My son has attended Liberty Christian School for the past three years. The Lower School was a very good experience for us. Once he moved to the Middle School, however, out entire experience soured. Some of the teachers are weak at best, and the principal backs his teachers to the end. Considerable favoritism is shown to the point of changing how tests will be graded, after the fact, to the favor of certain students. When I asked the principal to help with the issue, I was effectively told to mind my own business. If you can afford to buy the preferential treatment or have an athletically gifted child, you will probably love this school. The rest of us would rather take our students and money elsewhere. One last thing... beware of bait and switch with respect to course offerings. The website "needs to be updated" in their words.

In the last year and half, I have met around 16-18 students from Liberty in various places. The students ages were 8-18 years old. All I can is this....I would love when my boys grow up that they would have the same demeanor and presence about them as the students I ve met. In short, the kids I met were just great kids. Liberty s product speaks for themselves. Recently, I have enrolled my boys into Liberty and they are extremely organized and the teachers are incredibly insightful. After a month or so, I can completely tell how much better they have improved not only academically but by becoming more caring and nurturing of their brother. Best of all, we can have conversations of God and they learning fundamental values that hopeful carry them throughout their lives. Yes, private school is expensive and we as a family will be doing some serious sacrificing to make it work and not be as comfortable. However, when both of us as parents work a lot of hours and don t really have ideal family as back up. We really need the extra support and encouragement that Liberty seems to offer.

I was kind of blown away and bewildered by the negative reviews. This is our 7th year at Liberty each child has excelled academically and socially at this school. Out of the 14 different Liberty teachers my children have had, I have only had that happen once. It was my issue with the teacher not my child's. And even then the communication and interaction was there. I am not blind to think that every student and/or their parents who attends Liberty has an active relationship with God. But maybe instead of judging the behavior and attitude of others, we should work to lead by example. My children make me and my husband better Christians because of what they get from this school. Ultimately it is your decision on if your child should attend this school, but I have to wonder what the negative comments really stem from? Liberty has one of the highest re-enrollement % out there, and Ranked #1 of Texas's Private Schools last year. Values, spirituality, study habits, ect.. should all start at home Liberty Christian's job is to enforce and grow it.

I write a review for Liberty Christian(LCS) from an inside/factual perspective. A teacher and member of committees, my experience has given me much appreciation for the efforts and success of the school. My child attends LCS, where I would want no where else. Spiritually, every effort is given to preach the Word. However, we are not a church, we are a supplement, we are not and should not be the main spiritual source. Academically, our students score above average on benchmark and AP exams, reported by college board, not the school, so no manipulation. In regards to short failings, every effort internally is made to make a change. No one can change this overnight. Christians are often mistaken as being perfect. We are human, born in sin and need God's grace just like everyone else. LCS is big enough to offer whatever your child desires. But, small enough to give your child the opportunity to not be another face in the crowd. All social and/or favoritism accusation is not on LCS. Kids are kids no matter where you attend, getting plugged-in, is part of your child's responsibility. Our goal is to prepare the child for the path, not the path for the child. - Faithful teacher.

I was a student at Liberty Christian for 4 years and it was a good environment. They have improved over the years and my only complaint is there is a little favoritism. Other than that the school is great takes care to make sure that students learn at a steady pace and that the school is BULLY FREE. Liberty Christian overall is amazing.

Hate to poo poo the school BUT....I wish we had known the truth about Liberty. If you are looking for great academics or a real Christian environment, like we were, this probably isn't what you want. If you simply want to avoid public schools, it will work for you. Little to no teacher/parent interaction. Faculty/Administration consistently refuse to correct the multitude of internal problems. It's a safe,expensive, but safe mediocre school.

Our girls have really thrived academically and spiritually at Liberty. We are on our fourth year and both of our daughters have risen to the challenge of a rigorous curriculum. Liberty integrated 4MAT teaching a few years back, which educates the students according to various learning styles - it has been a hit with both kids and parents.The atmosphere at Liberty is joyful - they focus on preparing them academically for college, but even more importantly, they develop them into articulate leaders who are able to succeed in whichever field God leads them.

