I absolutely LOVED my four years at Liberty High School! I had wonderful teachers and extracurricular experiences that I will remember for the rest of my life. I enjoyed the diversity of courses offered to students and the academic rigor of the AP and honors courses. I felt prepared for college by my high school, unlike some of my college friends. The administration as a whole could do more to interact with students and listen to student concerns, but overall the school is incredible and I would want my future children to attend someday.

There’s a lot of great things to be said about Liberty. You’re not going to find another high school in the Lehigh valley that has as much school spirit as Lib. The teachers at Liberty are truly passionate about their jobs and are always there for their students. They are always more than willing to help before and after school if a student is struggling. One of the best things about Liberty is the diversity at that school. As you walk the halls, you can see students from different backgrounds all under one roof, not many schools have that. Don’t even get me started on the wide range of extracurricular activities you can participate in, there is literally something for everyone(there is even a jigsaw puzzle club). The only downside to Liberty is that there’s not enough student parking spaces. If you want to get a good parking spot, best believe you’re gonna have to get to school at 6:50. Especially in the fall when the band students have early morning rehearsals.
I went to high school at Liberty and graduated in 2019. Liberty was the first public school I attended and absolutely loved it. I found a home in over 5 clubs I was a part of. Included one that targeted my Hispanic culture. I was academically challenged in their great selection of AP courses. It's easy to create a great network of individuals of both teachers, administrators and friends at Liberty High School. If you're a parent deciding between this public school and any charter schools, please allow your child to experience the diversity of Liberty.
