I would like to say "Thank you" to Rebekah Hagstrom the headmaster. She had the drive to start Liberty in 2003 and has not let up fighting for the education of our kids. I am extremely thankful that my kids have Liberty, and I know it is because of her.
This school has more deeply dedicated teachers than I have seen anywhere. They are not there to get a paycheck, but to educate the next generation. They work together to make it as effective as they can. They hold higher degrees that could get them much more salary at a public school, but they choose to be at Liberty where teachers can actually teach because the students want to learn.
This is a rigorous program. There are difficult projects like the speech meet, science fair, and theses that might feel too hard for the student from the outside. The magic happens when you see their face after they have completed them. They have now acquired a skill that will stay with them forever. It makes the more difficult tasks they will experience as adults like a piece of cake. I know because my graduate has told me.
Students call all teachers by Mr. or Mrs. and there is an understanding of respect for teachers. They also require that the students respect each other and will address it if they do not. Property is respected as well.
There is a constant presentation of "look around you" and see where there is a need. They involve the students in caring for the school, setting up for events, caring for the younger classmates and privilege for a family feeling.
Yes! Every area of the school is working on character development. My sons are focused on the character traits they are learning in their morning assembly and there is a constant connection to the Bible and how God would want us to act. This is daily. This happens in class, at recesses, in gym and even in the sports teams. If there is an issue of poor character it is addressed.
Liberty is a school where they love the Lord and try to do their best to honor Him and His children. No school is perfect, but when one tries as hard as they do to respect the parents rights and provide the best classical Christian education they deserve a "great" rating. All I could hope for as a parent is to have a place for my three children to go to where they will be safe, loved by all their teachers, known by name by every student and staff, and prayed for. This is a complete program pre-school through 12th and I have already had one graduate that now is prepared for adulthood, communicates extremely well, is respectful, and is a hard worker. I know I have Liberty to thank for that.
