Liberty Hill High gets top grades for academics
While Rancho Sienna’s youngest students are excited about the opening of state-of-the-art campus opened in 2013.
In just a few years, Liberty Hill High has earned top scores from several school review organizations. The school has an overall A grade from Children at Risk, and it has an 8 (out of 10) score from GreatSchools.org.
Liberty Hill High has an overall grade of A- from Niche.com, with an A- in Academics, a B for Teachers, an A for Clubs & Activities, a B+ for College Readiness, and an A- for Health & Safety.
These grades are based on Niche’s rigorous analysis of data from the U.S. Department of Education. Ranking factors include state test scores, college readiness, graduation rates, SAT/ACT scores, teacher quality, public school district ratings and more. Niche also analyses reviews from parents and students.
Designed to accommodate up to 1,600 students, Liberty Hill High School has a current enrolment of approximately 950 students, with an average class size of 25 (based on 2016 data). The student-teacher ratio of 15:1 is below the national average, and the graduation rate is 97%.
The district worked with Dell Inc. to wire the new campus with end-to-end technology that advances interactive and personalized learning, helping students develop the skills they need for success in an increasingly digital world. The school has eight computer labs, where students can work on assignments and create next generation projects such as digital portfolios and websites.
Other highlights include the light-flooded Fine Arts Foyer, the hub of the school’s music and drama programs. The Library is open and airy, with comfortable seating areas and study desks replacing the traditional rows of bookcases. The Career and Tech curriculum includes popular offerings such as Culinary Arts and Journalism programs. Athletics are another focal point, from the 1,100-seat indoor gym to outdoor facilities for football, softball, soccer and tennis.
Liberty Hill High has a partnership with Austin Community College, allowing students to graduate with up to 18 hours of college credit at no cost.
