There are many wonderful things about Liberty and the school community, but I agree with another parent post that there is way too much focus on test scores. My daughter that has attended from Liberty from Kindergarten and is now in 3rd grade. She often has 1-2 hours of homework at night and is often stressed out by the pressure the school puts on her to perform. If your child is highly academic, this would be a good school for you. But if your child is more creative and responds better to alternative methods of learning, your child will struggle at Liberty. That said, I do believe that the teachers really care about their students and do their best within the framework that the school imposes to help the students succeed as best they can.
This school is fantastic! Between great administration, wonderful staff, and involved parents, the kids get a very strong start. They are taught respect and social skills in addition to the academic standards. I have three kids, two have graduated Liberty and as another Mom said 'they can tell the Liberty kids at the Jr. High'. I am very glad I chose Liberty to provide a strong foundation for my kids to build on.
We're new to Liberty Elemenatary and we're in Love with the school and staff. Yes, they have fabulous test scores; all 5 types of 2008 3rd grade test scores were in the top 10 of all North Bay county schools. Only 2 other schools in north bay counties finished in top 10 of all (5) 3rd grade test scores. The staff to student ratio of 46/198 is better then most private schools, our Kindergarten class size of 15 students makes us VERY happy. It's only the 3rd week of school and our teacher has already completed her student evaluations and is adjusting the cirriculum for the 5 more advanced students. The family involvement is very high. In our class there are almost too many parent volunteers for our teacher to schedule. The on-campus aftercare program and staff are fabulous, plus they allowed us to start 1 month before school started making the adjustment easy !
this school is over the top when it comes to test scores, that's all they care about, sad to see such great staff wasted on standardized test, there's more to a good education then timed tested and test scores.
As a former student, I learned a lot from Liberty. The teachers were very good and got to know you for who you are as a person and what your strengths and weaknesses were. I am glad that I went there.
I have three kids that went to Liberty for two years. We loved the school. It is a small, country school where parents and staff alike give their best efforts to make it a great environment for the kids. We found the teachers to be very professional and very loving. They really cared about the kids and the school. There is a lot of enthusiasm in the air over there. A great community to be involved with! And a great education for the kids.
