I am Devin Williams from 6A Art Class. Drew Freeman Middle School is a pretty good academic School. What I like about Drew Freeman Middle School is their Organization and they have a good Staff that cares for the Students. They also work harder with the students that need more help in each class by After school Tutoring. But at the same time I don't like the way we have to Tuck in our shirts, walk in a Single file line going to lunch and back, and I also don't like that we can't express ourselves throughout our clothing and Jewelry.

Terrencia Davis Mod 1|2 8 Drew Freeman Middle School is a great school. The students are full of potential, but it can only be unlocked by teachers willing to go through the ups and downs. The teachers are elated and actually care about the students. You can see it on thier faces when something as simple as a correct inference from a piece of deep text is correctly made. There is so much more to these kids than meets the eye. You just need teachers who are willing to go on the rollercoaster ride. Ones who arent weak. The students are FULL of potential.

Daijah Moore 7th grade Mr. Knox Mod 8/9 When I first came to this school, I thought it was going to be a horrible year. After all its not bad. People who have a bad perpective about DFMS need to change it to a better perpective, because what goes on outside of the school doesn't involve what goes on inside the school. Us students and teachers work hard for what we do,and I'm sure you do too. I've changed my perpective about this school ,why cant you ?

Jefferson Sudario 7th Mr.Know HW 1/2 Drew Freeman Middle School is an excellent school. The reasons this school is excellent is because the students are very organize, kind, productive, and hard working. But there are too many people who are badmouthing this school because of one student 's attitude or they have not gone to the school at all or rate this school because someone have told them its a bad school.

This school needs a lot of assistance in professionalism and customer service skills. Staff and teachers are not concerned about about making this a "Great School". Staff and Instructors do not respond to phone calls or emails, unless you physically go to the school. You better pray they are available. This is the one disfunctional school that is in need of LEADERS. If the state was to close this location or any of the middle schools, I would not be surprised. Parents stay away, you would be better off home schooling if this is your neighboring school.

I went to this school last year and personally I feel it could be a lot better some teachers should pay more attention to their students grades than pass them just so they don't have to see them next year. Plus why are some teachers allowing these things to go on, girls fight in the bathroom same for boy people doing lude acts in the hallway like kissing in front of peers sexing in the bathroom this school needs to step it up I'm glad I don't go there anymore.

This is a school with tons of potential but functions at the lowest possible denominator. The parent involvement in regular and ongoing school activities is non-existent. To be a success this school needs a complete administrative overhaul from top to bottom.

I just graduated from drew. I don't reccommend you take your child to drew freeman. the kids have gotten worse. Some of the teachers can't even teach well. This is my own experince I liked very few things at Drew and I suggest you don't send your child here.

I was a student the 05-06 and 06-07 year Honor Student. The school is very nice they have great teachers. I was on the Morgan 7th grade team and the Banneker 8th grade team. The Banneker team was like a big family. At graduation the teacher and the student cried because we had got so attached. After I graduted from sixth grade I really didn't want to go to Drew since I heard all of the crazy rumors that were totally lies.But when I got there I didn't want to leave. So I would recommend parent and students don't be afraid to send/go to Drew because it is really nice and fun(for the students). Mr.Taylor(Algebra) is a good fun teacher. Mr.Long(U.S History) makes class interesting. Ms.Hall(Language Arts) a very nice lady that will teach you every word in the dictonary. Ms.Crawford(Science)will teach you everything about science.Drew Freeman is coming out.

I've been at Drew-Freeman for a few years teaching and it's amazing to see some of the comments posted by parents. Teachers can only do so much. We are more of a baby-sitting service for parents than an educational institution. We need parents to do their part and together, we would be able to accomplish a lot more.

My daughter was a three quater honor roll student at this school for the 06*07 school year.I believe that their is not one school that will not have a few problems. we have to remember that these are children and not adults. they are learning how to maintain as young adults.I only have an issue with staff wearing clothing that is toooo tight! what happened to professional dress attire? This school may not be number one but I have been pleased with all of her teachers. we as parents have to work together and work with the staff.This is a good school.

My child s Drew Freeman experience has been bitter-sweet. She has been blessed with a few gifted, dedicated, knowledgeable teachers & mentors and cursed with a couple of teachers who seem only interested in disciplining an entire class for the actions of a few students. My opinion is that the principal is effective in getting her point across. She is very passionlate about her students,and she can become a chatterbox when trying to exptess this. The school offers a wealth of resources that encourage academic and personal growth, but participation in quality extra-curricular activities is limited. Would I suggest Drew Freeman? -Probably not. I do think most of the staff tries to maximize the learning experience, given what they have to work with. The level of parent involvement is moderate.

The Quality of the academic programs is what I believe to be poor. My son is in all honors courses yet the work he brings home is not challenging. I will say that the art program and instructor are superb. A vast majority of the parents are not concerned and when you try to be a concerned parent, the faculty becomes very defensive. When calling the main office, the secretaries are very rude. I am overall dissatisfied with the quality of this school.

Drew-Freeman is a good school. There are some problems there but the aministration works hard to improve them. The teachers work very hard to keep us, yes us (im a student) intact. And its not the teachers fault that the students are not interested or are not behaved.

I am a proud parent of four that attended Drew-Freeman Middle School. I think the teachers are doing an excellent job, it's the parents who has to play a role as well. The children only act out or become rude and disrespectful if the parent allows it. If that parent pop up at the school every once in a while without your child noticing you, you will amazed to find out what's going on. It takes a village to raise a child and as a parent you have to constantly stay involved. I help out if I can, I pop up in the school, I keep in contact with the teachers, and I have never had a problem with the principal or the vice-principals because they have always done their job.

I am not satisfied at all with DrewFreeman. The staff has no control over the students and they tend to brush off trouble that ocurrs on a daily basis. I USED to think DrewFreeman had an unjust bad reputation until my child started going there. They need to get a new staff that is not afraid to handle disruptive students. I know parents play a role in this also but when violence happens constantly on school grounds, there's problem. I would not recommend DrewFreeman to anyone until they straighten up their act.

i want to know why parents are always talking bad about teachers at drewfreeman. teachers are not at all at fault. they are hard working. i dont not know why parents think drewfreeman is a bad school. i am a recent graduate of this school and personally, i feel that i was provided with a great education. the school is not as structured as it should be, but it is still a great learning place. Mrs. Edwards, the principal, was a remarkable principal, as were the vice principals. they made sure all order was kept throughtout the school. parents complain about the order of the school and about teachers not keeping in touch with parents, but not once did i see a parent trying to help out at the school or helping keep order and not once have i seen a parent trying to keep in touch with teachers either. overall, drewfreeman is not at all what its is thought to be.

My child attends Drew Freeman Middle school and I am not at all impressed by this school it has many discipline problems that seem to go unnotice by administration and the school principal does not respond to phone calls. Also the Math Teacher especially one math teacher does not provide good feedback when asking what can you do to help your student to progress in math.

Drew Freeman could be a major assest to the community. However, it could use more organization and structure. I have seen first hand, what I would consider disappointing circumstances. Based on my experience with the staff at Drew Freeman and the experience I have witness I could not honestly encourage someone to send their child to this institution.

The Drew-Freeman experience is far better than the rumors that I had heard about. But it has the same problem that every school in PG county has not enough money(i.e. class sizes, notenough schools to go around) so they really get to the job of teaching.
