhood, and the other parents are friendly. However, we had several issues from the beginning. The principal was always very reluctant to allow observations (other schools were open & welcoming). She rarely returns e-mails, and she eliminated indoor play or any play-based learning in Kinder in order to improve district assessments. However they would play cartoon videos during quiet times or indoor recess since there were no blocks, play dough, or anything. One of the Spanish kinder teachers told me "creativity is for at home." The worst part was when my Kinder slipped out of class unnoticed. I happened to find him at the rear gate of the school. No one was looking for him. Teacher did not inform the office. At a later meeting with the principal she said she sent a parent to notify the office, which turned out to be false. The principal did not seem concerned. When I discovered this I took him out of the school. She said a kid goes missing every year but they always find him. I hesitated leaving this review, but I feel other families should know so they can make an informed choice.

Excellent school with very dedicated teachers. Test scores are consistently high and parents are very involved.

This is my 1st year at Liberty and my child's teacher seems to have good classroom control. I feel that my child is safe at the school and enjoys going. The parking is a nightmare. Kindergarten parents have to park and walk their student into the classroom and do the same for pick up. There is a HUGE bus area that is only used for Special Ed students. This area could be used for Kindergarten drop off and pick up to help with the ebb and flow of the parking lot traffic. My student is in the English only class and the class is small--I cannot complain.

My daughter's 1st year here has been great so far. The principal was friendly and took time out of her busy day to answer my questions. The curriculum and programs available seem very well thought out. We're looking forward to an outstanding year.

This school is outstanding, and the staff is amazing. I can't believe how dedicated the teachers, principal and even the office staff are. I normally don't post on message boards like these because typically it's just the crackpots that do, but you need to give credit where credit is due. Great job Liberty. Thanks for making my children's education your passion.

I love this school. My son has had great teachers while at Liberty. His teachers are firm and have high expectations. I think the staff really cares about the kids and the Principal knows the students by name. You will always see many parent volunteers at the school.

This is my son's first year at Liberty so far I have been very disappointed.I feel the principal does not really care she never returns phone calls. I feel there is alot of discrimination at the school for non-hispanic students.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted June 14, 2010

I would agree there seems to be a lot of discrmination at the school for non-hispanic students. My daughter has had several issues with the unfair rules that are placed upon herby the yard duty and teachers.

I am very impressed with the teachers in Liberty. They set the bar high. My daughter is a 2nd grader in the Spanish Immersion Program, she loves her school. My understanding is that the English teachers are great as well. Principal knows all of the students and seems very open and approachable. PTSA works hard and do great things for the school. Drop off and pick up areas need improvement.

Posted October 26, 2009

The school has great teachers and staff. The family events are good especially movie night, Liberty Laps - the simple family events. The PTSA isn't as available/cooperative as it used to be - but what does that matter. The drop off/pick up at this school is awful - the design is ridiculous. The principal and school police support on this issue is mis-directed and effectively nonexistent.

My daughter has had a great experience at Liberty so far. The teachers have been great and I really enjoy the activities they offer. My only complaint is the parking and drive-through situation. There has to be a better set-up for drop-offs/pick-ups!

Posted August 18, 2009

Maybe the parents who are bashing the PTSA should get involved and help. My son has been at Liberty since it opened 5 years ago and I think they do an amazing job!

The Principal is excellent on following up with issues involving her students and knows many of the children on a first name basis. She is professional, caring, and courteous. Unfortunately the yard duties seem to discriminate against non-Hispanic children. There needs to be more ethnic balance.

This is an awesome school. I have a 2nd grader in the Spanish Immersion program. The teachers go above and beyond. Students receive encouragement and guidance within a very strictly structured classroom. The students excel in these classes. The staff is experienced, personable, and innovative. The principal is involved and knows all of the students. We enjoy the ptsa family events. Especially the formal dance, talent show and movie nights. Our kids love the Liberty Laps - what a great way to start the day. The Immersion program gets lots of attention, but the English teachers are outstanding as well.

My son is in the 4th grade at Liberty. I am very impressed with his teacher and the support he receives in the classroom. As for the PTSA, they need help. Not very organized. Teachers are great and we believe we made a great choice for our child.

Teachers are really involved at Liberty. We love the dedication and drive the Spanish immersion teachers have. The principal is very hands on and involved in the classrooms, events and student follow-up. A great Arts History program is taught here. Some of the best SDC teachers and aides. The teachers offer after school help, Spanish classes, running clubs, speech.... Fun family events: movie nights, festival, talent show, art gala, formal family dance, glow party. Pleasant family dynamic at all events. The office staff is the most helpful I've ever seen. This school has a practical and effective anti-bullying strategy. We are very comfortable here. We have an interdistrict transfer from another local school.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
