Great teachers, tough as nails but they have a very structured way of teaching. I wish this school was more traditional. For Valentine's Day the children were NOT allowed to bring in lollipops or any other sweet. Same thing goes for the children's birthdays. Why not let my child enjoy elementary school like we did! There are no school trips and the students get 5 minutes to eat a snack, and minimal time with recess. These are children....give them some leniency, after all they are 8 and 9 year olds.
Great teachers, but the principal is a politician. He will tell you what you want to hear. He will grant a request for you(teacher) only and only if you are in a position to help him and the school out. Nice facility but need more activities for the kids and the ones they have seem to be more for the K-1-2 grades. Not much for older kids, especially the assemblies.
We moved here in the US in 2006 and my son started Kindergarten in WFS. We were very anxious considering that he came from another country and is new to the school, the culture and the system. But we were so impressed with the way the staff and teachers facilitated the transition for my son. They were very supportive and helpful and made sure that my son was comfortable. And we are proud to say that my son is doing very well academically and socially. - Tony & Vanessa, parents
As our daughter gets ready to graduate 5th grade soon, we will always remember the kind caring ways of the teachers and staff. They go the extra mile to make sure that every child is educated well beyond expectations. This school in my opinion is the best elementary school in Freehold, Twp.
Our daughter started kindergarten this year. We were very impressed with the orientation. The kindergarten curriculum is top notch, the Principal, teachers and overall environment is better than we could have hoped for. We also have a 2 year old son and look forward to him attending the West Freehold School in the future as well.
