Open Quote I'm currently attending this school, the teachers are wonderful, however the environment is unwelcoming to non-traditional/non-religious students. I feel that I cannot be myself around others here. The curriculum is great but there is too much pressure to get good grades due to over-achievers and expectation. Close Quote

Open Quote I attended this school and now I'm having an excellent college experience at The Johns Hopkins University mainly due to the skills acquired at Liberty. This is a superb institution. 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.
