First of all, the staff at Liberty are very unsatisfactory. Many of the students (Mostly girls) dress EXTREMELY inappropriately, and the dress code, from what I have seen, is rarely enforced. I ve seen students obviously using their cell phones, even some using them during class while their teacher is teaching a lesson, and while the teachers see this, they take no action against it. There is also a lot of inappropriate language happening in this school. Students curse, loudly, in the hallways, and yet administrators do nothing. There is a lot of bullying as well. My daughter comes home extremely upset, claiming that other kids make very rude comments and harass her. She says that they do it obviously, and it seems as if the teachers see, but nothing is done. From what I ve seen, students are very obnoxious, and administrators don t care. The school is not very clean, either. Don t even get me started on the cafeteria And the hallways are crowded, and I have noticed a few times, that they smell like smoke. I think I will find a private school for my 7th grade daughter, instead of attending 8th grade at Liberty next year.

My son (7th grade) is not challenged much in his classes, due to busy-work. The work they do can be somewhat objectionable, too. In history, the teaching tend to be bias and one-sided. In english, there is minimal challenge and loads of busy-work. Math varies from unit to unit, sometimes moving too quickly, making it hard to keep up, yet other times, extremely slow and too easy. Science is the only class where I feel like they move at an acceptable pace and learn age-level work. Teachers give away detentions (Lunch and after-school) very easily, and hold students after school easily. One time, my son had an appointment directly after school on a day the teachers made him stay after. When he told them that he has plans, they didn t believe him, and I had to drive up there and pick him up. Needless to say, we were late for the appointment, because the teachers have no respect for the students. I got no apology.

There are not enough good words to say about this school- it is top notch in the county. The administration is excellent, visible, and involved. The extracurricular activities are infinite. I am thoroughly impressed with everything about this school. Not to mention, the facility is beautiful and well maintained.

This school is excellent. There are tons of after school programs and the administration is always readily available and willing to help. The facility is beautiful, built in 2002. The students are well behaved and respectful. This school gets an A+.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Virginia used the Standards of Learning (SOL) tests to assess students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, writing in grades 5 and 8, and science in grades in 3, 5 and 8. The SOL tests are standards-based, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Virginia. The goal is for all students to pass the tests.
