Region 13 - Liberty Hill Independent School District

About Liberty Hill ISD

Liberty Hill Independent School District (ISD) serves more than 2,200 students across 100 square miles of rural Williamson County, Texas. Because the community of Liberty Hill is located just thirty miles northwest of the capital city of Austin, residents can enjoy the tranquility of a rural setting with all the convenience of living near a large urban area.

The district currently has one elementary school for Pre-K through first grade, one elementary school for second through fourth grade, an intermediate school for fifth and sixth grade, a junior high school for seventh and eighth grade, and a high school for grades nine through twelve. Four of the five campuses received “Recognized” ratings from the Texas Education Agency’s Academic Excellence Indicator System, meaning that each demographic group had at least a 75% passing rate on each section of the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills. The high school was only two passing scores on the science portion short of receiving the district’s fifth “Recognized” rating. Still, Liberty Hill ISD as a whole was one of just 287 across the state and one of just six of the fifty-one total districts in Region XIII to receive this honor. As the district continues to strive for excellence, administrators have set the lofty goal of achieving an “Exemplary” rating for the district as a whole and for each individual campus.

In addition to receiving strong marks for their TAKS scores, Liberty Hill ISD also received a number of Gold Performance Acknowledgments for a variety of achievements, including attendance, strong scores on AP/IB Tests, and commendations in reading, writing, social studies, and mathematics. The Texas Education Agency also recognized Liberty Hill ISD as a “Character Plus” District.

Along with its academic success, Liberty Hill ISD also takes great pride in its athletic department. Most recently, the high school women’s basketball team won the District 8-3A title. The track and field team also advanced to the Region I semifinals after winning the area title. Full coverage of all panther events can now be heard on local radio, on K-MAC Sports.
