History

Originally, Libermann High was intended to be a middle school in the city of Toronto. The idea for the school usage was changed after the school was built and was instead to be used by students of grades 9 to OAC. Because the building was designed to accommodate a smaller student body, the school had to deal with perpetual overcrowding, requiring the construction of additions and alterations. Portables were built for the surplus of students. Over a period of many years, the school underwent additional construction projects such as expanding the gymnasium, adding an annex, and adding an entire new section containing an office, atrium and cafetorium.

Overview

Surroundings

The school is surrounded by the Brimley Woods forest to the north, Charles O’ Bick Police Academy and a fire hall to the west, a ravine to the east, and an arterial road, Finch Avenue East to the south.

Programs

Libermann High offers the required courses to obtain the diploma, as well as other elective courses. Apart from having many different courses, the majority of them have different teaching and grade levels – some are prerequisite to others. Currently, Libermann High is not particularly famous for any one subject area; however the sports programs (namely track and field, volleyball and badminton) do bring the school fame.

Uniforms

During normal classes, students are expected to wear the school uniform – a combination of: gray dress pants, a white dress shirt, a golf shirt, a polo sweater, a knit sweater, a knit sweater-vest, a kilt with school colours, and black shoes.[2]

Campus

Libermann High accommodates a library and computer labs; some of the computers were donated through a Bill Gates program.

Student body

The student body is racially diverse in comparison to other cities. The number of students varies year to year from 750–1000, currently home to grades 7 to 12. The FL Catholic Elementary School program began in 2003; this added grade-gifted students in grade 7 and, eventually, students in grade 8 to attend the school. Graduates may stay for a fifth year even after the termination of OAC.
