Open Quote I was excited to have my child attend Liberty. Under Dr. Davis' guidance, Liberty was an exceptional school. Somehow, that all fell apart once he left. High turnover rate, numerous teachers being hired with little/no experience, plummeting test scores, minimal discipline, ancient electronics that can't be repaired, but also won't be replaced because there is no money to do so...you get the picture. Very little money to work with when you are not a Title I school, but you also have parents that don't want to make the effort to get involved. The few who do get involved end up burnt out. Really sad to see such a decline in only 4 years. Hopefully the new principal that came on board this year will be able to put the pieces back together. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
