I just moved on into the area. I am already not pleased with this school. I went to register my daughter, and the staff in front office were very rude and unwelcoming. I've never been treated so badly.

I feel that parents are no longer allowed to come in and help out {if you have a younger child who is not in school} with anything thing in the school. I would come and help as many days as I could last year with the school to include field trips and now I am told this year I am not allowed Just because I have a younger child not school age my non school age child was in the year book last year . He did not ruin the halls scream and yell. I am not allowed to be there for my child because they said that some parent had brought their child to the school and they slipped on a pencil and sued the school. My son who was in Mrs. McQuilkin's {thank goodness no longer there} class could not find his teacher and hit a poll and has a scar of his forehead for the rest of his life from this so does that mean I can sue the school for my son having a scar cause my son could not find his teacher. There are parents who cant be there to help in the school because they work I am a stay at home mom and want to help the school and teachers. I would be willing to sign a waiver to release me and my non school age child so we could help in the school.

My child has been here for three years. Child has excelled in all three grades. One could only hope that their child could attend a school of this caliber throughout their education. These is truly an excellent school which sets and maintains high standards. Even the cafeteria has a 100 health rating. Have seen a complainant about a particular teacher, who no longer teaches. My child had the same teacher and the teacher was outstanding. Cannot give enough kudos to an excellent staff.

This is the worst school ever! I had to pull my son in April. I can go on and on about this school! Please reconsider this school before moving to the area this school is zone for! I had over 45 problems and sent over 300 emails to this school. If I could rate this school a 0 star I would!

I gave it a one star rating because of the administration. The teachers we have had over the last 3 years have been wonderful, with the exception of one (Kindergarten). If my children did not have these amazing teachers this last school year, I would have pulled them from the school. The principal and assistant principal are cold and unfriendly. I hope one day they will be removed from the school setting as I believe they do not belong working with children. In addition, the lunch staff is awful. Other parents and I have witnessed the unacceptable behavior towards our children. It has even been confronted yet has not changed. Unfortunately my children have to go back this year, but it won't be for a full year. I will be watching all employees like a hawk this year! I cannot wait to be done with Liberty.

I am pleased how teachers are involved with students and when needed attention is given. My children have attended this school for two years and looking forward for my little one to attend soon.

My daughter is in Kindergarten this year and was enrolled in the Pre K program last year. We both couldn't be more pleased with the amount of time her teachers have put towards her advancement. She is extremely happy with the teachers she has had. Any time I have had a concern her teachers have got back to me very quickly. I have had nothing but wonderful experiences with all the staff there. I loved it when I attended the school and now my daughter loves it.

If I could give NO stars I would!!! My son attended this school in 2012 in Mrs. McQuilkins class. By January I had pulled him out of the school all together w/o warning! My son was bullied by McQuilkin, yelled at, hit and smacked, constantly targeted by her for one reason or another for this reason and that reason. Until I picked him up one day, after he escorted to my vehicle still sobbing, in front of the other 'riders' whom were pointing and laughing and making fun of him(calling him names like "what a big cry baby"). He was humiliated in front of his fellow students at the hands of the staff. Because of this school, Mrs. McQuilkin and the Liberty staff, my son has now been diagnosed with PTSD and age regression. He's 7 and and flinches whenever someone raises hands in the air too close to him. His love of learning has gone because of her! He has also regressed in some areas whereas he has frequents mannerisms and reactions of a 4 or 5 yr old now. Our family has payed dearly since homeschooling my son, but it's been worth every debt after the damage this school has done to my child!!!! Just listen, pay attention, and fight for your kids if somethings not right!!!!

My kids have attended Liberty for a total of almost 5 years. For the most part the school is lacking respect for other cultures and deversities. I can't help feel that when my son advances finally to middle school next year he may receive the respect he deserves. He has been bullied, and the prinicipal can care less. I continue to pray that my other child will have a better experience than her older brother. I even had a teacher write on my sons report card that it was basically an accident that he received all A's. I kept this and it has been my sons motivation ever since, guess what Liberty he continues to be on the A B honor roll.

My son has been there for 2 years now and he love it. The teachears he had so far had been great and dedicate to the students. The reading leves are amazing. And they focus and care for the students. But what the school neads are more parents to get involved. Teaches can not do our jobs as parents we need to support our kids.

My son is in 1st grade at Liberty and it is amazing how far he has come this year and how much he has learned. Being from Illinois, I was initially apprehensive as to what the quality of education would be in Tennessee, but after the strides my son has made both academically and behaviorally this year, I must admit I am nothing but impressed with the quality of education my son has received at Liberty this year.

My doughtor attended liberty for 2 years, and my son attended PK. All the teachers they had were so great. They both had lots of fun, and I loved the musinc performances. school building were clean, and most of the staff were understanding and helpful. However, the front office staffs are not friendry; rather, rude, nor are the most of transeportation staff. also, the lunch time seems to be too short, especially for younger grade students. note:There is a limit to how many PK student they can have.

I have had four children in Liberty Elementary and I currently have three. My oldest son has since progressed to middle school. My children love Liberty Elementary. They think it s one of the best places in the world. My children have experienced other schools; military, civilian, home school and private school. It is clear that they like this school and are doing well. They enjoy their teachers and their principals. I have had children in Liberty now for four years. I have sat in the classrooms with my sons and daughters and observed the interaction between them and their teachers. This is a Great School!

I have two children at Liberty Elem. and it has been a wonderful experience. My son is now going into the sixth grade and says he is going to miss Liberty so much. My daughter is so excited about going into third. The teachers are wonderful and the office staff is always ready to help with any questions. The principals and staff are always ready with a smile and encouraging word for all the students as they enter and exit the building. It was easy to communicate with the teachers and they really cared about my children's progress. I would recommend this school to anyone.

My son went to this school in K and part of 1st grade. I couldn't have asked for a better teacher in either grade. They acknowledged that my son was a little more advanced in certain subjects and didn't limit him but supported him and us as the parents greatly. We now live in Virginia (military) and wish the teachers here cared about the kids more than the children just being a number. I loved Liberty and so did my son. He can't wait to move back to clarksville and go back to liberty. Thank you very much for a great learning experience.

I believe that my son is being provided a truly average curriculum in this school. The school work he brings home is 95% ditto work, which requires exremely little teaching by the teacher. This may be just the teacher, but each teacher's curriculum is reviewed by higher authorities in the school. Also, the playground is a joke compared with any school from California. The children seldom get to have recess. It's not every day. I believe that this is a serious flaw in their instruction to my child. New facilities do not always equal quality education.
