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)!!!

Great Academically, I'm so happy my kids went to Liberty.

Posted January 11, 2006

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

Liberty is a great school educational wise, but I don't feel like my children are safe there.

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.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
