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.

My experience at Freedom High School has inspired me to become an educator. As an individual, I consider myself to be creative minded and not academic. However, I believe I have great potential and with the appropriate resources I can excel in academia. During my first year of college I realized the goal of my high school was not necessarily to prepare students for college, but more-so on getting students to graduate. I wish the idea of attending college was introduced to me earlier in my high school career so I took the testing and applications more seriously.
I've went to Freedom for all four years, and have seen many changes throughout the years. The staff at the Freedom are all very helpful and kind to the students. On the other hand, some teachers don't do a good job on preparing their students for college. The students at the school do a great job of supporting and appreciating the other students, along with teachers. Some things that I would like to see change is the cleanliness of the school, there is a cockroach problem at the school, and there are possums found at the campus as well. Overall, I believe that the campus has its pros, yet also needs improvements.
