I was new to Fremont and was enrolled to Fremont Senior High. My first friends were my teachers. They were extremely nice and cared for me as a student. Met a lot of great people there who after 5 years continue being my close friends. The lunch was absolutely the worst thing I've ever had, and also lunch time was quick. Hated having to show my planner while walking through the halls because sort of felt as though the upper staff felt like I was doing wrong? Pep rally's were the worst. They were aimed more towards the outgoing type of students. Took great classes and whenever I needed help the teachers would lend a hand. There were plenty of fights that broke out throughout my high school career and those were the highlights of school. The lockers were very old and never opened for me, my buddy always had to open mine. Overall, nice school, had some flaws but what doesn't?
Fremont High School had two very important teachers last school year that not only taught students not only about their subjects, but also taught life lessons as well, these were two of the most amazing teachers I've ever had the pleasure of knowing, and having. Unfortunately, these two teachers left at the end of the last school year. Without them, Fremont High School is left with nothing. The school is more focused on sports than anything. Which is ironic since we only succeed in one sport - boys cross country. The teachers who also coach sports favor their athletes more than the other students, so these students are hurtfully left behind. Many of the teachers also favor students who are popular, have money, or have a prominent last name. This goes for all the Fremont Public Schools. Fremont High School is also does a very poor job in preparing students for the real world. The school is very snobby, and of course the students who have money have the teachers and administration under their thumb, they drink, never do their own homework, party till the sun comes up, and yet they are all chosen to join National Honor Society, while the good kids finish last. I can't wait to leave.
I would have to say that overall Fremont High School was pretty poor in the class selection. I am a sophmore at UNL and the chemistry class I am in was said to go over everything we learned in high school for the first two weeks. By the second week I was receiving new information that I had never learned before. A friend of mine is in that class and said that his high school offered chemistry classes from Freshmen to Seniors in high school! Another thing that I have noticed is the lack of college credit classes at the school. The school sets students up to enter the workforce after getting their diploma for the most part. Sports were VERY political at this school too. No matter what the skill level was of the player the deciding factor in play time was mommy and daddy's name and how much the player sucked up to the coaches. I did enjoy my time as a student here but that was because of the friends and the fun teachers. I feel that FHS has to do something about the class selection immediately. I mean they received a 3 out of 10 stars for a reason right? EXACTLY!
The high school is a good school for anyone wanting to enter a vocational school or the work place directly after graduation. The school however, is primitive when preparing students for a 4 year institution. The lack of advanced classes hampers students wishing to get a jump start on college credit. The archaic thinking of the administration needs to be changed.
I would say that Fremont Public School, especially the high school are a joke!!! They claim to believe in offering the best education possible, and yet the ones who get the most help and are put first are the ones the 'name?' This school does not care about the underdog and never will. The smartest thing I ever did was graduate at first quarter. I would never reccomend Fremont Public Schools to anyone!
I attended this school, and it was a great school. I picked the classes and the teachers I wanted, and every one was great. There are some teachers that aren't the best, but it is easy to peak the elite out of the crowd.
I am a graduate of this school. Some of the teachers are good, but they are hampered by an inept and rigid administration. Many of the others seem to be filling space. There is little emphasis on academic advancement or achievement. I feel my education began when I entered college. This school is best to avoid, as are all schools in the Fremont system.
You have one of the finest teachers and coaches I have ever had the pleasure to know, Mark Williams. Fremont High School is indeed lucky to have this young man back in Fremont again, and it was Blair High School's loss when he left. Mark Williams is one of the most honorable and ethical men I've ever met. B.Vopnford,Omaha,NE
I think that every school has its strong and weak points, but if a student works hard and takes upper level courses it more than prepares you for college. If a student takes part in some of the many extracurricular activities provided it makes them well-rounded and prepared for the real world. I personally am very proud to say that I graduated from this high school and I still have great relationships with many members of its staff.
