This review is for the PPCD program at Liberty Grove. I cannot say enough good things about this program. The teacher, Ms. Patsy, is nurturing and has a genuine concern for all of the children, as do the class aides and the school nurse. I really feel that we work together as a team to help my daughter achieve her best. They do well communicating important information to me about my daughter and her progress.

My daugter just started her third yr at Liberty Grove. Our experience with Liberty Grove has been very good. Quality of education is excellent.

I believe that a previous poster was mistaken about this school's PPCD program (preschool for children with disabilities). The head teacher's name is not Mrs. Gayken. In fact, the head teacher (Mrs. Lewis) and one of her aides in the PPCD program here have been at Liberty Grove since it opened in 2006. They have been very creative and professional in working with my son. Many thanks to them, as well as to the speech and occupational therapists. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Liberty Grove to other potential students and their families.

In my opinion the PPCD program is lacking. The senior teacher is Mrs. Gayken. In my opinion this teacher is lackadaisical about her teaching. More than once she explained to me this was not the job she wanted. (She is teaching Pre-K and wanted to teach young adult.) I pulled my child from the school.

Last year we had a terrific year. Mrs. Bergstrom was the best teacher. Cares about each kid. Also Mrs. Holt, and Mrs Pick were good. 4th Grade is good for the students here.
