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.
ive had three kids go to this school and all three of them have no good things to say about it i personally hate the etchers there and have done no good for my kids my kids hate it i hate it and having multiple meetings with teachers and principles they are all quite rude and have even sat in on some classes and they are well under par. not only that but fights are on the rise and there are multiple fights every day my kids tell me. i would not recommend this school to anyone. i know no parent who likes this school
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!
Teachers, counselors, administration, students all work together. Everyone supports one another and we have great team work.
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.
The students are caring and generous with each other. The teachers and staff are the most dedicated I have ever worked with.
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.
the campus climate, the collegiality, the collaboration between the staff, and the kids
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.
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.
This school is great, My teachers and fellow piers have inspired me to do well in life. The schools grades and test scores have risen. the school has a great leader Mr. Volta
I've gone to Freedom for 2 years and I'm going to gradutate next year. I've been to other schools arcoss the country and I recomend Freedom. The teachers want to see students sucseed and it's a wonderful invirment! If you speak to the teachers there they do everything in there power to help students.
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.
