Open Quote The school has a systemic problem with both violence and drug use. Close Quote

Open Quote I agree that bulling is out of control at Liberty. The administration has little or no concern for students well being. Two of my children who have attended Liberty were constantly bullied and witnessed many other children being bullied on a daily basis. The counselors have been no help at all to them, shifting blame and causing them to feel even worse about the situations. They proposed solutions yet never followed through with them. Unless the bullying issues and procedures are addressed and a new system is implemented,I would not reccomend this school to anyone! 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.
