Liberty School, developed by the NTC Foundation for needy and underserved students while introducing them to the arts, has taken off this year doubling its number of Liberty Station tenant teachers as its student population has mushroomed from 60 to 700.

“It’s not a school in itself,” said Kate Rubalcava, NTC Foundation director of programs and operations. “It was an education program developed in 2007 by the NTC Foundation with two major goals in mind: to give back to the community, and to reach children who were underserved, especially in the arts education area.”

Liberty School serves elementary students from three area schools — Dewey Elementary in Point Loma, Perkins Elementary in Barrio Logan and Washington Elementary in Little Italy.

Dewey Elementary Principal Tanya McMillin said Liberty School is providing essential supplementary education. 

“The opportunities for our students to shine in more than just academic areas is so apparent when you watch our students blossom,” McMillin said. “The students who may not be the best at reading and writing find their genius in other pathways and Liberty School allows them to do that.

“Attendance to school on Liberty School days is higher. Enthusiasm for school is higher. Our students seem more joyful,” McMillin said.

Third-grade Dewey Elementary student Keiana agreed. “I did not know how much of an artist I was until I stepped foot in Liberty School,” she said. “I also didn’t know how much art there was around me.”

Many Liberty School pupils are military dependents who struggle emotionally with mom or dad being deployed for long periods, creating single-parent households. Many are homeless and/or come from below-poverty income levels and struggle with constant transition and a lack of security.  

Rubalcava noted Dewey has a high military population, Perkins has a large number of homeless and English as a second language students and Washington Elementary typically has students with lower test scores and a higher level of financial need.

The NTC Foundation director said Liberty School sessions are typically four to six weeks with an hour to an hour and a half of class time. She noted Liberty's curriculum includes subjects like photography, animation, dance, theater arts, and writing.

“It’s an extension beyond what they are doing in the classroom,” Rubalcava said. “Our (Liberty Station) tenants work with their school teachers to put an arts format into what they don’t get in their curriculum in the classroom.”

On average, Rubalcava said students come to Liberty School to take a total of 16 individual classes in categories including dance, photography and media arts.

“It’s to enhance their education beyond what they’re currently doing in their classrooms,” she said. “It’s not meant to be just a field trip. Our tenants work directly with school teachers on their core standards to meet expectations for their grade levels.”

My Name is Monica Brown I would like to tell the world about a very special man, he is spell caster DR Oyinbo. I found out about DR Oyinbo through the testimonials of others that the Dr helped with on various issues. I had contacted DR Oyinbo for help in bringing back to me my girlfriend/lover, we had split over a terrible fight, I tried to reconcile but to no avail. The DR said this was a easy thing for him to do, he said he would cast a love spell on her and this would bring her back to me. I was a little disbelieving because I never heardof such a thing, but he told me to trust him, so i put faith in what he was telling me. Sure enough, 3 days after the love spell was cast, my girlfriend/lover called me and we are now back together, all because of DR Oyinbo. He also cured my hiv disease, this was done by drinking a liquid that he creates and provides for the disease. I strongly recommend that if you are having any relationship or sickness issues, contact DR Oyinbo, His email is [email protected] or Call/WhatsApp: 2348074066640

I will forever be indebted to the great Doctor Tebe for fixing my broken marriage after my husband left me for his mistress for 6 months. I never believed in spells until my friend introduced me to him. At first, I was skeptical about him because I heard a lots about false spell casters but I put my doubts behind me for i was desperate to get my husband back and I did according to what he instructed me to do. Now my husband is back just within 48 hours of contacting him. I'm living happily with my husband again after 6 months of divorce and I will not rest till he's known all over the world. He's also specialize in money spells, lottery spells, sickness spells E.T.C. Get connected with Doctor Tebe now, his email is [email protected] com or WhatsApp on 2348140544262

I wanted to share my experience as I think it would be a good one for anyone who is having troubles in their marriage/relationship.

myself and my husband were on a serious breakup, even before then we were always quarreling fighting and doing different ungodly act.. My husband packed his things out of the house and we had to live in different area, despite all this i was looking for a way to re_unite with my husband, not until i met dr unity the great spell caster who was able to bring my husband back home, and he assured me that my husband will come back to me within 11hours hours after he has finish the preparation of the love spell.I am very glade today to tell the world that dr unity is truly a man of his word because my husband came back to me and fell on his knees begging me to forgive him and accept him back….Today my family is back again and we are happy living fine and healthy, with dr unity all my dream came through in re_uniting my marriage, friends in case you need the help of dr unity kindly mail him on [email protected] or Call/Whats-app: 2348055361568 .

Its a miracle that I am alive today. I encounter HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS (HSV1/2) for good four (4) years, six (6) months and twelve (12) day with my calculations, before I meet the great Dr ojoka I am mira from Fresno California, united state of America and I was affected with herpes virus.Herpes is a viral infection cause by the Herpes simplex virus, marked by painful, watery blister in the skin or mucous membrane or on the genitals. This was what I suffered for good four years. I have visited CVS Pharmacy in Fresno for treatment but no improvement. I meet Dr ojoka online while I was searching for herpes cure I read a testimony about his work. I give a try that now becomes a testimony in my life. I contacted Dr ojoka Whats App  2348144172934 or email him [email protected] com
