The teachers are rude and want to parent rather than teach the lessons. The office staff is unorganized and sometimes unprofessional. The principle is down to earth and listens to parents but I don't understand how he has not passed these qualities on to his staff. Nobody responds to EDSBY which is for parents to connect to the teachers. If you have time to constantly be at the school then this may be the school for you because that is the only way to get anything resolved. THEY DO NOT RESPOND TO ANY CONCERNS!! That is why I had to go over everybody and talk directly to the principle. I had to catch him outside on a early release day because he had not received the 3 messages I left for him.

This school is the worst school my daughter ever attended. The teachers are rude and give her a hard time. They do not listen to a parents concerns and lock kids out of class. My daughter was a high honor student with no complaints from any other school but this one here is so unprofessional. The kids really dont have anyone to talk to about issues and calling the district is no help because nothing changes. Don't be surprised if your child comes home saying the teachers wont let them use the bathroom, call them names, makes fun of them, has sarcastic remarks, locks them out of class etc. School may have high ratings but is the worst school we've ever dealt with Its not worth your kids being mistreated

Liberty is a great school. The principal, staff, and PTSA are outstanding. My child is an 8th grader; started in 6th grade so I have definitely given it some time before writing a review. We spent a lot of time researching other options before deciding on Liberty, our neighborhood school. If you are on the fence, do your research and compare the classes, sports, clubs, etc. that Liberty offers with what the private, charter, and magnet schools offer. Your child will have many great opportunities at Liberty to grow and excel academically and socially. There are children from all walks of life at Liberty, which I think perhaps scares some parents? Kids have a great opportunity here to interact with and learn about so many different cultures and backgrounds - this is a positive!

My daughter is a 6th grader this year. I was very worried about sending her to middle school. I have to say that the teachers and staff at Liberty are great. The Principal is outstanding. I am very satisfied with Liberty Middle School.

This school was such a wonderful school i dreamed about going here it was an a school and i loved it. Until i found out they were having a uniform policy. I have been dreaming of not wearing uniform that is why i was so excited. So i thought about switching schools and so i did i am happy wear i am and nothing is going to bring me back to liberty middle school(unless they change the policy). I am a strait A student i got strait A's across my whole report card so any school would be more than happy to let me go to their school and so that is what i did Sincerely, Unknown

This school is not terrible Of course all your schools will have clicks (racial and social regarding this school) As far as academics go, they definitely excel in most of what they do. From what I say, I found it to be a little competitive. I love school but it was taught harshly, and I got stressed easily. The teachers push you to be excellent, but not in the best way in my opinion. The school is great but the work load is pretty big. I wouldn't have time to do much other than to do homework and sleep after school and sometimes on the weekend If I wanted all A's (which I barely made). Most of the work I was doing was busy work and make up work b/c my teacher was behind in her curriculum. When all is said and done I don't remember a lot of the work I did b/c there was SO much. I don't remember too much of what I learned. But I do remember the experience.

My son went to Liberty Middle School during his 6th and half of 7th grade school year, and I really appreciate this school. The school he is attending currently, is not compared to Liberty. I am thinking of moving my son out of his current school, because I don't see the commitment from the teachers there as I did with Liberty. The principal ensures that the school is ran at it's best and the teachers really care about the students education. It's a great school. Way to go Liberty!!

My second child will be graduating from Liberty in a week's time. How I will miss this school! Liberty Middle School is phenomenal in how much it fosters a family, loving environment. It has a large student population but feels like a small family oriented school. I know so many of the teachers, students and parents. The teachers are in touch with you every step of your child's academic performance. Excellent academic curriculum, advanced, honors, extra curricular activities. I love being around the school. It is a warm, welcoming environment. I told one parent that I am going to be so sad when my child leaves, I might have to adopt another middle school child, so there is reason to show up every morning.I did not want to move out of the area because I wanted to keep my child at Liberty. Liberty pride runs deep.

Fantastic school. Liberty is a model school and one of the few real bright spots in public education. Solid administration, really strong and supportive faculty, and high academic standards. What a formula.

Liberty is an awesome school where academics and the success of every student is taken ito consideration. Liberty offers a regular, advanced, honors, and gifted track. Liberty has been an 'A' since it's existence. The music program is phenomenal which includes chorus, band, and orchestra. The extracurricular activities are excellent, and promote team work. The parental involvement is phenomenal during all times of the year. The overall administration is excellent, and the teachers try and treat each child as if they were their own. When you walk on Liberty's campus, without a doubt you will sense something special about this school.

Liberty is a wonderful school with excellent leadership. What a shame it will be for that school when the it is a victim of the re-districting.
