Fremont Middle School is nothing short of amazing. From the Principal who clearly cares about the students, to the team approach, we have been nothing but thrilled with this experience. Our 6th grader has complicated medical needs, and we were very weary of middle school in general, but it has been amazing to watch them deal with these issues so effectively.

My school has an amazing 8th grade science teacher. No names, but he's famous for his unforgettable witticisms and inventive bubble jar for "ums" and other grammatical slurs that impede one's proper speech.

Fremont middle school is I got to say the best school I ever went to. Very rarly will you get a real bad bully or a kid who is dum enough to do drugs. The teachers provide asstonishing education. The part of Fremopnt that no other school I have been to had was the friendlyness of the teachers. I feel that when students are comfortable enough to interact with the teacher then they can undrtstand the content better because they are not afraid to talk to the teacher. Right now I am going to a very hard high school and even though I am smart, I am not getting great grades because I am afraid to talk to the teachers. The school is also very safe and clean. I hope that if you our looking for a smart, safe, friendly, and Clean Middle School, then Fremont Middle School is your best choice.

I cannot say enough about how great an experience my daughter had at Fremont!! Although she was only here for 8th grade, she will miss the school, teachers, administrators and friends very much. Thank you for being so kind, caring, helpful and friendly to us. I really appreciate that Fremont forms great, well-adjusted people - not just academic achievers. Because all of you at Fremont take this approach, I truly feel my child will be more successful in everything she approaches. I hope this she finds this devoted attitude at every school she attends...if not, then she will always remember just how great a school can be - like Fremont! Thank you very much.

Children of Fremont District 79 are given a top quality education in every way. The school runs a balanced budget every year. Teachers and Staff are dedicated and are some of the best you will find anywhere. When the Fremont students graduate and move on to their respective High School (there are multiple) we are pleased to find the Children are beyond prepared and do extremely well compared to other Children from neighboring middle schools. Parents are extremely involved in the schools of Fremont and that helps with the culture and educational experience for all. Fremont models what I believe all schools should strive for in these challenging times including economic concerns, political and governmental restraints on schools, state financial restraints, real estate tax district residents concerns and growth within the District. Despite all of these challenges, Fremont has overcome them and is able to manage through them in a way to yet still provide an education to its students that is best in class, and still be held in the highest regard by the residents of the District.

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.

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.
