FHS is an incredible School. I have 3 children that attend this high school and they are all very involved. One of my children has learning disabilities and is treated fairly and given all the needed extras for him to progress. Although We are trulky missing Mrs. Adamson the ESE teacher the new one Mrs. Blair seems to be having a hard time keeping up but is getting the hang of things. We love Mr. D..the new vide Principal..yet once again we miss Mr. Morello. He is now Principal at Emerald coast Middle School. The sports program is exceptional as is all the extra curricular clubs and after school clubs. Freeport is a great small town school that has expanded on alot of the curriculum offered. The teachers and staff keep parents informed and involved in every aspect of the childs education. My son used to have all F's in Algebra , but one very unique and special teacher worked so well with him, last yr he received All A's in Algebra. I stand By FHS 100%. Most likely the bad complaints are from parents with unruly students.

Freeport High School has the worst communication with parents we have ever experienced. The school goes to the point of excluding parents when it comes to making decisions that effect our children's education. The school does not make the grade especially in the management area. The principal will tell you what she thinks you want to here. It does not matter if it is the truth or something way out of bounds. This school makes uninformed changes that cost both the tax payers and the students! I would rate this as the lowest school our children have attended. The only bright side is the teachers care about the students and their progress.

Freeport high is a fantastic school, with caring, capable, hard working faculty. It is a small rural school, but this does not mean our kids suffer! on the contrary, it provides our kids lower student/teacher ratios, and the opportunity to receive extra help where needed! To those parents and students who rate this school low on involvement, get involved yourself! Two of my kids graduated from fhs, and took dual enrollment classes, which they view as a blessing! One has graduated from a four year college, and the other will graduate in the spring. My third is in dual enrollement now! Freeport has an award winning band program, a variety of boys and girls sports programs, and good natured,supportive students. I recall a much loved, popular young man, confined to a wheelchair, who was voted homecoming king by his classmates not long ago! I'm proud of all of them!

I have two children that have gone and are going to Freeport High School. We came to Freeport from a very large school in Alabama. I love the smaller classrooms and that I seethe teachers around the town and they are supportive and caring. I have teachers call when they have a concern with my child. Kids don't get lost here and they receive a good education. We have watched lots of graduations and seen the amount of scholarships our children are getting. Very impressive.

As an FHS parent I found both good and bad. The good was that the kids are very accepting of one another. The teachers for the most part are good and care about the kids. The former principal Mr. Murphy did not deserve to be replaced for the most part he was great with the kids and under his leadership the school earned an A this past year. The guidance department seems to really care about the kids and keeps the parents involved. Now the bad, limited course selections because of it being a small rural school, school employees and some teachers definately favor certain kids. Even the kids know that if they play sports or are popular they are given favoritism. There is too much gossip and I don 't mean just from the students,it is a small town but school employees should rise above that.

I believe that the new principal for the 2008-2009 should not have replaced Mr. Murphy, the previous principal. Through Murphy's hard work and incentives that he gave the students, Freeport High became an 'A' School. How can you beat that?!?!? -Alumni

This school is in much need of an improvment in the fcat department and also the science teachers should not be coaches.

Very few class choices. Administrators seem uncaring.

Three of our sons have attended this high school. I was underwhelmed by the effort made to help our physically disabled student who was completely ignored when it came to activities or honors that he could have participated in. That said, if parents act as advocates for their students, there are many opportunities to succeed in a relatively small and rural school.

The level of parent envolvement at freeport high school is slim to none. The school is mostly about football. Most of the teachers favor people who are either a sports player or someone who is of higher class. The teachers pick and choose who they want to take it easy on. The new principal is good. He cares about what the students are doing, but yet only knows about half of the kids. The whole staff is not fully involved woth all of the students. They only talk and communicate with about half of the school.

I am a sophomore at FHS. The ratings given by the state tell very little about this school. FHS has the highest rate of dual enrollment students in it's district. The school was graded by its lowest precentile, the 8% of kids who do not pull their own weight. I am a gifted student, and these ratings are an injustice to the other students like me; 75% percent of my class made the honor roll last semester. Most of teh classes are like that. The teachers are excellent. The resources are incredible, as are the students. It's the 'D' that is the downfall: a bad front for a great school. It truly is one of the best high schools in the area: small, personal, with good students. It's wrong to judge this great school by the 8% of it's students who don't care.