"i am just graduating form Liberty in may. and I for one can not believe what some of these parents and students have said. I would know better than ANYONE else on this site what Liberty is. first off, Liberty is like a second home to me" What an immature mindset to think that someone has had a different experience different than yours. Many families who began in Denton(including ours) and our finally saying "enough is enough". We are so relieved to be in a place where 4th graders are not texting boys, Christian mothers are covering their cleavages and talking about topics such as purity and modesty!

I am a sophomore at liberty, and it really is a great school. Everybody treats everybody with respect, the teachers are great for the most part, and I can leave my backpack out in the hallway without anything being taken. My only complaint is that they hand out too much homework, and I cannot do anything outside of school on weekdays. Bible, English, and science are the two classes where I actually do work in class, because I just take notes and quizzes in all my other classes.

Our family loves this school. We have been a Liberty family for six years now. The staff is wonderful and the environment is inclusive and Christ centered. The only negative I see is the stringent teaching methods. Children all learn differently and there is no teaching outside the box at Liberty. You either make the grades or not...no extra credit offered either. I would love to see development of different teaching methods instilled in the staff to assist all students and their respective natural methods of learning. Of course in saying that tuition would naturally go up. There are always pros and cons in every school but the pros definitely outweigh the cons at Liberty.

I have been a parent at Liberty Christian for 5 years now. Our experience with LIberty has been incredible. I can only speak to the ECE and lower school, but the teachers are nurturing, loving and focused on the best education for our kids. I believe there will be issues in any school you attend, but this school focuses on raising kids that are prepared spiritually and academically to face the world's challenges when they graduate. If every graduate of Liberty leaves and goes on to college prepared to live their lives to glorify God, then Liberty has done its job. I have had some issues at LIberty but always find the teachers and administration open for suggestions and eager to help. I consider liberty an extended part of our family and love it here. I would recommend it to anyone seeking a Christian Education for their children.

My oldest started at 3 &will be in 5th grade next year.She consistently ranks in the top 95% nationally and is already enjoying academic recognition from Duke UniversityTIP and has placed in an academic comp. Every teacher she's had has loved both Jesus and my girl.She knows who she is in Christ and avoids the small clique who gossip. One incident this yr when a not-so-nice staff kid passed out party invitations to some of the girls, right in front of the uninvited girls(against the rules). She was empowered to never do that. Some favoritism with staff kids in yr.book,but they corrected this year and every child was included. LCS is not a denomination, and hasNEVER claimed to be accepting of anything other than Jesus as Lord and Savior with Salvation being found in none other.While I believe LCS has not wavered in its mission to instill Kingdom principles in its students,I've met more moms who would rather talk about their square footage than what God is doing in their lives. Modesty discussions have come up in carpool based on the clothing of moms that would cause an adolescent boy to look twice. But God's truth is being shared and He is still in the heart-changing business!

My child started Liberty "Christian" as a 3 yr old and finally by the 4th grade we couldn't take it any more. The stats are twisted around to show the school as a favorite. ie. "Our school ranks the highest in the state". The kids are manipulated to get to the parents. ie. If your parents do/give this, you'll get wear jeans, etc. When we were told we didn't support the school because we didn't contribute $$$$$ above and beyond the 11K tuition was the last straw. There is alot of favoritism and cliques. Anything but Christian in my book. We left in the 5th grade for to a better school and my straight A student was behind in two subjects. There are tons of better schools in the area for the money. Don't be drawn in by "keeping up with the Joneses".

The staff and faculty ONLY like and favor students who fit into their "box". Unless you are an evangelical christian, OR if you have a child who is a GREAT athlete...DO NOT send your child to this school! Honestly, our treatment has been pathetic, and we are not even easily offended. This is exactly what is wrong with this country and human beings, as a whole!

My children attended Liberty for four years (middle and high school years). It took a few years to uncover the truth which is - the quality of the classes varies greatly depending on the teachers. Favoritism is alive and active in the classrooms and on the sports fields - the only ones who would claim it is not are those receiving the favoritism. Our choice to trust our children with the leadership at this school is the single biggest parenting mistake we have made (so far).

