At this school, there is always the chance of meeting amazing people who will help you through high school like it's nothing. I have met great friends who care about me through my mental health to my grades and vice versa. Most of the teachers and staff are exceptional as well, helping me with my work and questions whenever I have them. The rest of the teachers and staff do their jobs but fail to help and clarify content for the students. Some higher staff can be difficult to contact as well, such as counselors who control the schedules of the students. Due to personal experiences with trying to have some of my questions answered about my upcoming year's enrollment, the counselors can be seen as somewhat irresponsible in my eyes. The lack of voice the minor students have make it difficult for actual concerns to come to light because all the voice comes from the students who put themselves out there for attention. This school is good for opportunities, but not the content it promises.

This year, Liberal High School started a new program to make high school feel a little bit more like college. There have been good and bad factors in this transition. The school overall is good. The teachers and staff are great! Our principals and very good with the students as well.
I absolutely love high school. I love getting involved in ohr extra curriculars and being one of the many faces our student body gets to know. I encourage future and current high school student to do the same. It is beneficial in many areas including social involvement, academics, and relationships with your teachers/administartion.
