What I loved about Jackson Liberty High School the most was the accepting environment. Our principal Ms. Maureen Butler made it her priority to see that every student's sexual orientation, race, religion, etc. were accepted and those who did not were taught the importance of acceptance and kindness. We have so many clubs that embrace the differences of the students. Clubs that include the multicultural club and the Fellow Christian Athletes. Some things I would change about this school would be how it does not properly prepare you for the real world. In this school, everyone's a winner. And sadly the real world, you don't always win. Though it helps with grades and overall GPA, the teachers here are very lenient and “pass” you if they feel you should, meaning they can minipulate your grade to their descretion. This hurts college readiness skills.

The principal is highly sexist, and will go as far as to side with female bullies when the victim is male. This is verified not only by the stance she takes, but by the side she chooses to listen to as well. If you’re male, you will be punished before your side of the story is told. It seems she fails to realize that the most common strategy of female bullying against men, is “technical” accusations of “misconduct” regardless of the merit they hold. The easiest being “ I feel threatened”. Keep in mind, a threat does not have to be made, in order for that line to be used, and reciprocated with harsh discipline against the accused. This can make a fairly well behaved young man, feel like a outcasted monster, because his emotions will not be taken seriously. This of course, does not pertain to every circumstance - but it happens often enough for the vice principal to share the same sentiment.

Other than that, the other staff are excellent.
Jackson Liberty High School provides various level of coursework for students and has different activities to suit various students' interests. While I enjoyed my time at Liberty, the school itself was run very strictly and certain policies made it difficult for students to enjoy after school activities and to find places to study after school. Overall the teachers are what really make up the heart of Liberty. They provide guidance and aid whenever needed if you are lucky enough to study with the right ones and really take advantage of all that they have to offer you.
