Freedom high school is a great school! I made so many excellent relationships with the staff and other students. You can really go to the staff with any concerns at all pertaining to anything you’ve got going on personally or academically. There’s plenty of extracurricular activities to get involved with the hard part was choosing which ones! I definitely had a joy being apart of the paws club for animals and the environmental science club. I also enjoyed being apart of varsity tennis and track/field teams. One of things I love about freedom high school was its dedication to the students and there’s always room for improvement so instead of changing anything about my school the only thing I would recommend is touching up in each area to excel past other schools being noticed more for excellence.

Freedom High School provided an informative and fairly close environment between teachers and students as well as students and students. The teachers, for the most part, are very in tune with their subjects and teach them energetically and with passion. However, the school also has logistic issues, I believe. The counselors have trouble connecting with students I have found, and their main purpose is skewed as they are more focused on rearranging classes than connecting and helping students. The campus itself is fairly nice, but the fact that the gates surrounding it all remain locked seem to provide an unacceptable safety hazard in the case of an incident. Also, the split lunches implemented made it a struggle for students to get help from teachers, clubs and other activities to meet, and for students to meet with their friends in their downtime.
Freedom High School had brought to me bittersweet emotions throughout my past, almost, four years of attending there. I have seen the school go through major changes since my freshman year. During my freshman year, the school had such a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere that I had enjoyed, which had also continued onto my sophomore year. My junior year was when the high school began to change because of all the new incoming administrators to the school. Currently, I would rate my senior year as terrible, the rules that the new admin had developed had not only ruined the school atmosphere to be depressing and turned class of 2018 to be cold towards one another, but they had purposefully treated the campus like a prison, where all the gates were locked, encasing us within the school, like animals in a cage. Thankfully, I was able to meet amazing and significant people in my life and overall, I would say that the school had provided decent academics and influential supervisors.
