Fannie Lou Hamer Freedom High School is what I would call The Bronx's hidden treasure. It is a community school, housed with individuals that truly care about their students, their families and community. From the janitor to security, the teachers, staff and the Principal... I have never encountered a greater bunch. You walk into the school and immediately feel the warmth coming from all directions. Greeted always with a smile and warm embrace. Everyone knows every child, and they make it a point to get to know their parents and meet our concerns. They focus greatly on finding out their students interests and match them and their interests with programs and internship to prepare them for life after high school. Programs and internships in education and journalism, business, politics and more. My son has learned and grown so much in the years he has attended Fannie Lou Hamer.

This school is amazing because it offers variety of opportunities for students. They make sure you’re apart of real world learning activities. The school itself is one big community - we have a great student government body. Excellent sports team! The staffs are all respectful and the students feel safe at all times.
Very open and diverse school, caring teachers. Great academics. School Activities are extremely helpful and open possible opportunity doors towards the future. The school safety is pretty good can't complain. College readiness classes are very on point.
