The primary problem with North Fremont, as evidenced by many of these reviews, is its blindness to its own flaws. On numerous occasions as a student, I offered constructive, reasonable criticism of various elements of the school environment, and every time I was treated as if I were a spoiled brat who didn't realize what a "gem" of a school I was lucky enough to be attending. The main problem, in my opinion, is that the administration's assumption that most kids are naturally "bad". While I was there, for example, only three minutes were allowed between each class because, according to the assistant principal, if students had 5 minutes to get between classes, they would use the time to get in trouble. Thus, a trip to the bathroom or your locker without careful planning and speed would result in tardiness. Overall, the school is fine. To be a "gem" of a school, though, I believe the school must change its focus from "keeping kids in line" to encouraging real and varied intellectual pursuits. This would not take additional funds or teachers, simply a more trusting environment where students were not simply divided into the "good kids" and the "potential troublemakers".

And to add a argument to what Mrs. Shelley Baum said; Contrary to your beliefs, the teachers are highly motivated and qualified. If I remember who you are correctly, you served as a substitute and treated the students hatefully. This is hands down one of the best schools in Idaho. You got into it, and often, you come out with a greater respect for just about anyone around. To the argument that this is 'not a good school'. The teachers are only 'unfair' to those who have a crappy attitude and are generally rude to everyone. The facilities are excellent, but could use a bit of strengthening (Basketballssprinklerpipe bad combination). Finally, the extracurricular activities and assemblies are what is to be desired at a small, rural school. No place is better, many are worse, North Fremont shines above the rest.

I graduated from North Fremont last year, and feel qualified to warn you that this is not a good school. Not only are most of the teachers and administration far below average, they are extremely unfair. To be sure, there are some good teachers, and the new principal is trying his best to make the school better. Besides bad leadership, the school has miserable facilities. The building is new, but already extremely dirty and depressing. The extracurricular activities/assemblies, etc. are a joke. Basically, this school is ok, but a rather depressing place from which to graduate

In response to the revious comment, I am pleased to be listed in the 'great' teachers category. I wanted to address the comment about having more classes at North Fremont. We would love to offer more classes at North Fremont. However, due to limited spending on education in Idaho--and in all of America, if you want to go that far--more classes are going to be difficult to implement. There aren't enough teachers or times to teach the variety of classes that larger schools are able to teach.

Some of the teachers are incredible, (Hamilton,atchley,lopez,sam clark) but others some of the theachers are below par. the immaturity of the kids and the inability of some teachers to control it is the worst. north fremont needs to tuffen up their punishments and offer more classes.
