I graduated in 2011. From my experience, Fremd was a decent school. With a variety of AP classes to choose from and a handful of clubs and activities for one's liking, many students continue to stay involved. The academics at Fremd are not really much different from the schools around (decent education), overall. The academic reputation of Fremd is slightly overrated. In all of the four years that I have attended this school, I have not once personally experienced any forms of bigger problems with any of the students. Fights at Fremd are not that common. if one did not fit with the bigger group of students who dressed and acted exactly the same, one would have felt very unwelcome, naturally. A big portion of this school is upper-middle class (tax money sure does contributes). Poorer students in the school may feel a bit un-welcomed by the social pressure to fit in.
Overall, a very good high school. Academics and athletics are above average. The facility itself needs to be updated a bit in order to remain competitive. The one problem I have is other people on this forum overstating a bit. Let's face it, it's not New Trier.
I didnt like the school at all. They made you ware Id's and forced you to take gym classes. The fact that you had to wake up at 7:30 and go to 8 classes was terrible. If you can stick it out and wait until you go to a different school/college things will get much better.
Mediocre teachers and underfunded advanced programs, it's probably more of a community issue but since we moved here, we've been disappointed with the school (2 children attended within the past 6 years).
It's a great school that incorporates community outreach programs ran by the students.
This is by far one of the greatest schools in the Chicagoland area. Challenging courses, teachers that really care about their students. I am very happy both my children attend Fremd High school. Palatine has excellent grade schools and high schools.
I love Fremd. I have been to many schools, and Fremd has by far been the best! The teachers and staff are awesome. I am so glad that graduated from Fremd!
This school was top notch. Not exactly the most diverse place in Chicagoland, but what it lacks in diversity, in makes up for in quality academics. Unfortunatly at the time I was making the best choices in life and did not make the best of my education at Fremd. Needless to say it did not take me long to shape up, finish JC and graduate UCSC. I do not think I this would have been possible had I not recieved an education at Fremd. I just wish I had not been so young and dumb, I never showed my teachers the respect they deserved.
Wonderful academic program, wide choice of AP classes, many extracurricular activities to choose from, great staff.
This is excellent school! Grades are the best in the state, theachers are very educated, school looks very clean, it has pool, football field, tennis cort, garage for auto class, huge parking lot for students and teachers and so many more...Students have very good music, sport and other activities. My kids are very happy there!
This school is an excellent public school. All the classes(especially honors) are very academically challenging and the teachers are interesting.
What a great school, all three of my children recieved a great education at Fremd. My kids where in sports and involve in other extracrricular activities. They all scored high on the ACTS. Teachers are the best!
