The district looks at functional building capacity. Elementary schools have a functional capacity of 800 or 900 students, middle schools have a functional capacity of 1,100 – 1,200 students and the high school will serve up to 2,400. The district is committed to a 22:1 ratio for grades kindergarten through fourth and 25:1 at the fifth-grade level, allowing for smaller classroom sizes. Due to rapid growth and as developments rise in certain areas, more neighborhoods could see changes on a more frequent basis.
The objective is to move students closer to a school during the rezoning process, however, in order to effectively and efficiently use space that is not always possible. Liberty Hill ISD believes the success of each student is a shared responsibility between the families, schools, and communities. The curriculum is the same throughout LHISD, all programs are consistent among the schools, and the campuses are very similar. Teachers attend the same professional development training and have access to the same resources across the school district.
