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.

Liberty High School is an amazing school in an urban area with so many activities for those who seek them. However, Liberty High School can definitely try to give incentives to students more to do better. Additionally, its scientifically proven that students learn best in hands on activities so more of that needs to be implemented. And lastly, though its understood that we have a low budget we should fundraiser as much as possible to start up sport clubs, etc...
Liberty high school has a small student population and a very comfortable environment that proves highly conducive of academic proficiency. Additionally, Principal Monica Grazilla has absolutely enveloped herself to the betterment of the work atmosphere, student-teacher relationship, and all around scholastic productivity. Liberty High School is truly my home away from home.
