I have two children at Liberty Elementary (3rd grade and kindergarten) and so I am very happy with Liberty. One exception is the teacher my son had for 2nd grade as she wasn't as strong of a teacher as I would have liked. After voicing my concerns with the principal my issues were addressed and my son still did well overall. My son also has some learning disabilities and this school has accommodated him well.

Liberty has a great PTO and very involved parents. The teachers have been great to my children. We are sad to see Principal Burger leave but wish him luck in his new role!
I feel the quality of education my children received at Liberty Elementary school was VERY poor. I also do not support Multiage (split) classrooms for young children. My child was placed in a Multiage classroom in 1st grade (half first grader and half second graders). The pace of the class was much quicker than the straight first grade class and the work was the same my son did in second grade..............my child greatly struggled in that class
Not happy with the education my children received while at Liberty. Since my son has left he's been thriving in his new school and has made the high honor roll each quarter.......NOT the case at all at Liberty.....Glad my children are no longer there
Sometimes people get up on the wrong side of the bed (as they say) and sometimes they're just having a bad day but I think hospitality training might be in order for some of the office staff at Liberty school. One staff person in particular made me feel so unwelcome as a prospective parent that I was immediately persuaded to look elsewhere. This person's attitude made my decision very easy - thanks.
Liberty is a decent school. It does seem to have a pretty big bullying problem in some of the grades. Basically repeated bullying of students seldom results in much more than a slap on the wrist for the offender. Punishment is applied very liberally--in other words seldom. The current principal Mr Burger is a nice guy but a bit over his head. Most of the teachers have been excellent. With the few typical exceptions. It suffers a bit from the usual liberalism which restricts childrens decision making and attempts to force a liberal view on the students instead of staying neutral.
Top notch Staff Leader and supporting staff members teaching kids thru class or grade overlap concepts.
Dont like the idea of looping wished I got to know the other teachers before I leave to go to middle school. I hope there will be more activities going on next year.
