I never witnessed a fight in this school. It's very comfortable and you don't get dizzy by the number of students since we all know this is a very small place. Depend on your preferences you should either love or hate the fact that this school is not as big as others. You get to know everyone in your grade, and that's something great if you like social interaction. Don't worry, if you are antisocial like me, you will also fit into this environment. Quiet, comfortable... Am I the only one who dislike big classroom with more than 30 students? Well, Liberty does not have that. Teachers DO NOT have preferences in students. If they call your attention is because you were doing something wrong. Do not complain!
The school work is precisely enough and great to learn what is needed. We have around 6 clubs going on right now. The teachers are extremely nice. It's true that we don't have as much financial support as other schools, but I always see the staff trying to attend our concerns.

Currently I am a Junior here at Liberty High School and my experience here has been amazing. Liberty High school is a silver medal school it has a 100% graduation rate along side McNair and Infinity High school. We are a very small school who accepts 60 students every year. Out classes are very small so the biggest class size is 20 students. We have a lot of clubs like Art, Anime, Coding, Production, Robotics, Future Educators, Model UN, Peer Leading, Yearbook, Dance, Student Council, School Ambassadors and etc. Liberty High School promotes Respect, Honesty, and Dedication. We have fun celebrations for Black History Month, Hispanic Heritage, Talent Show, and the family Reunion every summer before the start of school. We offer a large variety of AP courses like Environmental Science, Stats, English lang and comp/ lit and comp, Calculus Aviery World History 🏰Calculus AB World History 🏰 US history Spanish language and culture in literature and culture
I'm only a sophomore, and honestly the Liberty High School is a great school. With being such a small school it provides an opportunity for more students to shine academically. It has multiple leadership programs, Purging which is a program that allows student to go to school for half the day then leave around lunch and work. Opportunities such as those are great to be apart of not only for your personal gain but also for colleges and jobs. Yes, Liberty doesn't have sports but to make up for that we have a lot of in school activities and events. If you're to arts Liberty has an amazing art teacher constantly provides students with a chance to enter in different art competitions.