This is our child's 2nd year here at Liberty. (middle school) Liberty has been fantastic - with a positive, supportive, nurturing atmosphere. It is true that athletics are an intergral part of Liberty. At the MS level, it is obvious that all children are included if they want - which is a wonderful experience for them. As full time working parents that do not live near Liberty, the drive for us is difficult . We do not get to volunteer at the school due to our schedules and therefore do not know the other parents very well. Even so,we will happily and enthusiastically continue to send our child to Liberty and we feel very blessed to have found it !!

My son attended Liberty for 4 years and it was not worth the money. The teachers, while kind, are not as competent as our local suburb public schools. The school is in constant fund raising mode and athletics is clearly the primary focus. I would simply go somewhere else if you are going to spend $$$ on private education.

There are some great teachers and caring staff here and some wonderful students. Unfortunately there is a bad problem here with cliques and nothing is done to stop it. There was much more unity and acceptance of others in public school. This is something that needs to be addressed by the staff. It is hurting many of the students who deserve to have a good school experience.

I am going to be a Senior at Liberty next school year. I came in 6th grade, and I thank God he brought me hear. Is liberty hard? Yes. Do students look up to athletes? Yes. Do some kids have a hard time at first fitting in? Yes. But the most important question is "Is liberty a school that Glorifies the Lord, and promotes Christ above all else?" Yes. Its easy for those (FEW) who didn't enjoy their Liberty experience to bash the school, saying that "my kid had no friends," "teacher's were too hard on my kid," and "my kid wasn't treated fairly" but in reality, Liberty is not to blame for that. If your child didn't have many friends, its was not Liberty's fault. No high school is perfect. Liberty is one who strives to please the Lord above all else, and I count it as a second home.

i am just graduating form Liberty in may. and I for one can not believe what some of these parents and students have said. I would know better than ANYONE else on this site what Liberty is. first off, Liberty is like a second home to me. everyone there is so welcoming and I know for a fact that if you try to fit it, you will. I see it everyday where a kid gets brought into a group and meets new people. the ones who dont like it here are the ones who dont try to make friends. And another thing that really makes me upset is the statement that there is favoritism for faculty kids and athletes. Im related to the principle in fact along with a few teachers and a coach. Trust me, there is no favoritism here. Plus, almost every student graduates and goes to college.

I read through all of the reviews and am shocked at some of the comments. I should start by saying we are not related to anyone that works there. We've not noticed a bias towards anyone of any faith. Both parents work...we are not wealthy...we work to send our kids to Liberty. One child transfered in during the middle of her freshman year - a second during 6th grade when we moved to Texas - 2 years later - both are thriving. Liberty promotes leadership development and challenges students to excel in the classroom - all in a Christ -based environment. Do our kids have to work hard..yes. Do they have to follow the rules...yes. That's not a bad thing. Ref ALL after school activities - it is the participation/effort that is rewarded. If your students are willing to work hard and engage - Liberty is a great place to be.

It's true. Liberty is a great school if your parent or aunt or uncle or some sort of family relation works there. Exceptional athletes are also welcomed by students and teachers. Do not expect the staff or faculty to reach out for students needing help in fitting in....either you are 'Liberty Material' or you are not. And trust me - if your child is not, it's no fun. Expect rules and no grace - judgement and no mercy - if you do not fit their bill.

Liberty is a good school. The biblical influence is present and the teaching staff, especially for lower school, is wonderful. But, unfortunately I have to agree with the families below that shared their experiences about nepotism, new family labeling and the cliques. To a degree, this is present in all schools but for what Liberty strives to be this does standout if you watch and listen. But if it doesn't bother you then you can see what the school is trying to do for the students and families. It all depends on what you are looking for. Expect tuition to rise each year even in this economy where many families have received cutbacks. Sadly, Liberty has lost alot of families this coming school year.

