Liberty is a fantastic school community. The front office is friendly, helpful and caring. Our students are always greeted with a smile and a hello by the support staff. The custodian even makes lunch clean up fun. Great teachers, strong instruction and love the writing program here. Sadly, we keep getting new principals. Wish they would stay longer

This is the best school that my children have gone to. The teachers are communicate well and are very friendly. My daughters love it there and are sad that they will be going back after winter break. Liberty will be very much missed by not only my daughter but, us as well. I hope the next school has teachers like Liberty.

My daughter had a great experience in the full time kindergarten program last year. Now that she is in first grade she has tested very high in the reading program they provide at the school called SFA. The children test and are placed with other children at their own reading level and as they grow and learn are moved up with others in the next level. She has really benefited from this program. She has gone in less than one year from not reading at all to reading at a second grade level. There is music class once a week and PE class once a week as well. There is a booster club separate from the districts PTA program. This way the money earned goes directly to the school itself not the district.

I had a great experience with Liberty Elementary School. My daughter was lucky enough to have gone there in Kindergarten and again in 2nd, 3rd and 4th grades. They have a Success for All reading program that is awesome. The teachers are very knowledgable and encouraging. Parent involvement at Liberty seems to be strong. I would definately recommend Liberty Elementary if you are new to the area. Staff is very helpful and friendly.

I have one child in 4th grade and one in 1st. This school is one of the most caring I have ever seen. The teachers and staff really care and there are alot of parent volunteers and activities for kids to be involved in.

My son was in Kindergarten last year here, and I loved his teacher. She was real nice, fair, caring, and thoughtful in other ways :)

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Washington used the Measurements of Student Progress (MSP) to test students in reading and math in grades 3 through 8, in writing in grades 4 and 7, and in science in grades 5 and 8. The MSP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Washington. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
