Since 1913, Liberty High has been committed to helping students achieve academic excellence in a safe, supportive environment.
Marcus Cole, in his speech, in "The Little Girl"

S01E09-Tape-5-Side-A-055-Jane-Childs

Vice-Principal Jane Childs

The school has been through very turbulent situations with many events that have occurred throughout the course of the series. Starting with drug use, alcohol use, many sexual assaults involving girls after the founding of The Clubhouse, Jeff Atkins's death, Hannah Baker's Death, as well as Tyler Down's attempted school shooting on school campus. After Hannah Baker's Death, her parents sued the school for the liability of their daughter's death. The lawsuit started sometime before the events of the first season and continued to trial of Andrew and Olivia Baker vs The Evergreen County School District, where students along with faculty had testified about the circumstances around Hannah Baker's death and the bullying culture at the school. 

The school has also rivaled with another school called Hillcrest High School. Hillcrest is implied to be a more competitive school. It is also strongly implied that the jocks, or student athletes in particular, are higher up in the hierarchy system according to and classified by other students. This causes tension between the faculty with other students and some parents as well. Between seasons, characters transfer or move to another school or graduate from the school.

GymnasiumEdit

The Gym.

The gymnasium is where students participate in P.E. activities, such as basketball, volleyball, baseball, wrestling teams, and in pep rallies and assembly meetings. Students have to dress out and change into proper uniform before they can participate in sports and P.E. There are also dances held in the gym during formal events, such as the Spring Fling and the Winter Formal. During Halloween, there was a costume contest held for the student with the best costume for a prize of $200. In Season 3, there was an assembly meeting held by the new student body president Jessica Davis, who had held an public apology assembly meeting with students and staff from Hillcrest. The assembly meeting also addressed sexual assault with survivors in the audience speaking up at the assembly.

BathroomsEdit

Like in many public buildings, the school has boys' and girls' restrooms either with and without stalls. Students normally attend while the staff do not usually come in. Some of the graffiti writing on the walls are made by some students who attend Liberty, often to spread rumors. Olivia Baker had encountered this when she was upset and started to take pictures as proof that her daughter was bullied and harassed. The walls were later painted so the messages were erased. Principal Gary Bolan and Counselor Porter saw the messages and wondered how it would hold up against the lawsuit against the school.

The ClubhouseEdit

The Clubhouse is a shed located in a forest on the school's property. The Clubhouse is revealed in Season 2. It was founded by Rick Wlodimierz, the coach for the boys' baseball teams. It started the sexual assault culture at Liberty with partying, drugs, and alcohol. It made Liberty took a turn for the worse as many boys rape girls in the The Clubhouse.

SanctionsEdit

Note: This section is a stub. You can help 13 Reasons Why Wiki by expanding it.
The school has held student-based sanctions, such as the Lost and Found magazine hosted by Ryan Shaver. It was called into attention into Hannah Baker's Death after it had published Hannah Baker's poem to describe her personal feelings. Ryan Shaver was apparently going to publish a memorial for Hannah Baker, as Tyler took pictures for her memorial. But Mr. Porter forbade him to publish any more articles in the school magazine.

The poems that Hannah had written were called into attention by the lawyers in Hannah's trial to correlate how her personal feelings about suicide were ignored by school faculty. It had revealed that Hannah had published more stories about her time in The Clubhouse which were revealed in Season 2.


Honor BoardEdit

The school has a Student Honor Board system to conduct a formal hearings in minor cases of violations of the Honor Code and academic integrity policies, such as cheating and minor theft. The honor board holds the power to decide the fate of the school's best interest using a student democracy system to conduct votes.  One example of when the students of the Honor Board were called into session was a fight between Alex Standall and Montgomery de la Cruz. Members conducting the hearing were president Marcus Cole, recording secretary Courtney Crimsen, Clay Jensen, and two unnamed students. The fight occured off school grounds so it was out of the school's juristriction so the Jane Childs and Kevin Porter decided that the Honor Board would be the best form of student body to decide the fate of Monty and Alex. 

The administrative advisors to the Honor Board are vice principal Jane Childs and counselor Kevin Porter. These advisors have a voice but no vote. 

Students are able to particate being part of the honor board as it adds credibility to thier college applications. Courtney became the Student Body President after Marcus, who she calls a "sexist pig who likes strippers", was ousted form the position. She encouraged Jessica to run for next year's president, as she herself would soon graduate.
