I had one child graduate from liberty this year and 2 more who have been there for 2 years. I can not say anything bad about any of the teaching staff. They all have been involved with the kids academic needs and have always reached out if needed. The Wrestling coaches are the best I have ever seen- they invest in each of the kids to inspire them to be their best every day, to work hard and to stay focused and that academics come first. They are a true example of what every child deserves and what every teacher should aspire to be. The only bad thing I have to say is god help you if you actually need the school counselor to help guide your child to prepare them for college- they could care less- and second the lady at the front desk is rude, hateful and has the nastiest attitude. She really should find another job- or should be held accountable for living and setting an example of the schools values.

Being a current student of this school I am thoroughly disappointed in the faculty and the fact that this school ranked 4 out of 10. They attempt to rule out bullying when some of the teachers have been known to encourage it and in fact bully students themselves, I've also been witness when students have been bullied by others and the teacher had just brushed it off. When trying to contact a supervisor/counselor, they have always take their sweet time before even calling you into an office to talk and have done nothing afterwords. My little sister was threatened by another student and told a faculty member in the front office and they have yet to talk to the boy who had threatened her, which was two months ago. The teachers are also lacking in the teaching department. Oddly enough, it's always the students fault as to why they are failing. After school tutorials never helped me for the past three years here and they actually don't teach during that time. They just do a few questions of the homework for you and send you on your way. I am also totally unprepared for college and what lies ahead of me after high school. I would not recommend this school to any of my friends and family

I have children who have gone through the LISD system. They were hardly ever pushed or encouraged by the teachers in this district. 2 cases in point: my youngest's teacher told me that my child was not reading at the level they should and I should spend the summer teaching this (I have FULL time job). I bought a reading program, and we worked over the summer. My oldest was having problems in Math; I asked for tutoring. I was told she didn't need tutoring as she was passing all of her state mandated tests; I hired a tutor over the summer for her. Middle school will worry you to death about whether your child has a belt, but no call if they are failing or not doing work. In high school very little/no labs for the Sciences. Extracurricular: Athletics, track, tennis, band; symph/marching, Art (no variety), Drama, cheer leading/flags (cost a fortune), welding tech (can get cert.), construction tech (can get cert.). Attitude of the whole town is the problem. They couldn't get a bond passed to expand the much needed Science dept. for high school. If you have the money to hire tutors, buy supplemental teaching materials, and time to teach (like I did), this is the school for you!

I graduated from this school and currently attend college. This school doesn't do enough to prepare kids for college and life after high school. Military leaders were always trying to recruit us instead of colleges. This school and town is mainly about politics. If you're wealthy then its a great school, if not then you're screwed. Some teachers were really good but others could care less about students. The principals cared more about the clothes that we wore than how much we were learning or should I say not learning.

I am in shock after reading these reviews. I graduated from Liberty High School and have will graduate with my Bachelors in Business Administration this December. First of all, I have absolutely no idea what the textbook statements are about. I never once had a math class and didn't have a textbook in it. I was fortunate to have two of the best math teachers around, Mrs. Cain and Coach T, and both went above and beyond to help me understand the material. I always had principals who tried to keep the school safe, and in order. If a student went to school and wanted to learn and stay out of trouble they did. I think the reviews that have been posted are from parents of students who dont have that attitude and are looking for excuses, or students with the same mentality.

Im going to try and be as honest as possible with this review. I was thrown off by some of the other reviews on this page but i know that some of them are actually true. Okay, no we dont have textbooks for our math classes but i believe that most of our math teachers here at this school are great teachers. There are plenty of extracurricular activities for students who go here, they need to make the effort to get involved. Some teachers wont care about their students but most at this school do, especially since most of them have lived here most of their lives or near here and have taught their parents and/or relatives. Yes, we have a serious drug problems but i cant name a school around here that doesnt.

I'm a current student and I agree that the whole system is terrible. All my teachers generally don't pay attention to the majority of the students except for the wealthy kids. They exclude many of the students from ever getting into an advance class. heir is always clashes between the students and the teachers.

Being a current student of Liberty I disagree with the negative reviews about my school. Not only do I believe that our educators teach us to the best of their ability, but the atmosphere between students and teachers is one that is not often achieved by other schools. Anyone who is serious about their education would be glad to go to Liberty

I attended school in Liberty and graduated the high school here. I just read the othe reveiws on this site and I just do not understand or believe them. I never had a problem getting my textbook to any of the classes that I took. For after school activities there was all the regular school game teams. We also could be in One Act, FFA, Band, Choir, Math Team, or many others. If you live in or around Liberty your child can go to school there, I did and now I am going for my Bachelors in college.

this whole school system is HORRIBLE. they do not care at all about the students they just want to get them in and out who cares if they learn anything or not. The 'handicap'/special needs children who are unfortunate to have to go to this school do not stand a chance. there is no programs at all for these kids. not to mention drugs running rampant in this district and kids getting away w/drugs on school property.

I'm senior that went to Liberty High last year.I have nothing 'positive' to review about this school. More like warning. The quality of academic programs are so preposterous, it's comical. Geometry classes do not even use text books. Instead, students are given work sheets to 'fill-in-the-blank' as the teacher does on the overhead. From experience, this is a terrible approach to teaching geometry. Teaching approach in general is ineffectual. Teachers barely pay attention to their students. I am now happily homeschooled.

Liberty has not taught my children anything besides how to tell when lunch time is.My kids complain on how they dont have text books for math, english , history, and other subjects they are into. Lberty should just shut down and move all the children to surrounding schools.

I am not real pleased with Liberty schools ..they do not seem to be child oriented as far as I am concerned. There is very little effort to create a place for each child here. These kids need more school functions geared towards all students offering their individual talents. It seems all to be geared for the more 'wealthy' kids. Really sad... school is not fun for a lot of the kids here... get in... get out, and thats it. That is wrong. More fun for all will no doubt bring up grades and spirits. All these kids deserve the best. School should not be about money... should be about kids.
