I am a Student attending Liberty High and it is a wonderful school with amazing staff, but it is also where creativity goes to die...but isn't that all suburbs really?

As a memeber of the LHS staff, I am proud to say I am a Redhawk. Administration is amazing here and support us 100%. The students are the best and this will be our second year open, and I know we are going to accomplish great things!

Just by looking at the statement: : 'the best school I have went too' I have serious concerns about its quality of education at least in English grammar!

This is our son's 1st year at Liberty and we are very pleased with the staff and their program. The teachers are very attentive and the campus is absolutely gorgeous.

This is a great school that I have went to. Even though it has only been a school for one year it has great priorities in store for new students. Since it is new the students can make a club or suggest new classes that should be added. The new campus is very, very large that it is the largest campus in Frisco ISD to this day. There are about 700-800 kids attending now, but it is projected to be at more than 2200 students in 2010. Alot of the teachers are energetic and fun to be around. Also even if they are fun they are safe and strict when they need to get to the point. I am going to leave this school because of family issues, but I would love to stay another year or more.
