James E Freer is a warm, caring school with lots of after school programs and opportunities for your child to connect and take ownership of "his school". Kids at Freer get excited about their school and the events that take place there! The student -teacher ratio keeps class sizes small enough for teachers to build a community within the classroom and connect with each child per any special needs. Freer fosters a love for community and education and is a great place for your child to be introduced to learning!

Freer is a very family oriented school. Parent involvement is greatly encouraged. As a parent, you can be as involved in your child's education as you want to be. Teachers and staff are accessible. By the end of her Kg year she was reading at almost a second grade level. My daughter is in first grade, both her Kg and current teacher were/are willing to discuss any questions or concern even if it's not parent teacher conferrence time. I volunteer on a weekly basis in her classroom. There are many different reading levels. The teachers (Mrs J Marks) does an amazing job of accommodating all levels and abilities. My son will start Kg next year. He has speech issues and I am not at all concerned because I know he will get all the attention and help he needs.

I find that Freer is a wonderful school; we considered on moving, but we decided not to because of the wonderful teachers. My son is in the Second grade and is excelling every year with the help of his teachers; (Mrs. Greer) she is great for teaching the children how to read. I am in pure amazement on a weekly basis how much better my sons reading skills are.

Teachers do not have a good understanding of dealing ADHD and/or learning disabilities. Too much emphasis is put into medicating children instead of understanding the disabilities and making classroom/assignment accomodations. Constant parental intervention is recommended to ensure they are providing the services these children need...they will not offer these services freely...they have to be forced!

My child has Asperger's syndrome, ADD/ADHD and anxiety disorder. The school does not know alot about Autism Spectrum Disorders and how to handle it. Mrs. Wagner (K) is the best for this. The school does not understand all the needs of a special child with developmental disablities and a high IQ.
