Liberty is a great place to grow in your faith as well as your education. I was saved through this school, during a class period that I had not even given the teacher a warning. I returned to class with no note, but the teacher excused me when he found out why I missed. This school has helped me grow spiritually and mentally, as well as physically with its dominant sports program. Liberty Christian school is a great place for all ages.

I met one of their graduates last night at Sonnys. He graduated in the early 90s and was about to retire from the US Air Force. Very sharp young man. He said his mother taught at the school for a while and said it was a great school and he had attended there from k5 to graduating. A place where a students wants to attend for his whole life speaks volumes to me!

Both of my sons graduated from Liberty and went on to graduate from college as well. They received a good Christian education from LCS. They are both successful, productive citizens in society today. The administrator of the school is Asian, he was a missionary to Puerto Rico, and his daughter was severely handicapped so I doubt very seriously that the school is prejudiced. The church that the school is associated with has built forty-five church buildings for poor congregations in Africa and other places around the world which proves that they have a heart for all people. Any negative comments along these lines are totally unwarranted.

A few of these reviews are fabricated. No teacher has ever been fired. This is a great place. A distinctively Christian education in a safe, family environment.

Great staff and student body. As someone who has lived in Sanford for 25+ years I have seen a lot from our formerly small town. I am not going to bash other schools from the area, but I am consistently impressed with the graduating class of LCS. Marines, Navy Seals, Lockheed Martin, educators, pastors, and other great professions come out from this school year after year. I read a few of the previous reviews and while I don't know the details of every situation, I can say the school is on the uptrend with enrollment and to my knowledge, has never fired any staff. Also, there is a good mix of all genders and races. So, back to my original comment - great staff and great student body. If I had school aged children they would be attending LCS.

After we left the school, we ran into one of the teachers who was fired because the school was having financial problems. She said that they've had shocking behavior issues that one would not usually associate with a Christian school. While they will fire good teachers because of money, they'll also let anybody into the school for the same reason. I understand that Pastors don't make much but I really wish they'd stay out of the education arena if the quality is not there either educationally or spiritually. Please get on your face before God, get some Holy Spirit power in your preaching, and try to change the community that way. Win them to the Lord and disciple them- that is the Great Commission. That is how to build a church- not through a school whose enrollment is padded through government handouts...

I am currently a High school senior at LCS and I can say without a shadow of doubt it has been one of the best experiences I have ever had. There are some accusations of the school showing special treatment to some because of race or sports. This is absolutely false. Being a Hispanic gentleman myself, I have not felt any hostility coming from any of the staff here because of my ethnicity,or because of my lack of physical talent. Bullying of any kind is prohibited. Some may say that we at LCS are not accredited. I have personally, as have all students and parents who have entered our schools office, have seen the certificate of accreditation from the American Association of Christian Colleges and Schools International, with a current date stamped on it. Some would have you believe that our educational program is sub-par to that of other schools, and that the students are not prepared for education in other locations. However this is also false. I took my S.A.T for the first time as a junior in June and scored well above average. In all LCS is not for everyone, but it truly does strive for excellence and I recommend it to all looking for a great school.

I agree with the parent that gave this school one star. Some christian schools are biased and very segragated within their own system, so I believe this parent is telling the truth about what really is going on in this school. Shame on them.

My children went there for a few years. I was very disappointed. My children were treated like outcasts not by students but by teachers and administrators. They are not accredited as we were told at interview. My son had to take remedial classes when he started public school because of this. Teachers only gave special attention if the parents worked there or if the child was on sports team. They did not care about academics or the child's emotional well being. I was told that if I didn't like the way they ran things I could leave. My son was scolded many times for his hair barely touching his eyebrows or ears when a popular boy had hair covering his ears and was allowed to color it even though it was not allowed in the handbook. My son was talked badly to by teachers even words we don't use at home and they call themselves Christians?????? They treat you differently because of your race as well. Also we found out from a grad from this school that that student who was a a plus student had to take remedial classes at a community college before taking college courses. I would not send my dog to this school.

Liberty Christian School is a terrific school! This will be my fifth year at Liberty, and I am looking forward to whatever this year brings. It's great to learn from a Christian perspective, and I can rest assured that I am safe and in good hands with a wonderful staff and student body. The school is extremely welcoming and is a great, sheltered enviroment for children of all ages.

I was a student here, and I enjoyed my years. Teachers became friends and leaders as well as taught boundaries and lessons that can be used outside the classroom.

This was my daughters first year at LCS. I am so glad that she has come to this environment. She was treated very well. They made her feel at home as well as I as her parent. I know schools have their flaws, but I am very happy with the school.

I enjoyed working for LCS as a teacher. I felt the faculty and staff challenged the students both in education and in athletics, but I appreciated the Christ-centered focus the most. LCS is a great example of how small Bible based private schools should operate.

We have had nothing but a fantastic experience at LCS. Our kids have attended since Kindergarten and is in 2nd and 5th grade respectively. The education is balanced between academic excellence, spiritual maturity and fostering a healthy body.

My son has been at LCS since preschool and is now in high school. It is a wonderful school. I love the family atmosphere and the way that the teachers and administration care about my child as an individual. I have never considered removing my child from this school and plan for him to graduate from Liberty.

Facts: My child's 3rd grade teacher was fired during Christmas, and my daughter spent the rest of that year with the 2nd graders in the same class all being taught by 1 teacher. In 4th grade, the class again had 2 grades in the same class and my daughter spent several hours on homework every night. My children, who had won both behavior and highest GPA awards were kicked out of the school because we questioned the school's leadership. The Pastor of the church publicly scolded me because my wife had a question. They would only give standardized testing to voucher kids because they had to. The school was never accredited and misrepresented its accreditation status on its website. All facts.

Had a student in the school for 3 years. Each year the school declined. Teachers nor principal would return phone calls. This place seems to be more focused on sports appearances than actual education. My child learned absolutely nothing. Although he/she passed with good grades, once enrolled in another school and tested some classes had to be repeated. I would have been better off with a public school.

Good school. I have had multiple children in this school for several years. Though not everything is perfect, you know that the staff and principal are working hard to help the students. The principal really is dedicated to helping students.

i had one child graduate from Liberty and currently have children attending. I find the staff very dedicated and willing to offer help to students whenever necessary. My first child to graduate graduated with honors and my current children are doing well. I feel it's like anything. You get back what you put in. The same goes for students and school.

I have had 2 students in this school. My 1st went from K5 through 12th. Wow! She is doing fantastic in college. She was able to breeze through 2 years in one. Thank God for the teachers at Liberty through the years. If she has a problem at college, she knows she can pick up the phone and call Brother Simpson for help. That alone is worth every penny we every spent and still spending.

I have two children attending Liberty. One is in 11th and the other one in 7th grade. My children love the shool and I myself have been pleased with it. There is always room for improvement but that is with anything. My daughter been there since 9th grade and my son since 6th grade and I don't regret my choice of that school in the least.

This School is Horrible! There is a lack of control of the students and they are very unorganized about things. Teachers do not discipline properly, and are very passive about absenses tardies and missed assignments. With the exception of 1 teacher, No one would return my phone calls. It was a very stressful year!

My son went here for his 9th and 10th grade years. With the exception of two teachers, the other teachers would not even return my phone calls or emails. There are other specific problems with individuals. My heart was saddened by this experience and I truly hope that nobody else has to endure this kind of treatment. God bless!
