Great school, I graduated recently. There are some faculty that aren't that great, but that's with most schools. However, overall, each department has at least a handful of amazing teachers (especially the history and math departments). Administrators are also wonderful and incredibly supportive of their students -- many of them made my transition from high school to college easy. By far one of the most spirited and kindest student bodies I've seen in a Loudoun county high school.
We LOVE Freedom. The staff, facility and education is top quality. Our Daughter is in Honors Classes and getting A's because the staff cares about out kids. The new facility and equipment makes this school superior. Happy Kids....great grades...happy parents.
Fantastic principal who truly cares about the students and the school. He is involved in all aspects of running the school as well as connecting with the students and parents. He is a consistent presence in the halls and classrooms. Since he has been here the level of teaching and accountability has risen. He has done a great job changing the math department. We look forward to many years with him as the leader!
This school is horrid. The staff is unbearably rude and I'm not even going to mention the math department and their lack of knowledge for the subject it seems like. My first child went to this school and I am moving before I will send my next child there. no way!
My two children are faring well in college, thanks to the academic program of Loudoun County. They are each placed in upper level courses in both English and Math, even though one child did not place as extremely high as the other in SATs, they are each holding their own and doing great! We experienced Freedom High School from its formative years, and saw the natural negative human reactions to any changes that the principal made, but if you open your minds to it, the changes are based on founded reasons, and not to be taken personally against the principal. Teachers should offer extra credit in order to engage the students into studying the subject material, but please note that extra credit is often not offered in college classes. Suggestion for the Guidance Department to filter in topics of career choices on an every day basis, so these students may be more certain of their academic paths if pursuing college vs. technical paths.
Clean & new building but very poor academically. Not challenging at all. I feel that the kids are not being prepared effectively for the cut throat competitive world outside, that they have to excel in, in order to succeed.
