Liberty Senior High School Reviews

Liberty has historically been the poorest school/region within ISD. Nestled between Cougar and Tiger Mountain, the Renton Highlands was once a rural, predominantly white place. Meanwhile, the rest of Issaquah has been a cushy hub for wealthy Seattle commuters, many of whom have immigrated from abroad to the Puget Sound region to work for major tech companies. The wealth of Issaquah-Sammamish-Newcastle has made ISD well funded and successful. With access to great schools, the Liberty region has been rapidly gentrifying, with house prices going up more than $200,000 where I live in the past decade. This has resulted in a dynamic feel at Liberty, involving a lot of different perspectives. The influx of wealth has resulted in greater opportunity for people who have been living here for a long time, and it seems to be a win-win situation. However, it makes me a little sad that what used to be a diamond in the rough is becoming homogenized, with lower-middle class families being priced out.

I am currently a freshman attending Liberty Senior High School. So far, my experience has been swell. I've learned to integrate into the family-like culture with the help of our fellow Patriots, who wish to ease our transition from middle school to high school. Opinions, ranging from students to teachers to our administration, are heard and Liberty has provided this sense of community beyond the interior of the school walls. However, there are somethings I hope to see change as I progress through my high school journey. My main concern would be the diversity. I understand that diversity isn't really something that the school can change, but at least looking beyond the color of the student's skin. I chose this as one of the problems that Liberty could fix because recently I have faced a bit of racism due to my ethnicity. Just because I was Asian, I was taunted for causing the corona virus. Overall, I hope to see Liberty put forth a better foot in the upcoming years.
One of the top rated schools in the area -- and for good reason! The staff, students and facilities are top notch. This school has a great sense of community that takes pride in their academics and athletics. Liberty continually raises the bar higher each passing year and is consistently ranked evenly with its other Issaquah high school peers.