Our children attended Liberty for 3 years. Each childs experiences and grade level varied tremendously. The staff favor old friends or those that are the big givers. The parents are very snobby (especially the ones that have known each other for a long time). The kids were not 'christ like'. When we were new, there was no 'buddy' family given to us. We are a 2 parent working family, which did not fit in with the Moms and Dads that could work in their schedule to be at school during work hours. The academics are very old schooled with sit at your desk type activities. Not very much hands on activities or inquiry based teaching. Public school is so much better. My children are treated equally (they werent at Liberty). Their friends and teachers exhibit more of a christian like character than those at Liberty!

Our children have been at Liberty Christian School for nine years. One graduated last year and the others started in kindergarten and are still there. We feel like our entire family has been blessed by our experiences at Liberty and are greatfull that our kids have spent most of their school years in an environment that fosters each child's worth in God's eyes. We believe they have recieved an exemplery education and most important, have been given a world view from a Christian standpoint. We have found the teachers, for the most part, strive to give our kids the tools they need to succeed. It is still our kid's responsibility to determine what they do with those tools. Liberty Christian's staff has always been very responsive when we have approached them with our challenges. Our kids are constantly reminded of their value and responsibilities in God's eyes. We feel very blessed.

Im a senior at this school, I came in my freshmen year. I have suffered through out highschool... I cannot wait to get out and I hate this school. All they care about is athletics. I was on the soccer team all but my senior year and I got a soccer scholarship but I was not allowed to have an assembly to sing with the college like everyone else gets simply because im not in athletics. The upper school staff lies and deceives and could care less about the students. The students are mean and cliqueish and are extremely vain.... Please take what im saying into consideration and rethink sending your children here. I am very active, it's not like I haven't tried, I've played soccer, been in theatre, and been in choir, but this school is hopeless.

My child attended Liberty for 4 years in the upper school. Sports is a major focus. There is a very high turnover rate of faculty. Academically, it is of average caliber and limited in curriculum and not progressive academically. There are some very good instructors, but most are average. Most faculty are there until they get picked up by a public school district. The environment, while positive, is very cliquish and it doesn't take long to see that nepotism is alive and well there. It is very conservative religiously speaking. Although they maintain that they are open in accepting students of all faiths, it is obvious that there is a definite bias towards those who are Baptist. It seemed to me that the majority of students that attended were seldom there for all four years of high school. Most were there if the public schools did not work out for them.

It is very evident that this school focuses on athletics more than anything else. In fact, both principals were at one point coaches for the school. Due to the overall arrogance of the school and some of its students, new children may have trouble fitting in and being accepted. Unequal punishments for upper school students and like other reviewers said before me, obvious favoritism is also shown. Although the facility is fantastic, it is also one of the biggest reasons why the tuition has been rapidly increasing. On a brighter side, though, this school's education is top-notch.

We have been at Liberty for two years and our son is finishing first grade. We have had nothing but wonderful experiences here. The teachers have been just what our son has needed each year. His skills and knowledge are above his peers at public schools. But what is even more important for the long term is that his teachers inspire him to make wise choices and have good character. I ve felt the environment is more like a family working with us as parents to help mold and guide our child s behavior, skills and values. Our choice was to investment the best we could for him now in his developing years instead of saving just for college. Submitted by Janice Downey, a parent.

My child is entering second grade and has been a student at Liberty since she started pre-school at 3. Early childhood education, including kindergarten, is exemplary. My daughter's reading, writing and math skills are far superior to those of her public school counterparts. But the true value of LCS is its ability to teach our children biblical values, discipline and pride of country. The students at every age and economic level exhibit maturity and class beyond their years. Worth every penny that I have to stretch to continue sending my child here.

Teacher competence varies greatly. Out of three high school English teachers, only one commented on writing assignments to help the students improve writing skills.

I have a child in preschool and pre K at Liberty. Am very pleased with the strong reading and writing skills that my children are loving and learning. Wonderful Christ-centered atmosphere, biblical truths and character are seen at this school. Weak in creative art and music - most artwork is teacher directed and no room for creativity. I feel they completely drop the ball in the early childhood music in the preschool. My child's preschool teacher is certified in early childhood, my child's pre k teacher is not.
