In today's age of school choice, the best choice for high schools in Peoria is clearly Liberty High School. From the strong academic programs to the phenomenal sports programs, this school has it all. Since coming to Liberty a few years ago, the principal has turned this school's programs into the best in the state. They have hired excellent teachers that push the students to high achievement with great tutoring programs available. Also, the clubs and extracurricular opportunities for students are excellent. They have also hired great coaches that have really pushed their athletic programs up to a high level. This year alone, all but three sports made the playoffs and three teams played for the state championship. This is a great school!

Liberty High School is an outstanding high school. The principal and entire administration are supportive of all the students and are very accessible to parents. The teachers go above and beyond their daily hours to assure that students are successful in challenging classes. It is obvious that the teachers feel supported by the principal as the campus has a tremendous culture, evidenced by incredible staff enthusiasm, high standards and a low teacher turnover rate. The athletic programs are top notch and are tops in the state. The coaches are high quality and work to develop athletes throughout their entire high school career. This is clearly one of the top high schools in the state and definitely the best high school in the Northwest valley.

My child wanted to go into education field for a career. She now wants nothing to do with education. She sees great teachers abused and treated rudely by the principle. This is sad, because she really enjoys some of her classes. A new teacher/coach this year used their power over my my child to show whom is in charge, she dismisses & taunts my daughter numerous times, when I asked the VP/AD to check; he responded with, "Everything looks fair to me." I then questions, "You know who my child is?" He responded, "No." My child is on Honor Roll, a great kid. However this year she genuinely hasn't wanted to go to school and has become depressed. Beaware of the administration at this school, they treat the kids with intimidation and power. The PUSD response, "They are new to their job." Something needs to change. Kids only get once for their high school years.

My daughter didnt get any help from teachers for math, she attended multiple tutoring sessions and still could not grasp the curiculum. She also ran into many problems with the administration and guidance councelors when trying to figure out schedules, credits etc.

I have had three children attend this school. My oldest daughter started the first year the school opened. We have had nothing but positive experiences through all our years of experience at Liberty. The staff and teachers are excellent and very nice. My girls have always been able to get extra help with subjects when needed. They love this school! My older two daughters have gone back to visit teachers and other staff because they enjoyed their experiences at Liberty so much. Liberty is a top school in my opinion!

Kudos to the new principal at Liberty! I have seen many positive changes overnight, such as mailings home, a school facebook page and the amazing Excelling A celebration that included the entire student body. WOW!

Horrible experience at this school. My special-needs son spent almost two years here. Some of the teachers are very helpful, caring and supportive; others are not at all. Principal is not genuine, towing the district line instead of being there for the kids, especially special-needs students. DO NOT SEND YOUR SPECIAL NEEDS STUDENTS TO THIS SCHOOL! IEP staff are NOT well-versed in IDEA law and will take advantage if you don't know what to ask for. If you want your kid to grow up fast by exposing them to excessive inappropriate behaviors within the student body, this is the school to bring them to. My son came home after the first week and said, "There are SO MANY bisexual and lesbian girls at this school." SERIOUSLY?!! Yes. How would a 14-year-old know this? Because it's tolerated. Students making out in hallways is not uncommon, and the majority of the staff do nothing. However, any other incident, (even a minor one) will be noticed and sent to the principal.

We researched high schools in the west valley for two years before our son went into high school and continue to keep tabs on the different schools in the west valley. The result of hours and hours of research is that Liberty is the top high school in the west valley. They probably have set new state records for achieving the most awards and accomplishments (academic and athletic) in the shortest time ever. I'm an AZ native and have never heard of a school accomplishing the things that Liberty has accomplished in such a short time. You'll notice that just about all of the negative reviews on this site are about kids who struggle to keep up. Our son was easily a straight A, honors student in the Dysart School District, but had a rude awakening when he started at Liberty. He has still been able to maintain that honors status, but it has required 10 times more effort than he ever had to put out before. If your child is not willing (or able) to put out that level of effort, Liberty High School is probably not for you. If you want the best of the best of academics and athletics, you will get that at Liberty.

I can't wait until my child graduates from this school. She has had to retake math class in 9th and 10thgrade even after going to tutoring. She just didn't get somethings and when she would ask for help the teacher would tell her to pay attention, which would frustrate her because she was but she still didn't understand. In fact I had contacted one of her math teachers and when i asked him his class average, oh my god he started screaming at me telling me it was none of my business and I told him it is my business because my child is in your class and given the fact that on the weekly reports he use to have the class everage which was a D at that time and I noticed he quit putting the class average on his reports that's why i had asked. I will deal with him through the district after she graduates.

The teachers are not open to tutoring, the football program gets all the attention, students grades are not equal with regards for qualifying for after school events. A student can play football with a D, but for a student to be in drama they must have a 3.0

Overall, I am very pleased with the high school. The AIM program offers enriching and challenging courses. My son's college counselor has been so helpful, kind, and strategically minded about pursuing scholarships and acceptance into colleges. Our son is happy and motivated. Far more than he ever was at his previous private school.

Uneven staff - most are very good. Great athletic program. Limited academic offerings, because it is a new school still ramping up. Disciplinary actions are arbitrary, unpredictable and often contradict district policy. Little proactive carreer counselling for Juniors.

As a new school opens or for anything that first opens up, there will be pro's and con's. As for my experience with this new school,I feel there is good staff(willing to help), and the principle has control and I feel that is important with this new era of kids. The sports programs for the first year has been very impressive and I can't wait for next year.I feel any new student thinking of going to a 5a or to another close by school to re-think and make sure they are making the right choose for them.This school will make a Name for its self in coming years.

We have been extremely pleased with the first year at Liberty. Our son has become very active in sports and has a lot of good things to say about the teachers and staff. I have felt very involved since before the school opened. It is a terrific school and I have nothing but praise.

Good principal, good staff; teachers and office workers always willing to help.Need to offer more choices in foreign language. Not everyone wants to learn Spanish. French should be offered, I think they finally are offering German. As we like to travel to Europe this is important for us. No desire to slum it up at Rocky Point and if I had my way phone directories wouldn't give the option of choose #1 for English..Ridiculous!
