We moved here a year ago and everything about Liberty is wonderful! The teachers and guidance are great, they work hard and give these children more attention than I have ever seen up North. All of the people, the principal and all staff are pleasant to talk to and deal with. I look forward to both of my kids graduating from Liberty High, it certainly is a school to be proud of!
