I came to Freeman as a Junior and I felt welcomed by students and staff. The teachers really do what they can to help their students and Freeman makes sure to take care of its students as much as it can. Coming to Freeman was nice for me because it was less academically stressful and allowed me to be more involved in school activities. If I could change something, I would make it so the older students were given more freedoms and responsibilities. Also, I would include more options for lunches. Finally, I would institute some harder coursework for the students who need it.
There has been a few times where there would be a kid from a difficult background that would try to pick a fight but it doesn't happen very often and it doesn't become anything serious.
There are many options for people to get involved on campus but a lot of people either aren't brave enough to try or don't feel like they fit in with the people already in that group/program.
I have loved the people in this school for my whole life. They are understanding and they have become family to me. I wouldn't trade them for anything.
I mean you are going to have some issues with life crisises and students that struggle or don't care to be there so I would say that the teachers do the best they can to help everyone.
FFA, FBLA, Quiz Bowl, Speech/Drama/Theatre, Football, Volleyball, Basketball, Softball, Swimming, Track/Field, there are many additional clubs that my children did not participate in
I have had three children attend Freeman Public Schools and all three had a very positive experience. Not all of my children were A students, but the teachers went out of their way to help and support all of my children.
Teachers are very friendly and helpful to the students and are happy to meet with the students and their parents if they have questions or concerns. Most of the teachers are involved in a club or athletic team involving the students.
The staff is okay. They help when needed, but they sometimes get too involved.
We have a small school so our nurse only comes on Tuesdays, which seems like a day we never need her. But the small town feel makes us feel safe, but yes we have gone through lock down procedures and we know what to do if there's a tornado, or fire. This school is very safe.
Almost all of the teachers I would be able to go and have a conversation with if I was having a problem. If they put the wrong grade in for me, I would be able to go and discuss it with them. The teachers of Freeman, definitely deserve more than they get, they make school fun.
Some school lunches aren't the best, but freeman food isn't the worst out there. The part I don't like is there is no variety. It's the same stuff every week. However they do follow the rules by having a serving of vegetables, fruits, meats, grains, and dairy.
Mostly everything to freeman is a sport. However, the English teacher coaches our speech team, they have done really well in previous years. also, the science teacher sponsors the quiz bowl team. The speech team has their meets every Saturday, two years ago, they were state champions, but they don't usually get a lot of support from the school.
Though guidance is not the most "on the ball, go get 'em" set up, administration involvement as well as awareness of policies are both prominent. There is always an adult who knows what's going on available, and the office staff are generally interested and friendly. Bullying is absolutely not tolerated, and any student with a problem has immediate assistance available at all times, not just from teachers but from fellow students as well. The dress code, though not strictly adhered to at all times, is followed well enough to keep students looking clean and respectable.
The school is clean and inviting. Teachers and students are constantly within close proximity to one another, providing ample opportunities for tutoring and assistance. Students are well-rounded and energetic (usually). Administrators expect a good deal from a majority of the student body, which encourages students to follow through. Students who struggle academically (or behaviorally) are not overlooked due to a lack of available resources, they are taken care of by faculty. The one and only downfall is the lack of available peer variety. By that I mean, I attended kindergarten and my senior year with many of the same people, graduating with only 24 of which about 20 were around before 6th grade.
Though we are perhaps not always served the healthiest entrees, the food is cooked appropriately, vegetables and fruits are constantly available and we are encouraged toward them, our eating, serving, and cooking areas are clean and orderly, and the meals are usually quite large enough. Our menu varies nicely, though sometimes we are served too much processed food in an amount of time- ex. pork patties, country fried steak, and chicken patties in the same week.
Our school is very involved with athletic and fitness opportunities. This stems as much from our community- a community largely composed of hard working farmers and their children- as it does from the competitive drive it gives each student. A course of physical education is required for high school students to graduate, and all elementary and Jr. High kids are in classes as well. Our sports teams are highly supported by the whole school, with a fan base that includes not only class mates and parents, but also many older members of the community. Our teams are extremely talented, with multiple state titles and much more state competition experience. Our fans are (typically) respectful and devoted.
