West Liberty Elementary School has a staff that takes each child's needs to heart. They are not only teachers to our students, but they are also friends. The school is supported by the community and the parents are always welcomed.

It has good teachers and since classes are small they can get more individualized instruction.

As 'Grandma', I am encouraged to particpate in my Grandson's life at school. I am always welcome, but I am no different from the entire community. Our school offers several 'community invited' programs & the entire community is normally there! My review is 'Raving'!
