Some of the teachers "bully" the students, including my daughter. Making her cry on several occasions. I have left numerous voice mails to the principle about this, with no return call. I stop in, she's not there. The principle should be ashamed of herself, for allowing the teachers to treat the students this way. This school doesn't "care" about their students, and are obviously in it for the money. Don't send your kids to this school!!!

Best middle school ever! My 12 year old daugther graduated from Liberty Elementary and while she absolutely love Liberty, she loves Freedom even more. As a parent, I feel content with how the school is run and the principals and teachers are absolutely the best in Cherokee County! They are caring and very supportive of their students. The standards are high and students are high achievers in all areas. Go Patriots!!!

Worst school ever! The principal and asst principals spend more time trying to enforce ridiculous rules to the point that the kids cannot express themselves. If they focused as much attention on students' education as they do on making sure the kids don't look the wrong way, it would be a better place.

I totally diasagree! Ms. hawley was the principal at Liberty while my son was there and of course she moved to Freedom! She is very strict and runs a tight ship! At this transitional age kids need that! My son is now a seventh grader at Freedom and after having one attend Teasley 6 years ago compared to Freedom now............we are VERY fortunate! Not only a awesone facility, but the opportunites our children are offered and the education my son is receiving is incredible! Thanks Freedom Faculty and Staff and Administration!

Having two children there, I was disappointed and have now put my kids in private school. When Dr. Manzella left it has been down hill ever since then. The teachers, staff, parents and students all are unhappy. We have lost many good teachers that have left the last two years. Students have had rules changed or put in place that are absurd. There is no confidentiality at this school. A very miserable place to be for many reasons.

FMS has been my home for the last 3 years. As an 8th grader moving to WHS next year i must say freedom has its ups and downs. The begging of the year was not the best. I got % days of OSS for some really kidish stuff that should have been less. The last couple of months at Freedom have been pretty fun thought. I became friends with the adminitration and it was a lot diffrent than the begging but over all Freedom is not half bad....

We left APS and started here last year for grade 6. My son sailed through his first year at Freedom and I am thrilled he has the opportunity to take grade 9 math in grade 7. Just happy there is a great group of teachers.

Freedom has so far been good to excellent for my diverse learning children. I have an honors student and a special needs student. Both have done well at the school. I think the Dr. Manzella was very supportive of the special needs population and understood our children's unusual learning requirements. Also, on the other end of the spectrum, the honors courses are rigorous and in line with our expectations on getting our oldest child into high school advanced learning programs and eventually to the college of his choice. I find that the people who complain about good schools like this are the same ones that do not put the responsibility for learning on their child and like to blame others for their child's lack of achievement.

New is not better. Our child has attended this school for 2 years and needless to say, our other children will NOT be attending. Quality of teachers varies drastically. Principal is already leaving after 2 years. Seems to be a lack of funds as there are not adequate AR tests or reading material. Our child did not have a Math Book until 2 or more months into the school year! Even though all AP classes were accomplished with high 80's to high 90's, we were still denied the priviledge of particular academics such as the level of Math or Spanish! These choices were not disclosed to parents in advance nor was the information given when requested. Please, get more involved in the subjects, homework, and academic choices.

Freedom has been a great satisfaction for me. Since my first kid went to FMS last year, I was apprehensive like other parents about transition from elementatry to middle school. However it has been a great expereince. my kid has been challenged in all the clasees. If she is doing better than others in a subject she is getting tougher tests to take. Teachers are always helpful. Also it has a variety of clubs and afterschool activities. I love it.
