Liberty Elementary has a supportive and encouraging staff. Communication regarding academics, behavior, and parent involvement between school and home is clear, concise, positive, and professional. The teachers go above and beyond to know all students, support them, and meet their individual needs. Our son has had positive experiences socially, emotionally and academically, which exceeded our expectations.
My four children have attended Liberty and I've been disappointed in the way the teachers teach to the test. It seems that students who think out of the box are discouraged from doing so. Grading seems arbitrary - more about test taking skills, less about whether or not a child understands the concept being taught. Students who may have different learning styles are forced into performing to a specific type of learning that may not match their individuality. If a child learns differently, their grades suffer. On the plus side, parental involvement is amazing.
If you thought Liberty was a good school before, you will be amazed how positive it is with our new principal and assistant principal... There just seems to be such a confident attitude from the parents, to teachers to the kids in the halls. There is really a communication between the needs of the parents and teachers and leadership that are helping to facilitate what is best for our kids... a new page has turned for Liberty- - many feel that it is a VERY POSITIVE change. This is not just a "get the job done" group anymore, it's a "HOW CAN WE BE SUCCESSFUL and MAKE OUR KIDS FEEL GOOD AND SUCCESSFUL TOO " group... the halls are no longer cold!!! I finally feel like we are going to be heard and not told how it's done WOOHOO!!! GO LIBERTY!!!!!!
If you give this school a bad review, you will most likely NEVER find a school good enough for your children. Liberty is amazing. The PTA is out of this world. The principal gets the job done! Top notch education. We moved to this area for Liberty elementary.
Liberty Elementary is an amazing facility for education. The principal takes personal pride in developing one of the best schools within the LISD elementary school system. The teachers and staff are all top rated educators who deeply care about the future of our children. In my opinion, it is the best public elementary school.
