Students Speak:


Recently, we took a moment to speak with our students about how they learn. Students explained a desire for more input in their education. They also told us that they all learn through different methods, and at different paces. Liberty High School Sophomore Luke Hunziker presented us with the essential question, “If we’re all so different, why should we all learn the same?” Take a moment to watch the full length video using the link below.
