We are a family which no longer attends due to an Army PCS. However I thought it to be important to report on the long term academics being taught here. (This may be state or county not sure) Both of my children 4th grade and 6th grade (have others but didn't attend Fred) are well behind in LA and especially in math. My children by their new school standards had to be re taught math in basic form because the original teaching (at Fred) was plain "ridiculous" (their words not mine).. Please question your instruction especially in crucial areas of math and LA..

My son came to Frederickson his kindergarten year from a private school. Since he has been at Frederickson he has excelled in his school work and relationships with both teachers and piers. I could not be happier with this school. The teachers are great and EDCC program is also great.

Fred is a decent school. The principal is trying her hardest. She can be approachable. The incidents about the bottles is true cause my child came and told me how they had earned more coupons for helping clean up. The hold trimester award ceremonies were some kids are selected and are awarded. Your kid will get some kind of award once a year. The gates are open. Parents should stop by the office to sign in, its thier responsibility. There are a ton of fundraisers that can be kind of a turn off. I wish they would either do one big one or spilt it into two. My family members complained about all the fundraisers. I really felt like this year was wasted for my child. There was bullying when they first got there. Parents aren't active in PFC.

We love our school! We have been with Frederiksen Elementary for 2 years now. My daughter is in second grade and has an incredible teacher. We have been so blessed with the caring and proactive staff at this school. The principal is at every event and highly visible throughout the day. The test scores increased the last school year (they are not a school that teaches to the test but last year was vital that test scores increased to stay out of Program Improvement). The PFC is active and work hard to bring quality events to the students. (Re:12/24/2012 Post) Security has been increased and new measures have been implemented. The school has performed drills to address a possible shooter/unwanted individual and teachers know the expectations. I have no concern about the safety of my child while at Frederiksen. Also, students are not encouraged to clean up bottles. The custodian walks the perimeter of the school to remove any items like beer cans/bottles before kids can find them. It doesn't happen often, but if it does the yard supervisors inform the custodian who takes care of the situation.

I do not normally respond or post ratings however as I received a notice of a "new posting" regarding our school I had to read and "respond". I am a parent of 2 children at Fred (5th grader and a 2nd grader) and sadly I agree with the 12/24 post. I do agree that the school is trying very hard to turn themselves around. However the posts about security and liquor/beer bottles are very true. The gates still remain opened and unlocked all day and maybe they have implemented "drills" for unwanted individuals, they still leave the grounds unsecured during the day. Through the six years I have been at the school I never noticed this until last year when there was a "shooting incident" (not on the campus and nothing to do with the school itself) down the street. It made me question why all gates were accessible to just about anyone The school is trying but is really not there yet. I have hopes, my oldest will be leaving for middle school however my little one has no choice but to remain. I am hoping they will see the purpose in locking the gates like the rest of the elementary schools in the area.. So the end remark here is "not quite there yet" ;)

We came late last year, so this will be our first full year of school... we are very happy so far. The teachers are great, parents are very friendly and welcoming! There's a close-knit vibe at this school, and for a family that has moved a lot (we used to be a military family), it's a nice "homey" feeling. I see a lot of parents who are highly involved.

Entering our second year here and couldn't be happier. The teachers are wonderful, the principal very involved and caring and the parent involvement high. The improvements that have been made to the exterior of the school make it look more like the quality school it is.

Frederiksen Elementary is one of the most well balanced elementary schools in Alameda county. Since class sizes are small, teachers are able to provide one on one support to all students. Most importantly, education is taught at all levels truly not leaving any student behind. I hold Frederiksen in high regard as a great place for students to learn and transition into well mannered, intelligent, down to earth adults. Great job and kudos to the City of Dublin. You have kept the down home tradition in the city of dublin balancing expansion with true quality. Cheers

I am a parent of a first grader here. The school's parent community is thriving! I manages to succeed even though they serve the bulk of socio and economically disavantage students in the district. Teachers are caring and have years of experience.

As a parent of a 1st grader at Fred, I believe this is an excellent school. They have great extra curricular activities for the kids that my daughter has loved attending this year. As a parent and a former student I recomend this school.

Great, caring teachers. Fred has a very active Parent Faculty Club and strong sense of community. The activities offered enrich students lives and interests in many ways. The school is diverse, safe and caring. I have sent 3 children there and would highly recommend the vast majority of the teachers there as very good to outstanding. 5th grade teachers there are the cream of the crop! Facilities could use updating, However, it is on the agenda to be upgraded by the DUSD.

My children (2) have been at this school for going on 3 yrs. We are very happy with the school and teachers for the most part. They have a high API score in the high 800's, I beleive. They have good quality academic programs, that my children have benefited from. They have a P.E., and Fine Arts class every week. They can join band also. There are fun activities for families to participate in all school year long (Disco Bingo, family letter writing night, bedtime books, etc.). The level of parent involvement is high. They have a strong PFC (Parent Faculty Committee). A new principal has started this year. I've heard good things about her.

Having been a 'Fred' parent since 1991, I've seen a lot of changes throughout the years in this school. We are in the process of getting a new principal (the previous one left for Sacramento Board of Education to help train new principals for California schools). The teaching staff are always exploring new and effective ways to help students achieve academic excellence and prepare for middle school. The parent/faculty club is credited devoted parent volunteers, teachers, and staff to insure that ensures we have music, art, sports and other extracurricular acitivities that bring families together. Moral character traits such as respecting and helping others is instilled in students as early as Kindergarten to help build a strong foundation to meet challenges in later grades. Overall, my children and I have enjoyed the supportive atmosphere fostered in this school.
