I loved going to Freedom High School. First off, they have some amazing teachers that are always there if you need anything. They are all there to help you and really do want to see you succeed. The school is very diverse and has clubs and organizations dedicated to specific races and enthic groups, as well as clubs for academics and sports! The parents are really good at buying class shirts and donating time and different things to the school. As far as volunteering for dances goes, I know I never wanted my parents there so usually administration would chaperon instead which was fine by me! They also have security guards all around campus to make sure everyone is safe. They all are really nice as like to have conversations with the students. There isn't much I would change about Freedom High. The only real complaint I would have is how strict they are on wearing Id's but I know it's for a good reason so it's hard to complain. Overall, I had a wonderful High School experience.

Freedom High School is good on a social level; there are some fights but most students tend to get along. Academically, this school is not great. The average ACT score is 21 and the average SAT score is 1100; I had to receive tutoring outside of school in order to score higher than that. The staff there are extremely nice however, they are completely understaffed with almost 3000 students and only 350 faculty. Classroom are noisy, which makes it difficult to learn. Most teachers have absolutely no classroom control and allow students to do whatever they want, which also makes it difficult to learn. The administration are not concerned about the voice of the students; I had made many appointments and I did not get called in once. I had to walk into offices and refuse to leave until they talked to me about problems inside and outside the classroom.
Freedom High School has a lot of clubs you can get involved with and offers a wide variety of classes and sports to participate in as well. You can find almost any kind of person there, making it close to inevitable finding a crowd to fit in and belong in. There are numerous Advance Placement classes to fill your schedule with challenging curriculum and giving the students the opportunity to push themselves and grow academically. I have had some really great teachers while attending Freedom High, have always felt safe and have been involved in some really great clubs and activities. I feel well prepared for college and have loved being able to befriend students of all cultures and backgrounds.
The cleanliness and up keeping of the facilities could be improved on, as well as the quality of the food provided in the snack bars and cafeterias. Overall a very good school that offers a great learning environment for students desiring to excel and grow.
