Teacher effectiveness: Very ineffective

They need better teachers that are going to teach and not just let students run the classroom with fooling around

Amount of homework: Too much
October 13, 2015
To much because half those teachers don't even explain the work They just give work out before explaining it to the students , and students are always trying to copy my daughter

This is a great school, clean campus, good kids, great neighborhood. I love the sports and choir program. You will not regret sending your kid here.

In my (a student) serious, unprejudiced, fair review; I highly think that this school has staff with problems and issues beyond anyone's control. I've gone through many different schools and this school is by far one of the worst ones I've went to. The many unskilled, ignorant and aggressive teachers that always stay there and never seem to find another kind of job isn't the only problem here. The deans/security staff also have straight-up rude temper on top of being prejudice and selfish. Just recently Bill (that lovely Dean) slapped 2 days of lunch trash pickup for me simply just for riding my bike through the school's private "crowded" parking lot on my way to school ; and to make matters worse, Bill (the Dean) told me that if I continue to bike through the school parking lot (regardless of any excuse) I'll be suspended for 3 days and then he told me that the next time I ride through the parking lot I'll get expelled!!!! (really???? Talk about straight up bs) I've just about had it with Bill Richardson (the "dean") that I honestly think should find another job.

My son went to Liberty for 2 1/2 years and got into so much trouble there but never repremended for it. We found out he gambled, smoked and sold homework and when we talked to the Dean tort him know what was going on they just told our son not to do it anymore.. What a joke.. My son also broke a bus window and was caught smoking at the bus stop and the school didn't follow up with us to even let us know that he had these issues. We switched our son schools and he is doing fantastic not a lick of trouble. He did fantastic academicly so maybe that's why he got away with stuff.. Our daughter currently attends and I want to get her out if the district badly she was excused from a period that we picked her up in and the school didn't excuse her and treated her like a criminal, we are purchasing a house out if the district just to get my kids away from this school.. When they opened years ago my younger sister went there and they didn't care then if she was at school or how her academics were. I don't recommend this school at ALL.

My daughter just started 10th grade here. I couldn't be any happier. Great school. She was comfortable the first day.

My 3rd child through Liberty will be a 2011 graduate! Love the school academically..but it helps to know "who" the best teachers are..although they have many!! However..it does lack leadership, 3rd principal in 5 years - not good!! And it's ALL about the BOYS programs..girls are token only:(( This school is STRONG due to STRONG parental support and those teachers that work with them!! All 3 have had a good HS experience from 2004 - 2011!! Oh...and I've had the pleasure dealing with ONE very competent/knowledgable counselor - willing to go the extra mile (CD)!!!

This school has so many issues I do not know where to begin from the uninvolved Principal who my 2 daughters do not even know what she looks like, to the V.P. that protects teachers who outright have integrity issues. Teachers who do not care about our children, regardless if they are at a 3.5 or 2.5. Inconsistant teaching and no compassion, I could go on and on since having 2 daughters go to this school for their entire High School careers. Horilble school

This school is a good school, however, if your child has a medical problem the PE teachers don't seem to take them to seriously. YOU HAVE TO GO TO THE OFFICE and make a scene for anything to happen!!!

If your child has a 3.25 or better you can be assured that your child will probabbly be helped along the way but if they are stuggleing and may or may not get into a good college send them to Highland, East or North.

Cannot compare to other High Schools, but the quality of teaching seems to be low and the concern of the child's education has been ignored. Definetly needs more Teacher, Principal, and all other Staff envolvement with these kids. They seem to only be a number and not individuals.
