My daughter was never challenged in both public and parochial schools. Often their solution was to ask her to either help correct papers, or even worse told to read a book during math class because she already knew the material. She was even asked to stop raising her hand to answer questions because they knew she knew the answers. It became so boring for her and I could see that her love of learning was dying and as a parent, that is very difficult to watch. Getting straight A's begins to mean nothing to the child. It's not enough. Liberty Harbor Academy brought that love for learning back! Extra curricular activities you can get anywhere, but it should never be your focus. This school has been a wonderful fit for my daughter! She will be a 3rd year student this year.

Finally a school where my son is challenged. He looks forward to attending classes. It's not only the book learning but also the classes on community learning and public speaking. It's a well rounded education.

I cannot say enough about Liberty Harbor Academy. I love it and my kids love it too. It is nothing like a traditional school. They are challenged and motivated. All I have to say is words do not do it justice. Just go visit the school. Dr. Cooper and the whole staff are awesome. It makes me want to go back to high school. Just go see it and be amazed!

Excellent teachers is what makes this school unique. I recommend that parents attend classes for a day or two to see for themselves the high quality education that is offered at Liberty Harbor Academy. I was engaged throughout my visit and appreciated the high level material and the pedagogy.

Our daughter is getting an outstanding education at Liberty Harbor Academy. This is LHA's first year open and couldn't be happier with the job they are doing and their educational philosophy. This will be a very successful school.

Community ratings and reviews do not represent the views of GreatSchools nor does GreatSchools check their accuracy or verify the reviewers' identities. Use your discretion when evaluating these reviews.

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
