My child has been attending Liberty Hill For a few months now. She absolutely hates it. The staff is the worst. The day I met the counselor, she was very rude and seemed like she hated her job. I was supposed to meet with a teacher one day and she wasn't even there, she dint call nor email me to tell me not to show up and waste my time. Many students attending have disciplinary problems which makes it hard for my student. There is lack of professionalism all throughout this school and something needs to be done.
My child is currently in his second year at Liberty Middle School as a 7th grader. In these two years my child has had many struggles to keep caught up with the work. I have spoken with the teachers in parent/teacher conferences multiple times to try and come up with a plan to help my child succeed and met with the Asst. Principle/Principle, however the same answer is always given. The common response from the teacher's and administration is that the child is responsible for doing what they are supposed to do. As a parent I totally agree, but am fed up with this attitude. The bottom line is that these kids are still just kids and still need strict adult supervision and guidance. I have met with some teacher's who look like they are on the brink of a break down. The teacher's have no control of their class rooms and choose to write the child up with disciplinary action to get rid of the child because it is easier rather than taking control of the situation and dealing with the student. We are parents who are very involved with our child's education and do everything possible to communicate with the school to fix whatever problems their may be with our child. However, when you have teacher's that are not up to the task of teaching, meaning they take their students attitude personally and respond to their students with sarcasm and demeaning communication or the principals assume that you are just uneducated parent's, that when you go to them with problems and ask for a solution they just beat around the bush and giving you the run around in the hopes that you will eventually give up and just go away. Fair warning to future parents and students of Liberty Hill Middle School, if you have the option of going to another school please do!
If the teachers are sarcastic and do not treat their students with respect then the students will absolutely not develop respect except for what is shown at home, however when your child is in school from 8 to 4 which is most of the day then there is where most of it must be practiced
I have had several children go through LHMS and onto HS. We have had nothing but great experiences every time. The faculty, staff, and administration are all loving and caring people. They worked hard with my children to make sure we got the best academics possible along with all of the extra curricular activities that are offered. Fine arts and athletics excel along with dance teams and cheerleaders. These people don't just work from 7:30 - 4:00; they work long hours before and after school along with the weekends.
The teachers are dedicated professionals who are prepared every day to teach and tutor after school. Check out the schools state testing scores to verify what I am saying!
