I was very involved in Freeman during my time there. I participated in a lot of the performing arts extra-curriculars and volunteer clubs. I significantly enjoyed my time at Freeman. Although very trying at times, I know that it has very well push and prepared me for college. My teachers, for the most part, wre extremely dedicated and well-educated in their subject. I received a lot of attention when I struggled and had help easily at my disposal. I believe Freeman is what you make it, so make it great!

I am in the specialty center (Leadership, Government, Global Economics) at Freeman and I absolutely love it. Although I`m not interested in politics, the center has taught me a lot about life and has prepared me for my next four years in college. I am zoned for a different school, so traveling has been crazy (45 minute - hour drive each way) and I`ve had a few negative stereotypes placed on me because of the area I`m from, but I have found a positive place within the school. There`s tons of clubs and sports opportunities (even though Title IX isn`t really paid attention to). School Spirit is mediocre. It`s all about what you make it out to be.
Freeman High School is truly a special place. The community centered around Freeman has become known as the "Freeman Family" because of how close it is and how it has been known to band together in times of need. We have lost a few students to various tragedies in the past 5 years and each time everyone has come together and supported one another. The administration is amazing at their job, the teachers truly have a passion for helping students, and overall, Freeman is a very welcoming place.
