My duaghter has been at Liddell Elementary for six years. This review will not be a complimentary as the rest. My daughter has been struggling ever since the forth grade with reading and math. Talking with Liddell's administration is very frustrating because it always comes down to the parents not involved enough with their childs education or the child is not smart enough. What is very concerning is that the administration will not accept any responsibility for the education of our children. Four weeks into the school year Leddell recieved transfer students from other schools so my daughter was pulled out of her class to create another 6th grade class. Every day is a struggle because these transfer students have caused many problems in and out of the class room and the teacher is gone two to three times per week as he is involved in sports. So I am spending 350 dollars per month on outside teachers in hopes of giving my daugter the education she has a right to she is not receiving from Liddell. Good luck parents.
We started at Liddell 4 years ago. Then i would have given a 5 star. I loved our principal year one. A new principal started year 2 of our school experience and she is ruining our school now. She is very overbearing and has a my way or the highway mentality. She does not return parent calls ever. I never see her interacting with the students or parents. She has alienated many of the parents at our school, usually the ones who ask any questions. Liddell does achieve high scores in academics, but it seems as though the creativity is being lost and our kids are only expected to do endless amounts of worksheets. The school moral is very bad this year. The teachers are great so far. I hope we get new leadership.
Norman Liddell is right the right place for your child. Although the class sizes may seem a little larger over the past few years the staff has always made accommodations to do there personal best with our children. We came to Liddell kindergarten and 3rd grade for my family and both children graduated 6th grade honor students with 4.0 or higher GPA scoring the highest on bench mark testing ever. Even with recent cut backs in the district with faculty change in principals and removing a VP position parents are encouraged to help and keep great relations with teachers. I am proud, grateful an honored for the teaching staff also to say my little ones are Liddell Lions for life. Congrats again to the girls reigning basketball championship my daughter truly enjoyed her years with you coach Scarberry.
Absolutely love Liddell! Comparing to a few other schools in the central district my husband and I really like Liddell! My daughters attends this school and so will my youngest in a couple of years! All the staffs and parents are great!
Faculty and Pricipal look out for each other and not the students. So far I have a total of 5 parents who feel the same. They told me one thing and did another. Watch out for third grade teachers.
All faculty staffs are very helpful and the environment school areas are safe for my children to attend the school. If my child have any problem with other children, teachers and principal takes action quickly. Thanks Liddell!
My daughter attended Kindergarten with Mrs. Rodgers and I have to say that she is an amazing teacher. She and Mrs. McClelland make a great team of morning and afternoon Kindergarten teachers. They coordinate and plan everything together, which makes it easier for the kids. Mrs. Rodgers makes learning fun and expects excellence from her students. The office is very helpful and the GLC and Principal are very active and on top of it.
Liddell meets student academic and co corricular needs. The staff is excellent. It has a very good if not excellent environment. There is very good student teacher interaction.
My children and I both love Liddell. The teachers, principal and VP are all so involved and wonderful. We just moved to a new district and I am saddened that we will have to transfer. I would say to anyone that is looking for an A+++ school, you have found one!
This school is amazing, and it absolutly has to do with how the principal, VP, staff and the teachers care for these students! There is also a lot of parent involvment! This school is no doubt looking out for the students. It's like a big loving family, and it shows!
This school is awesome! My daughter has excelled in reading and math obtaining an almost perfect report card. The teaching staff has been great! Do I recommend this school...YES!
Great school overall. Teachers are A+, Academics and activities are organized and fun. I would like to see stronger supervision and discipline with the children when they are not in class.
Liddell is an A plus school. Mrs.Rodgers is a fabulous teacher, she is highly recommended.
An outstanding school. Teachers, parents and administration work together to create an amazing learning enviroment. Outstanding programs outside the classroom are available to students as well.
My niece went to Liddell Elementary and it was an excellent school. There was a wide variety of extracurricular activities for her to be involved in and the academics were outstanding. The staff is wonderful and the parents were very involved.
I am a parent of a kindergardner at this school and the quality of academic programs for kindergardners is amazing and Mrs. Carrie Chandler is highly recomended.
My son recently started Kindergarten and I could not be more impressed. The school is exemplary.
Principal, Vice Principal, Teachers, Staff, and Parents all working together, for the good of the students. Wonderful school, almost feels private.
This school provides a wonderful educational experience to all of its students.
