Amazing school filled with dedicated teachers. The kids are taught not only content but responsibility as well.

Excellent school. Wonderful, caring teachers and staff with tons of opportunities available. When you walk into this building, you know you are in an inspiring place of learning. My children couldn't have gotten a better education anywhere.

I used to like this school when mrs.Oberst was still there. But now since that mrs.Hutcherson came along my child has been falling behind in his education. And she does nothing about it. She just talks to them. This older boy was hurting my child and all she did was talk to him. Talk talk and talk. I hope soon there will be a better principle because if that does not happen my son is not going to be there any longer. I like the teachers: mr.Medeiros, miss merrill, mrs.Farrell, mrs holubek, mrs.Chamber, mrs.Maguire, ms.Evans, ms.Matson, mrs.Puhado, and i love all of the special teachers especially mr.Rotherham aka mr.Clean. I hate the green book theme. They make my child work as an employee and my son is only in 3rd grade! he hates it to. I use to like the greenparties butnow there boring.

My nephews go here and LOVE IT - they also tested ahead of their respective grades but are always challenged.

We had a very bad experience in this school. My son struggled and I feel like he learned very little. He was always in trouble and I felt like they labled him the 'bad kid.' In the school we went to these issues did not exist. I wish I never placed him in Liberty his kindergarten year, he would be even further along. I wouldn't send a kid there if this was the last school on earth.

Our son attends liberty and we have found it to be a fantastic school. The principal runs a great school and the faculty and staff are so dedicated. The speech and resource teachers available are excellent. There is band available to older grades, as well as some sports.
