This is an excellent school students are challenged to excel academically. There is adequate homework and the students are expected to respect their peers. The PTA is actively involved and engaged.

I went to this school as a child and remember it fondly. The teachers were creative and warm, the special programs memorable and engaging, and the principal an excellent leader. The school and its culture provided a solid early foundation for me to excel in school and life, and now I am happy in my career and doing very well. I know times change and schools may change as well, but this school has a tradition of excellence and a long history of nurturing both the heads and the hearts of its students.

My son just started at this school. I told his teacher he had gone to private schools prior to this. I was worried about how he would adjust. She called me three days later to let me know he was doing great. I appreciated it very much. he also mentioned how much he liked his teacher Mrs. Silverstone. Sue is the office secrtary who has gone above to make us feel welcome.

My child has attended Fremont K - 2nd grade and we've been very happy with the education she has received. She has had excellent teachers in every grade, including specials teachers. She has special needs and has received needed services including supportive teachers and administration. Heading into severe budget cuts next year, we feel confident that our child will continue to receive a quality education.

I am so displeased with Fremont. I love my son's teacher, however, the system is failing him. My son has Autism, and because Fremont enrolled a maximum number of students into it's program this year, he is not being integrated into a typical classroom as he should be. This child has tremendous potential which is being swept under the rug because of the student teacher ratio. He is a 5th grader in an ASD room full of kindergartener's. I am NOT happy, and I am lining up my ducks!

It is funny so many positive reviews however I live on a street with over 40 other children of elementary and middle schools age and only one...one...attends or has ever attended this school as their home school. All other parents open enroll their children in other schools...why? because the academic standard at this school is very, very low. Our child and her class are easily a grade or more behind other surrounding schools. Academically, the school is sub-par -" no child left behind" so they bring everyone in class down to the level of the slowest learners. If you have mediocre or low expectations for your child's education then you will love it. The children sure have fun with 2 recesses, infrequent homework and an easy schedule - it's all fun, fun fun !

Fremont is wonderful school with teacher's who reallly care about each child as an individual. I have two children who attend Fremont. It has been a blessing to our family to feel so much a part of the community. I like the extra things they do outside of school hours to make the children grow in other ways socially as well as academically.

My daughter absolutely loved going to this school. The staff was caring and kind, and I truly felt a sense of belonging as a parent. Many opportunities to volunteer and be a part of daughter's education.

Fremont is a wonderful school, and in fact, feels very much like a community. I have had two children attend Fremont and have found every grade level to be staffed with competent, caring teachers.

Public education at it's worst. The third grade year pushed us toward private education. Peer to peer bullying a problem not discouraged by staff.Perhaps if some older negative teachers were let go things could improve.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Colorado used the Transitional Colorado Assessment Program (TCAP) to test students' skills in reading, writing and mathematics in grades 3 through 10, and in science in grades 5, 8 and 10. The TCAP is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Colorado. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the test. The TCAP replaced the CSAP as Colorado's state assessment program effective for the 2011-2012 school year.

What is the GreatSchools Rating?

The GreatSchools rating is a simple tool for parents to compare schools based on test scores, student academic growth, and college readiness. It compares schools across the state, where the highest rated schools in the state are designated as “Above Average” and the lowest “Below Average.” It is designed to be a starting point to help parents make baseline comparisons. We always advise parents to visit the school and consider other information on school performance and programs, as well as consider their child's and family's needs as part of the school selection process.
