“I’ve personally grown academically and socially because when I was in my last school, I wasn’t very talkative as I am now and my grades aren’t as good as they are now. I’m on honor roll and before I was getting C’s in a lot of classes...and my teachers weren’t really giving me that time to be able to get my grade back on track.”
Something that makes LIbertas unique is the fact that it’s a very close community and that everyone knows everybody, even if it’s your teacher or not.”
“When I was in other schools, they didn’t really care about the student’s feelings. But here, they make sure you’re doing good in and out of school, not just here."
“What makes LIbertas right for me is I feel every since 7th grade, I feel more growth. We have such a diverse community, it’s really helpful to get so many perspectives on your work or really anything that bothers you or something that you need help on. It’s easy to pay attention because the teachers are always so supportive.”
We believe in creating a school environment that prioritizes student academic achievement, safety, character development while also creating space for kids to be kids. Aspects of our program designed to achieve this include:
- Recess period for all students in Lower Academy (6-8 Grade)
- Creating a Specials (formerly known as Enrichment) block where students can choose their class each quarter. Options include: dance and physical education
- Quarterly academic achievement celebrations including Reading Red Carpet for all students who grew F&P literacy level and Honors Program for all students who earned high/honors in grades
- Monthly grade community meetings and student events such as the Middle School Neon Dance
- Community Events including Hispanic Heritage movie Outdoor Movie Night and LACS Trunk or Treat.
Middle and high school years create a formative period in a student’s life and we strive to provide opportunities throughout the day, week, month, quarter, and year for them to just be kids and to create community with their peers, their teachers, and families.

Josie grew TEN reading levels since August! We’re so proud of him and we can’t wait to see how much he keeps growing this year.
Shout out to our 9th grader, Johaniris! She showed up and showed out for our “Rep Your Heritage Day” contest. Happy Latino Heritage Month!
