This is an amazing school. I have had three kids in this school over the past seven years. I love how the diversity level is increasing, as well as teaching different programs about many different kinds of cultures including awareness of special needs. This school also has a special ed department that hosts the biggest autism program in the district. My kids have learned so much more than a great education due to the many opportunities this school offers! Amazing group of staff, and kids!!!!
This school is not all it's cracked up to be. The material being taught may be advanced, but it seemed the teachers are pushing to get things done fast without making sure all the kids are actually learning and understanding. I'm seriously considering pulling my kids out. They've never ever had problems keeping up until coming to this school. The size of the school (approx. 900 students!) also makes it feel very impersonal; like your child is just a number being pushed through the system. The only standout positives in my opinion are the Spanish & Music programs; these truly seem to be catering to students of all levels.
Our daughter is a first grader and in her second year at liberty ridge. The teachers are amazing. Both her K teacher and her 1st grade teacher were in daily communication with parents as well as weekly newsletters, etc. They have leveled math at the first grade level based on topics (children are assessed before and after each unit) to ensure they are being appropriately challenged and the teachers are meeting the students needs. Excellent leadership. They added an assistant principal for the 2011-12 school year and this has has a very positive impact on the school. Office personnel are helpful and friendly.
Son in kindergarten. He loves the school. The kids are great. The teachers are very caring. There is alot of communication established between the teachers and parents. Very well organized in my opinion.
Please ignore the previous review. someone has their schools mixed up! Liberty Ridge Elementary is an excellent school all around. The teachers are brilliant, and very motivating. The work is challenging for the students, yet it is a very caring environment.
