Open Quote It's what you make of it. I graduated from there in 2003 and now I'm at MIT. I wouldn't say that Liberty necessarily encourage academic pursuit, but (at least when I was there), if you wanted to learn, the teachers are always helpful and encouraging. I know many kids from liberty that have accomplished a lot. huzzah. Close Quote

Open Quote People from the suburbs gasps when I tell them my kids go to PPS. Well my kids are getting a great education at Liberty Elementary and PPS. My husband is faculty at Carnegie Mellon University. Many of my kid’s friends from school, their parents are faculty either at Pitt or CMU. Lots of smart kids at PPS. 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.
