I HATE THIS SCHOOL!!!!!!!! it's the worst school i have ever been to. the kids are really rude, and the teachers don't teach anything because they are too busy getting everyone in trouble.


Posted March 30, 2012

This is the worst school in the high desert. They have a major bullying problem. Teacher look the other way instead of dealing with the problem. They have proctors on the playground that are supposed to watch the kids. They don't do anything. Overall I just really think no one cares!!!!!!!!

I think the school overall is great but do to budget cuts not what it should be. My daughter has been going there almost 3 school years now and has enjoyed it very much. I think the parent involvement should be greater but I also think the school should work on a stronger PTO.

Love the preschool. The teachers of the preschool are amazing! my child has grown academically and socially. Teacher janon an kristy are funny and the children love them!


Posted January 3, 2008

I am a parent of a special ed child there. My concerns are that every child is on there own. Teachers must get together for the students. I feel that the special ed teacher needs to be more educated. And also more trained. The whole staff needs to have a better plan to help our students to be succesful. We are rating at a 4 what does this say about us????? We need together to make this better for everyone.

Overall I believe Liberty is okay. There is definitely room for improvement. What I see to be the problem with the school is lack of parental support for learning. Also, the school has had the misfortune of acquiring students who are academically behind. (no fault of the current school) There is much work to be done, however I think they are headed in the right direction.

Has gone down hill rapidly. My student needs help and fails routinly, to be placed without question to the next grade. Teachers want to place everything on the parent and never offer resources for help. If you have the chance and money transfer out of district or pay a private school. Under the former principle the school was great and I was happy with the results of my older student. My child currently enrolled will not be attending next year and I'm paying hundreds of dollars in tutoring to get here to grade level. Think about your tax dollars at work!

The teachers at this school are wonderful. They are very helpful and have a lot of resources. The only thing I worry about is how some of the personnel handle behavior problems.

Perfect school literally looks nice and the staff is amazing

Liberty elementary is an okay school. It has overcrowded classes and children that need extra attention in certain subjects don't get it. There are no tutoring classes offered before or after school for extra help either. All this school offers is a homework club which is really after school babysitting. They don't offer music, art, or sports. They do have a before and after school care program for working parents.

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.
