Liberty Elementary Named #1 Top Gold Ribbon Elementary School

Children at Risk recognized Liberty Elementary as the #1 Top Gold Ribbon Elementary School. Gold Ribbon Schools demonstrate high achievement despite a high population of economically disadvantaged students.

Children at Risk ranked 457 public schools (314 elementary) for performance on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness (STAAR) reading and math tests, academic growth, and college readiness.
 
"We don't view our kids as at-risk but as at-promise," said Principal Michael Dickinson. "Our staff strives to ensure that all of our kids learn through high levels of rigor and engagement, and we believe that family involvement is imperative to their success."

Principal Michael Dickinson is pictured with Robert Sanborn, president and CEO of the non-profit, advocacy organization dedicated to addressing the root causes of social problems impacting Texas children through research, education, advocacy and public policy.
