Liberty Corner Elementary School
Liberty Corners Elementary houses kindergarten through grade five. School officials describe Liberty Corners as follows: "A rigorous curriculum, substantiated by current educational research, encourages flexibility and diversification. Our educators understand, recognize and address the multiple intelligences, varying learning styles and differing developmental stages of the students.
"Our literature-based reading program is a balance of shared reading, guided reading and phonetic integration. Process writing is a strong component of our language arts program. Our math program is a high interest, hands-on, inquiry-directed approach developed by the University of Chicago that complements our district curriculum goals and objectives. All students are exposed to art, music, technology and physical education, and all staff members integrate the various curricular areas whenever possible.
"The community and parents are encouraged to participate whenever possible in the education of their children. The faculty and administration are committed to frequent and on-going communication with our families. Parents are often found working with individual children as well as small groups during writing workshops, reading workshops, math explorations and in a variety of thematic projects and other subject areas."
