Student at liberty and the school sucks administrator dont help.at all they only care about themselves . Worst school in Osceola county honestly .


Posted April 24, 2013

I went in to speak with the office staff about my daughter possibly starting school there. They were very rude, and I did not appreciate how they treated me. I have not gone near that school since that day.

As a student nearing graduation, I recommend Liberty High School because of the excellent teachers that will work one-on-one with any student willing to learn, an administration staff that respects the parents and students, and a principal who cares for the quality of the students' education. Many sports and organizations welcome students to broaden their experience with their school.

Liberty, like any community made up of 2400 distinct personalities, has issues that need to be confronted. As a teacher (at another school) and the parent of a recent graduate, I have found the teachers to be responsive and the lead guidance counselor to be more than helpful. These students are almost adults. They must be responsible for their own work and transcripts. Parents must also stay involved. Liberty staff and administrators offer many opportunities to meet with them if parents are willing to spend the time.

This school has a very bad administration very disorganized no one knows where to send you or transfer phone calls when you have problem.They never got my childs schedule right for the two years that she had been there never could get a hold of the guidance counslers no one ever returns phone calls and when you get fed up and go to the school to talk with some you either get sent to the wrong place or no one is available .They can't record you childs return of books or any other materials correctly they don't give the kids any proof that they turned their stuff in so you end up paying for their mistakes beware if you sen your children to Liberty it is very unorganized.

I just graduated from Liberty High School. This school is amazing, and has an excellent campus, staff and student body. I recommend this school.


Posted April 28, 2009

I just moved to Florida and I am very pleased with this school. The faculty is great and the young adults are too. The facility is clean and safe. My son has meet many new friends and I think this has been one of his best school experiences. There is no perfect school. All have a problem or two. My family is very satisfied.

Liberty High School is a great school. The teachers and administrative staff is extremely response. Every time there was an issue with my child it was addressed immediately. There are meetings to inform parents of major issues. If your child is the type that follows others, he/she will not be successful in any school they attend; however, if your child is a leader, he/she will excel at Liberty High School. I highly recommend this school.

this is really the best school i have ever gone to. i was really sad when i had to move away and change schools. this is the only scholl that i have been to that teachers and students work as a team and everyone acts like one big family. the pk class was so special to me. not one time has the ever been a problem with that class. yeah we have our problems with the test scores but you have to remember that most of the students came from a school that didnt care about the students and didnt care what they did. the old principal was great but the new one is good to. well i hope this helps all of you out.

While it is a very enthusiastic and high-powered faculty and staff that work at Liberty, a vast majority of the students are an exact opposite.

About the tests


Florida uses School Grades to measure the overall performance of a school each year on the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). Each school is assigned a letter grade (A-F) based on three criteria: the overall performance on the FCAT, the percentage of eligible students who took the test, and whether or not students made progress in reading and math. The School Grades are calculated by adding points earned from each of the performance criteria listed above.
