I have attended Liberty Common Charter School for five years. I have very much enjoyed the experience and have grown as a person not only educationally but also in character. The school's motto is "Common virtue, common knowledge, common sense." They teach kids virtues by targeting seven "capstones", namely: prudence, temperance, justice, fortitude, gratitude, patriotism, and wisdom. Liberty Common teaches its students with the most qualified teachers for the job. It is for this reason that they do not require teachers to have a teacher's license. I think this is an excellent idea because it makes teachers prove their competence in real ways rather than with arbitrary bureaucratic licenses. Liberty is a school that devotes itself to the betterment of their students and is anxious to aid parents with the task of teaching their children. Liberty can be strict but they also sponsor fun activities for students to enjoy and plan. Liberty Common is an excellent school in every way.

As a student at Liberty Common Charter School, I enjoy learning from the teachers the most. The teachers care greatly about the of the student body and do their best to not completely overwhelm us, but they do push us to do our very best. If a student, such as myself, my friends, or any of my colleagues need help understanding a concept or topic, the teachers are always ready to help. The administration allows many of our athletics to be funded, and also allow us to have our own extracurricular activities. There are very few things that I would change at my school. The first thing that comes to mind is expand our music academics. We have a concert band, choir, string orchestra, and a jazz band. We do not however have an auditorium. I would like Liberty to expand and have an auditorium so that we can have more space for the theater groups, as well as make a marching band. This is the main thing I would like to see change, or rather grow, at Liberty.
Overall this school is a great college prepatory school, but it has a couple of flaws. The teachers are great and the small class sizes allow the teachers to focus on the students and prepare them well in the subjects they teach. Our sports programs are small and limited but for the resources the school has the teams compete well. Our state record SAT is testament to the fact that we are prepared well for college and academically challenged to be our best. The actual building itself is relatively small but has most everything you would need for a high school of 500 students. The dress code can be annoying as it really isn't preparing you for college since most colleges have no dress code. The administration isn't the best either as it makes decisions from a biased and somewhat ignorant standpoint which isn't the best for the students. Besides its faults I would recommend Liberty for anyone because the education is unlike anywhere else in Colorado.
