Like all of the the other school sin Fowler, Fremont lacks funding and creative programming. The tax base is low. Many of the students are English as a second language. The Principal works very hard but, it takes more than one person to raise a village.

My daughter attended Fremont for three years and received superior education from a magnificent staff! The principal and teachers were always available to discuss our concerns and provided our daughter with the skills necessary to succeed in junior high. They should be commended and the school district should be very proud of Fremont! There is simply no words to express our gratitude for their efforts. Thanks!!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.
