Methow Valley School District Reviews

On average my experience with Liberty Bell Jr Sr High School was a good experience. I played a sport every season, so I would say that had a lot to do with my enjoyment and inspiration to actually get up every day to attend. The school is fairly small, so you get to know all of the students as a family after the first year or so. I was pretty quiet and just focused on my class work and that made my time easier. For some, I think they got too involved in the family drama/social scene and that made things hard to deal with for them. There are a few Great coaches that are super encouraging. Their Cross Country, Track, wrestling and Cross Country Ski teams are all very successful. All in all it was a great experience for me personally. I’d for sure recommend this school for anyone that is looking to do well academically and athletically.

Everything! They let bullies get away with everything but the kids that stand up for themselfs get into touble. Their spec ed is horrible, you have to fight for everything for your child. They won't learn about the child's disable, my son is going deaf and I had to fight just for a fm system and for him to get help in math. He is 5th grade and his math is at 3rd. I have had to sue the school three times just to get the help he needs. You can look them up.
There is a huge bullying problem in both schools in this district, especially the elementary school. The district does not follow State Laws regarding bullying or even their own procedures. They sweep the problem under the rug and pretend it's not there, I know this from personal experience and from speaking to at multiple parents and students who have had the same experience. The district favors prominent members of the community and their children as well as their star athletes. This district is also the only choice for our small community and ignored the protest of over 1/3 of the parents to become an International Baccalaureate school. There was a signed petition and objections voiced at the school board meetings, which they also brushed under the rug and continued with their course of action. Thsee are just 2 of the reasons that there is a large community of homeschoolers in this district, with over 60 students in a very small community.
