Notable alumni[edit]

Controversies[edit]

Liberty High staff violated section 35183.3 of the California Education Code when they refused to allow a U.S. Army Reserve Private Fist Class to attend his graduation in Army Class A uniform. On June 9th 2017 school officials told PFC Harland J Fletcher would not be allowed to walk unless he wore a robe over the uniform. The covering of a Class A uniform in this manner is a violation of Army rules. PFC Fletcher was told he, “can pick up the diploma in the office on Monday.” [2]
