I think it’s safe to assume that a large percent of the general population at Liberty has watched the movie Mean Girls, or has heard of it.

Students, teachers, and even administrators are always comparing Liberty High School to other high schools (especially Issaquah and Skyline) in things such as test scores, sports, and even the overall quality of the school.

Filed under Column, Online Exclusives
