November 19, 2015

Two years ago a few tons metal and wires were delivered to a new room off of the commons, and then beautifully crafted into what I believe to be the best part of our new school—The L’café. The L’café is so much more than just a meeting place for the culinary classes, it is so much more than...

November 19, 2015

The beginning of the 2015-2016 school year started with a dramatic transformation, as the previous Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday bell times were scraped and replaced with a new, rounded and less hair-tearing-indusive schedule.   In the dark ages, for as long as anyone at the school...

It’s your third year at Liberty, quickly approaching seniority in the Patriot books.

Through all of the homework and studying lies a hidden appreciation for honors English. This appreciation is not just for the course in general but for the teacher: Henry Level.
