This school is absolutely horroable !!! My son went here for 3 years and turned from a happy child into a depressed child ! Now my daughter is here and I already seen big changes in her behavior and I will not look at this and say nothing this time > This week my daughter had to draw pictures of terrorist , war and murder !! Im asking everybody as a mother : what kind of school is this ????!!!! Not is it enough that they present war related pictures in their hallways , no ; children are getting sick in this school and are getting nightmares from doing their homework ! I will not let this happen any longer , I will bring this to the public and want that changes are happening there !
My son is just finishing up his first 9 weeks of 6th grade here and so far I'm pretty disappointed. He is special needs and we had so much support from KISD elementary schools I was looking forward to that at the middle school level but I'm not seeing it. He will be attending Saturday detention for having forgotten his badge once and having 3 tardies while trying to change classes and work his locker in the crowd. Dealing with aspergers/adhd has been such a struggle and I'm shocked that these minor infractions will land him in detention but we are going to be big about it and then celebrate the fact that we are awesome despite others failure to see that as soon as detention is over :) I'll reserve further judgement on this school because I'm always hopeful!
Liberty Hill Middle School is bad. My son has had problems with this school from the beginning. He was on the Honor Roll throughout elementary school but has struggled to pass many of the classes here. They only offer liberal arts elective classes. The choir class has a requirement to attend too many after hours concerts. The orientation was a joke because everything they tell you at it gets changed once school gets started. He got several MORs because the tardy bell was five minutes early. When I pointed out that it didn't even agree with all the other clocks in the room, the secretary said that they knew it was broken, but that it was our responsibility to know what time it was at. This would be ok, except it kept changing. Bullying is a big issue at this school. When I went in to talk to the asst principal about it, there was a stack of 20 or so complaints from that week alone, and it was only Tuesday. The teachers need to stand out in the hallways or something. My son has came home several times and told me that he was given less than 5 minutes to eat lunch. He has had 5 different lockers this year because he either couldn't open or couldn't lock them.
I love this school. Teachers and staff are very professional and friendly always looking to help the students excell in their education to include the extracurricular activities. The Spanish Department goes beyond expectations in assisting the students and providing experience to students around the world. Way to go Mrs. Alago. LHMS proves with high TAKS scores they sure make a difference in the district.
I love it at liberty hill. it's my 1st year here so it's kind of new. the teachers are helpful and really care. ive come sometimes telling my parents everything ive learned something i never could do in elementary school. this school also built my self confidence. i'm even more courageous than i was before. i love it here.
i am a student at this school and i love it!!!! the teachers make sure that you understand everything. mrs. harris help me alot she works at the math center and helps you, so does mrs. nunes. this school has been a pleasure i will never forget my time at this school.
I have been there for 10 years and I have had a wonderful time teaching and being a part of the lives of my students and their parents. It truly is my 'second home'.
I'm currently an 8th grade at LHMS, and I wouldn't transfer for the world. The teachers take their own time out to help students, The history teachers always have a review after school on a day before a test, and the students are all distinct and have their own personality. It's a fun school to be at and finding your classes is a breeze. Go LHMS!!! ~8th Grader-Chan
Love everything about this school with the exception of one thing. Involvement with the PTA. If we get one, yes I said ONE, parent who is not a member of the board to show up for a PTA meeting it is a banner night. While I of course realize that people have things going on in thier life, I find it hard to believe that not a single person from any family can find 1 hour to spare 1 or 2 days a month. My only real regret is having to send my kid to High School next year.
i see why they say liberty hill is the best school i nthe district. They get district in sports everyyear and get recognized in acadmics. The teachers do an excellent job. There is a non-tolerance for failing. The band is one of the best one day you should hear them. If your a parent i think you might consider to send your child to this school
The staff at the school continues to find new ways to baffle me with incompetence! I am convinced the administrations is aware of racial bullying problem but afraid to take action.
This school is absoluletly amazing. I enjoyed my three years there, and was very upset to leave. I feel this school has a made a great impression on me and I hope it will with all the other students as well. The band was outstanding with thanks to our band director Mr. Peterson, as well as theater arts, choir, athletics, lionettes, the cheer team, and acedemics. Teachers were very helpful and very nice. I almost made it out with straight A's which is not likely to come from me. It was probally the best three years of my life because people there just connect. I'm usually a little socially withdrawn but going there I made tons of new friends in only a few days. You are luck if your child attends this school. You should expect great things from them one day ~Formal Student Cassidy
liberty is a very great school and they really care about the kids nobody cannot beat the band, lionettes, sports,teachers,students nor the the best grades in town
The test scores and most of the teachers at Liberty Hill are amazing, but there are many discipline problems.
This school served it's purpose while were there. My son had a lot of friends, however I felt like the teachers had little control over the halls and classroom. Some of the children were loud and unruly and it seemed like consequences for misbehavior was a joke and fell on deaf ears. There was ample chance for tutoring which I loved. On a scale of 1-10, I would give this school a 7.
Hello everyone. I have had my two sons attend this school. This school is great, but it could be excellent only if we had more parents to attend the workshops that are provided threw the pta and join the pta ! Parent involvement this year has excelled along with the workshops offered. We are champions in everything we do !
This school has shown that parent involvement increase the productivity of the schools performance. Teachers and administrators deserve a pat on the back for excellence in teaching. Keep up the good work.
The staff at Liberty Hill are not at all concerned about the well being of our children. Staff should be on duty at the time they are assigned but they are not. When i go to the school i get little support from the staff and many times they've been extremely rude.
Our son has attended LHMS for all three of his middle school years and we love it. The demographics are culturally diverse enough that the kids don't gang up on eachother, the academics are excellent - the teachers truly care about the kids and their learning and well being, and the band and drama depts. are the best in the area - the band director is great with the kids and really teaches them a lot, and the Theatre Arts teacher loves the kids and gets them so involved in every aspect of the arts - she even takes them to a Broadway show in Austin every year! We will miss LHMS when our son graduates and moves on to high school. If you're considering where to live when you move to Killeen or buying a house here, check out the neighborhood of LHMS.
I think the new principal is to self absorbed and only care about being the best not the kids!
