As a student athlete I am quite busy. Although, the teachers (at least the ones I've had) have been very understanding about late work or needing extra help on a lesson. The athletic program is good in my opinion, with a variety of sports ranging from wrestling to tennis and coaches who push you to be your best. That being said, the school does have more than the average amount of fights and False fire alarms. Although, freedom still remains a safe environment due to the watchful security and teachers.
Freedom High has the potential to be a great school although its potential alone should not be mistaken as excellence. This school's faculty and administration needs reshaping in the area of discrimination policies. Freedom has a vast share of awesome teachers and administrators but on the other hand, it also has its quantity of biased teachers and staff. This school needs restructuring in other areas as well...such as the areas of bullying, repeat offenders in tolerated fighting, school safety, and security. Another thing, my son (who is highly athletic and scholastic) was discriminated against by a few of Freedom's football coaches. I have NEVER been through so many drastic issues like I've experienced with this school's athletic department. The coaches were able to predict that another African American athlete will definitely be a true success and they had to put a stop to allowing him the opportunity towards scholarly achievement.
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!
