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.
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.
It is a fair amount, unless he doesn't get his regular classwork done. Then it can feel like a lot, because he will have to bring that home as well. He has to make sure he is using his time wisely in class. I would say it is fair though.
I feel they do their best to be fair and just. My sons teacher made a mistake that hurt my sons feelings. He was quick to apologize and seek forgiveness, then took the steps to rectify not only the situation but the relationship with my son.
Overall a wonderful experience. At times my children have struggled, as they would at any school, but at Liberty they are encouraged to keep working at it to the best of their ability. The teachers take the time to see where my kids need help and do what they can. If my kids are willing to accept help, their teachers have been been willing to fight to help them achieve success.
They give more homework than the public schools but less than the charter schools. How can a parent know except by feedback from their kid which is hardly objective. Some parents want more homework others want less......sadly the schools standard seems to fluctuate with parent feedback not administrative goals.
