As an incoming parent of a new student, coming into the office for the very first time with many questions, I was very frustrated upon leaving. The front desk person was rude and her answers to my questions were very vague. The registrar was even more rude, when told there was an incoming sophmore her response was "what about him?" right in front of me! As a family that is new to the city and school, they should understand how stressful moving and beginning a new school can be. At this point based on the office experience alone, I will drive my son 4 cities away to his current highschool. Very sad staff would have attitudes such as this, especially when they are the first impression of the school to newcomers

Freedom High School has a student centered environment. The campus is always abuzz with activities. Teachers collaborate on a regular basis to prepare a rigorous curriculum and prepare students for the future. Admin is supportive of students, teachers and the community. Academics are on the rise as we prepare for common core.

This is my 2nd child to attend freedom high, and I have been very satisfied with their progress. We moved to this area 13 years ago and one of the reasons was the schools. I am happy we chose this area!!

I have taught here for 11 years and wouldn't want to be anywhere else. We have an amazing staff that puts kids first: and the kids--awesome. Caring, compassionate, spirited are just a few of the words that describe our school. We're always working hard to improve, and everyone's involved in the process. I love this place!

Speaking both as a parent and teacher, I feel that Freedom has the most to offer students as they move from high school to college and/or career. The staff (administration, certificated and classified) all have the best interest of the student in mind. The students are great and work hard. Freedom is a great school to be at!

The staff works very hard, individually and collectively, on the behalf of their students. When students show difficulty in comprehension of a subject/concept, the staff collaborates in ways of improving/diversifying dissemination of information to meet the needs of those students.

My student feels valued as a student, challenged as a student and comes to school feeling safe and confident all staff are working on her behalf. She has excelled and is prepared for the next level of education.

Freedom is a school of pride. Students are proud to be from this school. It is always excelling in the education and safety of the students, so that together everyone achieves more. It is community minded. I had 2 of my children graduate from Freedom H.S. and they both have nothing but praise for this school and the excellent education they got here. I have worked here for over 12 years and I think there is no better school in the district or in the state of California.


Posted September 17, 2009

Why do you love Freedom High School? Freedom has a caring and compassionate staff that focuses on students. Freedom challenges students, but provides many opportunities and interventions for students to succeed. Pride and enthusiasm resonate from students, staff, and the community in reference to Freedom.

My kids have gone to Freedom for two years now. I am impressed with the staff and I have always felt they have cared for the kids. My kids are not angels and I feel the VP have been fair and unbiased in their consquences. I feel my kids have become better students attending freedom.

I attended Freedom for all 4 years of high school. And I absolutly loved it. Every one of my teachers were great and gave the extra help when I needed it. There are a lot of clubs and sports, just not alot of people take advantage of joining them. I recomment getting involved in the clubs and leadership and sports there. It makes the whole experience a lot more enjoyable. I have noticed that now that I have graduated though, that the school is facing more and more problems with gang violence. Which is sad, but they are trying their best to deal with it.

Wow. I totally disagree with some of these comments. We recently moved here from Antioch and my children attend Freedom and they love Freedom. The teachers the sports programs the principal assigned to them called them directly and helped put them on the right path. We have had nothing but great postive experience with Freedom High I feel the staff and kids really care about their school.

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.
