I'm a 2008 graduate and I can honestly say FHS was a great school to attend. I enrolled into Freeport my Sophomore year after attending private school. My teachers were great role models and influenced me tremendously. Two of my siblings attend FHS now, and they are both enrolled in AP and honors courses. While there are sometimes fights, etc if students truly apply themselves (like in most situations) they'll get the most out of their education. Freeport High School and Freeport district schools for that matter may get a bad rap, but honestly it's one of the best kept secrets on the Island.

One of the best schools in the Long Island area. Excelent teachers and staff. Programs that help students be the best they can be. Excelente sports programs that not only changes students on there athletics capasity but care for students academic grades aswell. The school has high standers and work as a team with the parents so our children achive the best score posible.

As of today, I don t have a review as my child will attend as a freshman in September 2012. I do have my concerns. Coming from the outer boroughs, Brooklyn, NY to be exact, I first believed, perhaps naively, that Nassau County schools were superior to city schools. After reading reviews, listening to students, teachers, and parents, I ve deduced that Freeport is certainly not the best but it s not the worst either. It can be better! As my child begin their high school academic career at Freeport HS, I will definitely be involved and therefore check out the school culture and bring back my thoughts on this arena; Especially for other parents like me, who love the beautiful homes in Freeport but are put off by what they ve heard or here about the school and consequently reluctant to buy. So I m providing 3 stars from what I ve heard. As I have my own experience, my stars will commensurate to reflect my experiences.

Freeport High School, is a very good learning institution. As much as there are students that don't care, there are students that do care. Teachers are willing to work with students that are willing to work. There are always students that graduate and attend Ivy League schools. Additionally, the sports teams are good, improving and sometimes the best. It is shown with the football team as well as the cheerleading team. When it comes to bullying, it does happen but not as much, or viciously as in other schools. Most people that do get bullied do nothing to prevent it. There is a very diverse panel of students, and personalities. A famous footballer, and a rockstar have gone to Freeport High School.

Do not enroll your children to this school. Gangs, bullies, fights,people stealing phones for profit,teachers cursing are some of the many things that your students will encounter.

Harrasement: I must say that I read the two reviews below and this is not the case in this school. In order for your child to be suspended she has to engage in some sort of activity that warrented the suspension. This school has a NO toleance for this sort of activity, so this is totally unbelievable. There are many school that have bullies and unwanted behavior from students, this is not what you base a school rating on. You are bitter and should leave Freeport if you deont like it because it is a good school. As for the after school programs, many school wish they had the spots and activities that we have to offer in our school. Two thumbs up to our new principal and all of his hard work. Congrads to our Cheerleading team, LICCA Champions 2009 and 2010!!!

A school that has so many after school programs does not mean that the school is good. That means that our homeower tax will go up. To the students school is all about friends, not learning or go to school to take care of business. As a parent from Freeport, I can say that administration should consider in restructuring the education on this town.

My daughter was being picked on by another student and my daughter got tired of it and got into a heated argument with the student in the class room. Teacher threw both students out. 2 days later the other child was with 2 other students and my daughter felt threatened and went to find help in the Deans office - Long story short. My daughter was suspended as well as the other student. This is what administration is teaching our kids when they go to them for help.

My child was harrased several time. I will not get into that. The school does somehow manage to pull in some good teachers but the school overall does not know how to manage kids. You can say great things about the school and some teachers but look at how the testing compares to the state average. Freeport fails in pretty much every subject.

Freeport High School is a great learning instituituion. I have never been any where else where they prep you so well . If any parent has anything bad to say about Freeport its probably their kid who is having trouble or is blaming Freeport for their kids failure in their life. I have never seen a school with so many teachers that are willing to stay after school for about two or three hours after coming in before the students have arrived and some are teaching night school until eight o'clock at night.(Some get paid and some do not get paid but right off the back you can see the level of dedication in these teachers.)There have been several fights in FHS but I have surronded myself with wonderful friends who want to go somewhere and get an Adv. R.diploma. Its not about where you live, its how you live.

I have no problem with FPHS. Any institution is a good as the parent involvement- the teachers do their part- and the parents MUST do their's- accountability on both ends = student success!!

I found the teachers to be very knowledge and willing to help those students that were wanted to go the extra step to succeed. The principal and vice principal were very hands on administrators and were accessible to the parents.

I m a current student at Freeport High School. FHS is very strong in its musical department and athletic department. Also, the school is strong on diversity and there are new students coming into the school everyday. Many students disrupt classes and act very immature. Many students are failing in their academics and every year the number of students failing increases. In conclusion, I think that out of a possible 10, FHS deserves a 5-6 because the academic level is not up to par neither is the seriousness and determination of both the parents and students.

FHS has a great NJROTC program which has helped and improved my discipline and responsibility level. I'm very thankful for the chance to be involved in this program. The teachers at FHS are understanding & I've had the luck to have very cool teachers who try to help me in everything they can.

My kids love freeport schools. My oldest is graduating from college (Freeport Class of 2001) my next son is graduating from Freeport HS, my daughter is going to the high school is Sept. None of my kids have ever been afraid. It is a shame that our schools are portrayed as roving gangs thru the hallways. Is it perfect..no..do we have problems..yes...but it is more true to life than a lot of other districts. We have great programs and could use more parental support. Our district is very involved in music and the arts. We have great sports programs. The biggest problem we have is PR..we are constantly in the paper for what we don't do..not for what we do.

This school is an absolute dump. try going by at dismissal time, when there are numerous police cars, gangs and security all over the place. Its like INNER CITY comes to long island. forget about sending your kids there. Horror Show.

The quality of academic programs are great! They are consistantly strong in music, arts and especially sports. Great football and basketball teams. Parent involvement could use improvement.

I belive that FHS is probably one of the best schools on the island. FHS has diversity like no other school which is one of its strongest selling points. I attended FHS from 1994-1998 and am now in my 3rd year of veterinary medical school and will be a veterinarian in just a little over a year. My best friend who also graduated from FHS will be graduating medical school in 2007. FHS offers many more AP courses than many of the private schools on the island. In addition to the superiority of the teaching staff, sports are also great! I was on the lacrosse team, soccer team, cross country and track teams and all the coaches were just excellent. If you aren't into sports there are a variety of extracurricular activities that will meet just about anyones interests. Overall FHS offers everything for a well rounded high school education!

All schools have both its good and its bad. Hence, there are no 'perfect' schools in human society. Although Freeport High School has had its challenges one can not ignore the fabulous teachers and extra curr. activities at the H.S. The Select Chorale Choir at FHS is one of the top choirs in Long Island today. May I suggest we speak not only of the negative but the positive aspects as well.
