    We relocated from a large city to findlay and purposely purchased our home in the Liberty Benton school district because of school reviews and state testing scores.Given what we have gone thru with our kids I could care less about test scores and if I had it to do over i would go with a staff that has a heart for kids over testing scores and rankings. Unfrotuantely I was unable to visit the school before we moved otherwise I would have found a home in a different area.The school itself is run down.I have found the administration to be an utter joke. We have had multiple issues with bullying and I had to be the one to push the issue with the school to get it resolved.The classrooms are overcrowded and the school smells horrible. The lunch room is noisy and chaotic. The education leaves a lot to be desired and the teachers do not appear to have any order over the children when they are out and about in the halls. I hope this review will keep people from making the same mistake I did. Go to the school during the school year to check it out and see what it's like before you enroll your kids there. I didn't have that luxury and I won't make that mistake again.

    This school is absolutely fantastic! You will not find a principal at any other school that is so devoted to the students! Mr. Burkett goes out of his way to give all the children attention and many incentives to be good. He is very active in the daily happenings with the students. Also this school has a fantastic PTO. They do so much for this school and have many different ways in which parents can contribute to the school that the school pays for all student field trips so fees. They have a lunch balance program so you can see exactly how much money your child has in their account and what they ate. They have security cameras and have instilled many safety programs to ensure students are safe. They also have an instant alert system to inform parents about any delays cancellations early releases or other school emergencies.

    Our son got the best education we could have asked for. We are certainly glad we purposely moved into the district so that he could attend!

    We transfered our son to LB in January 05 after moving into the school district. I was very nervous about my son changing schools mid-semester. I wasnt sure how he would adjust to new kids teachers rules ect. From the moment that Mr Burkett took us around the school we felt better. My son says he likes all of his teachers but 2 in particular that stand out are Mrs. Elbin & Mrs Ebert. Its obvious that the staff at Liberty Benton care for the children. That is very refreshing in a society where some teachers dont care. The school calendar is an excellent way for parents to stay involved in the events at the school. I am very happy we made the decision to transfer him.

    This is our first year at this school. We came from a very large city to here and we love it. Her teacher is great but the office staff could stand to be a little more polite with us new parents who don't either know how things work or know how to get around the school itself.

    This school is very open to having parents come and help out... Though there are some teachers who do not want this.. very few.. Overall the staff is friendly and very intrested in helping my child with things.
