The signs are all there. Somewhere, off in the distance, the Liberty Hill High School band can be heard practicing the songs they will perform at halftime. The pop of leather and the sounds of footballs being punted are also a sure sign that the gridiron season is just around the corner and the Liberty Hill Panthers will be ready! And eyes of the children of all ages, who have been playing around the pool at MorningStar during the summer, are sparkling with excitement, because they will soon be “hanging” with their friends when everyone goes back to school!

When it’s time to go back to school, the families who live in the MorningStar community are reminded what a special place this part of the Hill Country of Texas really is. Why? The schools where they attend – the Liberty Hill I.S.D. – are second to none!

Valuable Lessons at MorningStar

MorningStar, located just north of highway 29 on the new Kauffman loop, near Austin is far enough away and close enough for convenient access to one of the nation’s most dynamic cities. It boasts of resort-style amenities, such as the amenity center which features a lap pool, open-air pavilion, fire pit and magnificent children’s play area. The parks, greenbelts and ponds were all thoughtfully placed or preserved at MorningStar to enhance the area’s natural beauty and are spectacular, year-round. It features some of the best builders in the region.

However, for families with school aged children, the Liberty Hill School District is its most important benefit.

The district received an “A” ranking on Niche’s 2019 Best Schools list, scoring high marks for academics, teachers, college readiness, clubs & activities, resources & facilities and sports. In addition, Niche named Liberty Hill ISD in the Top 10 (#8 of 996 schools) on the 2019 list of “Best School Districts for Athletes in Texas!”

The district is also designated as a “District of Innovation.” This allows traditional independent school districts to access most of the flexibilities of Texas charter schools. The district maintains a student-teacher ratio of 15:1 leading to an overall graduation rate of 95 percent! Plus, the Liberty Hill extra-curricular programs are innovative and inclusive and offer children many ways to excel.

Unlike most urban schools and even some fast-growing suburban community schools, Liberty Hill has invested its resources to ensure that these exemplary schools have room for growth and they have state-of-the-art learning technology. The district has also attracted some of the “best and brightest” teachers and administrators in the country. With the advantageous student-to- teacher ratio, the teachers know their students and parents and are dedicated to giving them personalized attention.
