I am a senior in Liberty High School. This is my third year in Liberty while it is my last year in Liberty. Although the school is small than other, I am still very honored that I can study in this school. I am a immigrant who not grow up in America, but it school grow me up like a baby to a man. All of the teachers are treating well toward students, they help us as possible as they can. And some teachers would tutoring us in any times- morning before the class, lunch time, and after school, it is why I like this school. Also, I could meet difference student with difference language.
It has been a real pleasure to attend this school. It’s welcoming to everyone and the people that work there make you feel that you are important for them. Great school for a newcomer!
