What I liked about Freedom High School is the wide variety of classes to choose from. I have been in PLTW for two years and it has really been eye opening. It makes me want to achieve my goals and go in to the medical field right away. Another thing I liked about Freedom was the chance to build relationships with my teachers, everyone was so kind and willing to help, but the best is Pierre, the security officer who is always smiling and looking to make the days of everyone else truly the best!

My school may be considered better than others, but in all honesty the lack of concern for racial injustice and bigotry in this school speaks volumes. My experience wasn’t phenomenal, but with the help of some teachers, it wasn’t catastrophic either. Just like other schools, this school has sanitary problems and it is not very supportive of their students. Yes, they may encourage us to join clubs, play sports, and “get involved,” but the guidance typically ends there when concerning the lead administrators.
Freedom High School is a truly great learning environment. While there is room for improvement, I believe that the school administrators have done an excellent job of improving the school in recent years. The school has refocused resources back into the classroom, with a newfound emphasis on the school's S.T.E.M. program. My personal interests lie in the social sciences, and I've got to admit, the business department at our school has excellent facilities, resources, and the best classrooms in the area. Most members of the faculty are sincere and personable people, ones that are willing to help you in any way they can.

Given the location, culture, and community that Freedom High School creates and belongs to, Freedom will continue to be a leading institution for the foreseeable future. The environment at Freedom resembles one that is both friendly, yet opportunistic, and is the perfect space to allow students to become whatever it is they want to be.
