What I like about my high school are the teachers. They are very passionate and insightful. You'd even get to sit and talk to them during lunch. The education was pretty decent, and teachers want the students to learn. Another thing about my high school is the people. You could talk with pretty much everyone in your class, and being a small school you get to know everyone. The only thing I would like to see changes in school is offering more elective classes. There are very few electives that students are very interested in. Many students complain about this because they don’t have the class they want to take. So if the school can offer more classes then everyone will be happy.

Liberty High School is one of the best high schools in the central valley. LHS offers a variety of courses both the high school and college level for students to pursue their college and career goals. The staff at LHS is amazing and always willing to go out of their way to meet the needs of their students. The community atmosphere and support is also a special feature at LHS. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Liberty High School is a small school with the average class size of 120 students. It is located in the countryside of Madera, California. The school has many pros and cons because of its size. You get more of a personalized education in a sense because the teachers and staff know you by name. Liberty High is also very sports oriented. We have very good sports teams all across the board even though our size is small. Because of the low population at Liberty, there is often drama that you would not find at other schools, but nonetheless, I would recommend this school to just about anyone.
