I do agree that Freedom High School does have it's problems, I just wonder when it became the principals job to stop your son/daughters problems? His job is to control the issues at Freedom, yes. But there are to many finger pointing parents at Freedom

Test scores are now up and Freedom just earned 'California Distinguished School' status. But don't be fooled. Do your homework on this school.

Leadership hasn't been very impressive during the years my children have attended Freedom.

Limited quality clubs, community orientated programs. Principal volta fails to address the root of problems, thus they continue,only worse. I encourage one on one visits with your students teachers. Become involved. Students that are not top in the class seem to fall by the wayside, and when your finally notifed, it's too late! This school is not one for a student with any type of learning disability. This school is fine for a student who can pick things up in a short period (30 mins.), But if a student requires assistance or some one-on-one learning, go elsewhere. Again, principal volta is all talk, no action! Staff could care less about your child and their progress.

This is a high school with wonderful parent involvement and some wonderful administrators and teachers. I like how they have academic buildings that your child stays with for 4 years. The academic program is very diverse and growing each year. I have been very happy with the school. My son is a quieter young man and has made many great friends. There has been no harrassment or problems with troubled students. My son is a senior and has had a great experience.

This is my son's first year at freedom and from what I have seen it seems to be a pretty good place if you want to learn...however if your child is having a difficult time with the transmission from jr. high to high school you better stay on top of it all or he/she may get lost in the shuffle.

Freedom High School has a diverse population, and I know the staff is dedicated to bringing a balanced strong education to its student body. Of particular strengh is the Special Education Programs and curriculum.

We are new to this area however, to date I feel more confident that my childs best interest is very much important. I wish that they had some way to control the speeding of young and old drivers on Neroly as well as installing walkways for the children to walk to and from home.

Freedom High School has a great teaching system. I have two children at Freedom High School. My oldest was a 'D' student in Algebra 1 at Carquinez Middle School in Crockett. When she began to attend Freedom High School in 9th grade she became one of the top students in her Algebra class. She is now a sophmore and continues to hold on to progress in all of her studies, she is an 'A'-'B' student. My other child was also struggling and when he began school at Freedom High School this year as a Freshmen he also has progressed in all of his studies, he is an 'A'-'B'-'C' student. This school is truly one of the Great Schools.

Freedom High school is overall a good school. There is a somewhat strict dress code, people don't get away with wearing whatever they want (I do not agree with one of the comments above) and the campus staff does try to insure safety to the best of their abilities. The comment above about drag racing is also not true. Some kids do speed, but that doesn't mean that it happens all the time, and a lot of the kids that do it get in trouble. To help this problem, the school is currently thinking about ways to help insure the safety of their high school drivers. This school is not a bad one, every year we are somewhat improving on our test scores and more and more graduates are continuing on with a secondary education (College). Freedom offers certain amounts of scholarships for students to attend LMC (a community college).

I feel this school is more interested in the P.C. than the academia. My child will come home with a liberally based point of veiw that she got from the teacher as opposed to just being taught the subject.

I am a student at Freedom High School, and having attended high schools in Washington state, Antioch, CA, and San Jose, CA, I feel Freedom is a great school. At this school you have a better opportunity to make good choices for yourself. The staff is great, although there are a few... and you know who you are... that need to get the boot. I feel the principal is genuinely concerned with the students interests seeing as how he just helped me today get a major issue straightened out, and has many times in the past. Although the sports teams don't get the highest rankings, they still have a good program going and as far as education... it is easy to want to learn in the environment the school provides. Rarely do I feel stressed about school assignments or tests, and my teachers definately know what they are teaching.

This school is great! It's almost like it's imaginary in that all the students get along so well! I have heard this from many students and teachers here. Yes- there's the occasional fights, but the 'groups' blend in together more. For the most part the teachers are great, and I like that they teach german here. However, the best part of this school is the schedule! They have 4 classes a day- every other day- so that they get 1h20minutes in each class, and they dont have to go to each class everyday- so they are less burned out. I personally feel its a great school.

Academics at Freedom are good for UC admissions, there is a very diverse range of extracurricular activities, the administration, although, is over-reactive. They give students a very difficult time for minor offences. Dress code is over-restrictive, and the Principal is opressive. Freedom can be a better school with: * Longer passing periods * Advisory daily * Smaller class sizes * Change in administration


Posted August 26, 2003

Freedom High is very diverse high school. In many ways it exceeds the expectations of a school from the interest and concern of teachers and staff members. I am delighted to have such an organized, and diligent school in my neighborhood.


Posted August 22, 2003

The school is out of control. Violence and overcrowding is alarming. Dress code is non-existent. Girls are allowed to wear clothes that a street walker wears. Parking lot and streets around the school are for drag racing. Police and school authorities are useless. I do not recommend sending your student to this school.

I have had 2 students graduate from Freedom. Overall it seems to be a good school and my children were happy. The only complaint I do have is the teaching in math. I have spoken to other parents and they agree. Several of these have tutors for their students. When these students enter college they are having to take high school math again.

Posted May 4, 2003

The principal is more interested in his career and the perception of the school in a politically correct light than student achievement. This is evidenced by test scores achieved at the school and the failure of the school to improve (again, as shown in test scores). Foremost should be aquisition of a student-focused leadership. Current leadership is not in the long term interest of the school, the students or the community.

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.

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.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
