High School Department
Welcome to Liberty Academy's High School Department!
Liberty High School offers instructions to students in Grades 7 to 11 (Ages 12-18 years), and currently, the class sizes range between 8 and 18 students.
It is the pathway for academic excellence. It is known for creating academically strong, well rounded and spiritually enriched students. One of our special features is our use of Music Therapy to help the students to reach the desired level of development and performance, because it helps to build their self esteem, and confidence, helps to improve levels of concentration and reduces stress. The value added to our students is very significant in the education world, as all of our students are made to feel as though they can achieve anything that they set their minds to. Another important feature of our department is the excellent relationships that we develop with our most important stakeholders; the parents.
We operate in a stimulating environment, with highly qualified and competent teachers; most of whom have excellent pedagogical skills and knowledge of the content areas. Even our past students return to seek tutoring from them.
To date, the school has excelled in the Performing Arts, obtaining Gold and Silver medals for Drama in the Festival Competition in 2009 and 2010 respectively. Our athletes got a Silver medal in the 4 X100 (Gibson Relays) in 2013.
Our first cohort of graduating students, performed very well in the CSEC examinations ( 2010), attaining 100% passes in Information Technology, Integrated Science, Office Administration, Biology, Chemistry, English Language, English Literature, Food and Nutrition and Principles of Business. Some of the other percentages were: 83% in Principles of Accounts, 75% Social Studies & 71% Geography, thus achieving an overall pass rate of 81%. In 2013, the pass rates have continued to be high with the school obtaining 100% passes in 8 of the 13 subjects.
Liberty has formed a partnership with Vector Technology Institute, to establish a Technology Training Centre. Vector is a well-recognized, registered tertiary training institution that is based in Kingston. The aim is to deliver hands-on instructions, in areas such as, Solar Electricity Technology, Computer Programming, Web Page Design and Basics of Electronics. These courses will improve the participants’ opportunities for jobs. The courses are accredited by examining bodies such as CISCO Networking Academy, Fiber Optics Association (FOA), and the University Council of Jamaica.
Liberty High School is indeed poised for greatness!
