The Liberty County schools are not okay. When I was enrolled into the schools the principals and staff were more worried about the kids getting Ipads than setting up cameras for the kids safety. When the school got remodeled in 2016 there were supposed to be cameras, better security, and better guards protecting students from possible inside and outside incidents. That never happened. The kids where supposed to be getting better school lunches and better teaching arrangements, but that happened either. The teachers in the schools were decent. Some knew how to teach and the kids loved them, but the others? The students had no idea how they even kept their job. When I was enrolled many of my classmates and also I had to teach ourselves the material because the teachers would rather focus on football games, other children, or even their own personal lives than teaching the students and bettering their education.

I have attended Liberty County Schools since elementary. I have had wonderful teachers who have cared for my well being and provided the best education possible. I have soaked up skills that I will forever use. What I like most about Liberty County is the opportunities to be involved and active within the schools and community. There are multiple activities every month that are fun and educational for students and parents to participate. Liberty County could improve on communication. The county does well when there are major announcements. For example, school being canceled due to weather, but when it comes to smaller activities like tennis or reading bowl, announcements are not that important to the county. I feel the county should have the same amount of coverage for all sports and activities to make sure that everyone feels noticed. Overall this is a great county to grow up in and I would recommend it to anyone!
We have tried to remain optimistic about the schools in liberty county, but after almost 4 years of our kids attending them- we give up. The schools are the main reason we are relocating. The class sizes this year for my kids are: 26 to 1 Teacher ratio, 21 to 1 Teacher ratio, and 30 to 1 Teacher ratio. The class sizes are way too big. There are some good teachers that really care, but when the odds are stacked against them. At one point my kids were struggling and falling behind, so I reached out to the school for tutor resources/ etc. They had absolutely no idea. I ended up calling the Board of Education looking for local resources for extra help, and I never even got a phone call back. This school district is not up to par, and is failing the kids.
