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.
My child has been at Liberty for three years and has excelled in his growth and studies. All his teachers have been above par and dedicated and involved with us in all aspects.
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!!!!
This is my son first year is school and he hates it he does not want to go to school says the tracher Mrs. Mcquilkin is always yelling at them I helped with math class and 2 boys told me that same thing they don't like her and she yells at them my son is always clipping down he says he is board she repeats the mae thing over and over. I work with the PTO and am forced to sign my son out if I want to walk out of the school at the end of the day and have recieved a kletter that I sign him out too much but he stays in the classroom till school is out. ASo even if parents want to be involved with the school and helping out they get letters saying they are signing their child out too much so what is the point of being involved
I love how involved the teachers are with the students. my daughter has a learning disability and since moving here and going to this school she has made a major improvement
My children are happy at Liberty. the teachers care and the administration listens to concerns. We need more parents to be active in the PTO.
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 daughter has been there for three years now and I love the courtesy and the safety measures the school has in place. Teachers are prompt with repsonses to questions it is a wonderful school
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 love this school so does my daughter the teachers are amazing the classrooms are not to big so it gives time for the teacher to have time for each child and i love all the extras the school has the music program the recess and labs we are going to miss this school hope there is an awesome school like this in bragg.
My daughter is currently in Kindergarten at Liberty. She was in pre-k last year and they were wonderful. if you have young kids going to school there is no need to worry about Liberty they truly love the kids and take every step needed to protect them
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!
my daughter and son go to this school and they both love it, very good teachers and friendly environment
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.
