Liberty Middle School is a Great School. It definitely should NOT Rate a 5, it should be Rated Much Higher. I know from experience what a school rated 5 would be. All 3 of my children went to Liberty Middle School for about a month and everyday came home with good things to say about the teachers and there experience. My children all enjoyed there classes and were excited to learn while at Liberty Middle School. Before Liberty Middle School my children were at another school and it was Not good at all. We have since moved again and their new school stinks to put it nicely. The students at Liberty Middle School are very nice as well, my children all made friends while there and all My children keep asking to move back to Liberty, NY just to go back to Liberty Middle School. Thank You Liberty Middle School for your Wonderful, Friendly, Safe & Appreciated Learning Environment. ~ Jennifer C.

i had went to many schools throught out my high schools years. I recently graduated from there and from what i have to say, Liberty High School was the best i had ever went to. At first, before i moved from liberty, i hated it, wanted to leave so badly. honestly, i hated it cause other kids hated it, but when i attended other school, i missed liberty so much that i wanted to go back and i did. I left in the 10th grade and came back as a 12th grader. I am proud to say that i attended and graduated from Liberty High School. LHS, you rock!!!!!

Liberty Middle School in my opinon is the best school in new york. Not to exagerate! I 've been in liberty elementary school through liberty middle school till 6th grade then I had to move :(. There is so many programs to keep you/child to stay involved and love school. I was first chair in viola in orchestra and played on the stages of Carenegie Hall, as a privilage! It's amazing until I had to move to the city. I would do anything to continue going to attend that school and the liberty high school. Whoever attends this school is a very lucky person. This teaching is strict although I appreciated that. They teach you the right way with dicsipline included. With the top technology in the classrooms.

About the tests


Beginning in the 2012-2013 school year, the New York State Department of Instruction implemented new assessments designed to be aligned with the Common Core State Standards. The new standards for proficiency in these subjects are higher than in previous years and the percent of students earning a proficient score is expected to be lower as a result of this change. See this letter from New York's Commissioner of Education for more information on these changes.

In 2012-2013 New York used the New York State Assessments to test students in grades 3 through 8 in English language arts and math, and in grades 4 and 8 in Science. The tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of New York. The goal is for 90% of students to meet or exceed grade-level standards on the tests.
