Liberty High School is one of our most diverse schools. There are many sports, clubs and other activities to participate in. The administration is also friendly and the open campus is great. The teachers are always friendly and understand their students situations. Liberty High School has a great agriculture program with hands on activities and amazing teachers. Our softball program is also one of the best in the state I believe. Everyone here is like a family and you never get tired of it. I vividly remember my first day, and I will always cherish that. Minutemen succeed, no exceptions.

Liberty High is filled with pride both for athletics and for the arts, but most importantly for the students themselves. No student is left behind at Liberty. There is plenty to do around the school with clubs for all interests. The education that is received from Liberty prepares its students for life after school because Minutemen Succeed No Exceptions.
Liberty High School is an average high school. The majority of the teachers care about the students. However, they are not necessarily the most qualified. Unfortunately, the school is geared to passing SOL tests each year rather than building good foundations for increased education. The sports programs are weak because the Athletic Director does nothing to improve the coaches, the teams, or the facilities. The administration cares but is not good at follow through. There is little communication with the parents or information to promote the success of the students during and after high school. The school is one of three in the county and much of the county funding goes to another high school with higher income families.
