Fremont Open Plan is an exceptional school with dynamic teachers who nurture and guide our students to discover their own success through project based learning and whole child development philosophies. My twin daughters, which are polar opposites, have both succeeded in their own ways, both finding their confidence and voice because the the learning environment of FOP. Tired of traditional education, wanting to give your child a chance to excel in the future, then this is the school for you! Its a parent participation school, so if you like to be a part of all the fun at your child's school, you will love FOP.

These teachers go aboe and beyond what they are required to do. They care immensely and focus on each individual child to help guide them to succeed and improve at their pace.

This school is part of the peace builder community. Students are also given opportunities to make choices, rather than told to stay on task without understanding why. They have a cross age partnering aspect that makes the older kids responsible for the youngers during projects, school events and field trips. This teaches the kids respect, fairness and integrity.

I feel Fremont Open Plan has been a good fit for my son, I can't imagine him going anywhere else. He works at his pace all while learning to be accountable. And is totally allowed to be himself W/ staff and students.

Fremont Open Plan is a wonderful opportunity for young learners.I was concerned about the parent participation involvement but there are many opportunities to help aside from during the day and in the classroom. The teachers are extremely committed, effective and nurturing. The school principal does a great job of managing both sides of the school. I was initially concerned that the program wouldn't offer enough structure but it truly does. Theme based teaching rules!

The teachers and Principal are great. The Principal is extremely helpful and listens to the parents, she is kind , helpful, and easy to talk to; my son adores her. The office staff are rude and cold. The first day to register the office personal told me it was her job to request school records? Then whose job is it? She was not kind nor helpful. I cant believe she works with parents and children on a daily basis. Overall I like the school . I just wished they had money to do a complete over haul of the school it is a really old building and I was surprised that there are no computers in the class.
