Classes are too large. Some teachers are fabulous. Others maybe not. Some really great teachers have been wooed away to high-paying schools, which is sad. If I had the money, I would choose private.
As a senior at Liberty I have witnessed tremendous growth in just the last 4 years. Liberty is rapidly becoming a more affluent community with the growth in attendance, largely from Newcastle. Most teachers are well-educated and have a variety of real world experiences that they can use to enhance students' learning. From the newly installed solar panel to the award winning culinary arts and jouralism classes, Liberty has become a school that rivals the best in the state. With continually successful sports such as the football and soccer teams as well, I have really grown to love Liberty and its open, accepting student body. Liberty has the affluent community base without the pretentiousness of its neighboring high schools. If you seek a quality education within the highly sought-after issaquah school district yet without the distant, disconnected feeling that some of the wealthier communities can bring, definitely consider Liberty. I couldn't imagine a better school to prepare me for my post high school educaiton.
There have been big changes at Liberty the last few years especially with the new administration, taking a tougher stance, and making sure students are working hard to succeed. Liberty is in the planning stages for a major remodel that will benifit students in the next decade. Im proud to be a parents of a student at Liberty High School!
I am happy with teaching and support of teachers to my child.Their encourgment has helped my child to go further.I would also like to thank students for their cooperation.
I am a parent of a senior and freshman and I think Liberty is an excellent school. We are known for the quality of teachers, the Sr leadership of the administration, the kindness, dediciation. high achieving and down to earth student body and parents who care passionately about their families and their childrens' education. We are committed to Liberty and believe that due to the strength of our community our school is, by far, the best in our region.
I am a parent of a senior and I could not be more pleased with the quality of education at LHS. The AB schedule allowed my son to take a wide variety of classes that have given him areas to explore as well as areas to focus on. He has been able to participate in band, language, video production, foods, ceramics, photography and journalism while also allowing adequate time to pursue 6 AP classes over his years as well as honors classes and college in the classroom. His teachers have taken an active interest in his education and have provided opportunities for growth. In sports, he was involved in everything from track and cross-country to swimming, tennis, and baseball.LHS is a close- knit community where a diverse group of students are given opportunities to pursue their areas of interest and where teachers work hard to meet the needs of all students.
I graduated from Liberty In 2005. Since then, I have really valued my educational experience from there. This year, many of my peers from Liberty are graduating from the UW. I have consistently noticed that Liberty students boast some of the highest scores on exams at the UW (usually in the top 10%), and are well prepared in the sciences, english literature and mathmatics. High school was amazing and Im glad to see that the school carries on some traditions we started! Its a great day to be a patriot!
I am a Liberty alum class of '04. I felt my years at Liberty were well spent. The teachers are above average and the school goes out of the way to offer students every advantage. The extra curricular activities are quite varied. Although the school had some telling moments of conservative behavior towards teachers, I believe overall they do a great job of presenting a fairly balanced education for a public school. I feel proud to have attended Liberty.
I graduated from Liberty in 2006. I don't believe that there was a better school for me to attend. The teachers were wonderful and really challenged the students to push ourselves and enjoy learning. The student body as a whole was inviting to everyone who attended, and I was friends with many different types of people. The school traditions are the best of it's kind (Senior boys dressing up as the drill team during Homecoming week?). I cherish the memories I have of Liberty. I wish everyone else the experience I had.
Im very proud to have sent my daughter to Liberty. She was well prepared for her post- high school education at USC. Liberty was a place where popularity did not matter and all studnets respected eachother. I could not have asked for better school in my community!
Great opportunities to participate in meaningful extracurricular activities to augment the academic programs.
I attend LHS and it's a great school. The teachers are very kind and helpful and it's a great sports school. The Baseball and softball programs are superior, we make it into state tournaments just about every year. I do not think that Liberty is that snobby.
Great school with enthusiastic teachers! We recently moved to Newcastle from Orange County, California and this school is amazing! Keep up the awesome work!
I moved into this district because I was told about the fantastic schools. Stuck up snobby rich kids , but have parents that pay alot of taxes does not make a good school. I have found that alot of the teachers aren't any better than the kids. They are more worried about seeming COOL to teenagers than the job of helping educate the future of our civilation.
Great AP classes that are also 'College in High School' which requires no AP exam, but could get credit at BCC. The A/B schedule is great: each student can take max of 8 classes, attend 4 classes daily on every other days. It's longer period but efficient.
The academic programs at Liberty are competitive enough to get kids into better state schools across the nation, but without reaching to the community college Running Start programs it would be difficult to qualify for a Ivy League school. Music, art, sports and other extracurricular activities are better than most schools in the area, but could use some improvement and funding. They are well above neighboring school districts and most of the state but are not necissarily relative to today's student. There are many parents who work with and for the school to keep the involvement at a good level.
over all quality is good. Test scores are fairly good. Teachers are dedicated.
Liberty high school is a wonder, safe environment. The staff is helpful and kind. By attending liberty my student has been able to take two more classes than she would have been able to take in a regular High School.
Liberty is unlike any other high school. The school is growing at an astonishing rate. With people moving into the Newcastle, Renton and Issaquah areas, Liberty is taking in students from all these areas. The spirit and enthusiasm is unreal. They recently competed in a clothing drive where over 12,100 lbs of clothing were collected. The students not only collected the most clothes of 8 area high schools, but they nearly doubled the amount that any other school collected. There are few high schools, which compare to liberty academically. Throughout the past 5 years, I have seen Liberty transform into one of the areas top high schools. Liberty has helped to mold student futures since it opened in 1977. I am pleased to have such a great high school for the Issaquah community and surrounding areas.
I attended Liberty high school. It's a great school if youd dont mind attending an all white school. Out of he 1100 kids attending there are 26 african americans all together. There are no minority teachers either. If your looking for a diverse school with diverse opinions I suggest a different school and district other than Issaqauh.
