This is an AMAZING school. Academically this school is stellar but the staff also works to develop children socially and emotionally as well. There is an emphasis on community and character development and the atmosphere in the school is warm and supportive of all the students. All support services are in place for students who need intervention as well as a REAL gifted program that provides differentiation for advanced learners daily, not just for a couple of hours a week. Students have easy access to new technology and incorporate it into the classroom by doing things like podcasts and multimedia projects along with more traditional projects. There are weekly classes in art, music, technology and library as well as DAILY physical education. As a newer school, the facilities are great including a science lab. Students also have access to an outdoor learning environment - acres of land to explore as part of the academic curriculum, but also for active pursuits like cross-country skiing in the winter and biking during summer school. Band, choir, sports, clubs - Fremont has it all with amazing staff and administration. You can't find a better school in Lake County!

My two sons have been in this school since 3rd grade. One of them needs 504 plan because of his medical situation. The school staff (from the principle, nurse to my sons' teachers) are very helpful for special clean-up arrangement. They even installed hand free hand sanitizers in the classrooms where he'd go! The level of care from each of the staff is beyond our expectation and we have been so thankful to them and feel so lucky to be in this district. I have to mention the wonderful teacher Mrs. Bratta who were with our boys for two years straight. Because our son had many medical absences during the first year with her, she suggested to use Skype to make him connected with his classmates. The previous principle (Mrs. Dahn) and the computer staff Adam were very supportive and made this happen really quickly! Our current principle and teachers continue to make great effort taking care of my son. The school nurse Sharon is RN and has a big heart:) Our another son has been luckily in the enrichment class since the very beginning. We are so glad to see his great improvement academically. For our family, Fremont Intermediate School is the best school we have ever been with.

I have one child at the Intermediate school and one child at the Elementary school. I have been so happy with the quality of education my children are receiving. The teachers are outstanding, and the school provides excellent resources, including laptops for the classrooms, plus art, computer, and music class. The band program is exceptional. I would highly recommend Fremont Elementary School to other families.

My child has attended Fremont schools for three years and has excelled in all areas academically, socially and emotionally. The teachers are highly qualified and very caring. Parents are encouraged to be involved on all levels and many are even volunteering their time. This is a school that builds confidence and pushes for excellence!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 Illinois used the Illinois Standards Achievement Test (ISAT) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and in grades 4 and 7 in science. The ISAT is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Illinois. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.

In 2013 the Illinois State Board of Education raised the performance expectations for the ISAT in reading and math. These expectations have been adjusted to better align with the Common Core State Standards, a multi-state initiative that established year-by-year guidelines outlining the grade-specific skills and content students need to stay on the path to college and career readiness. The higher expectations of the new standards will result in a downward shift of where students rank in meeting or exceeding standards.
