Liberty High School opened as a charter school in 1996 for students in 9th through 12th grades. The school on average has 64 students enrolled per year. The school focuses on “school to work training” with a few extra curricular activities such as drama, sculpture, drawing, photography, computer arts, film production, dance, and basketball. Most students that attend the school are at risk meaning they may not graduate high school for all kinds of reasons from working while attending school or behind in credits. The school works with each student on a personal level to help them reach their goals.
Parents expressed they are pleased with the school, staff, the 4 day school week, and the ability to do some of the work online. The class sizes are very small with only around 7 students, which is perfect for providing the attention each student needs to succeed.
The AIMS series of testing evaluates the performance of students to measure if they are performing at the standards set by the state. The students at this school since most are behind in credits did fairly well on the exams. In reading, the percentage of students that passed the reading exam was 3% below the state average, in science 25% below the average, in writing 26% below average, and in math 45% below the average. Even with such low scores, this does not necessarily mean the school is not doing its job. It just shows the school needs improvement. It would be your best interest to check out other schools and to talk to parents with students that attend Liberty High School to see if this school is the best for your child.
