Posted September 4, 2005

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.
