Freeport High School Reviews
The staff at FHS actually care about students' success. If a student needs help after school with anything whether it be an assignment or a personal issue, the teachers will take time out of their day just to help that student. The counselors also really make sure they are on the right track to graduation. Tutoring is offered every week for those who need it, free of charge. FHS's college and career center is phenomenal for any student looking for a job or planning on going to college. It holds several events throughout the year where students can visit colleges, attend career or college fairs, learn about FAFSA, college applications, the SAT and the ACT tests and more. There are many clubs, sports, and activities students can partake in at FHS from art clubs and theater clubs to football, basketball, volleyball, and more. My education at FHS really prepared me for the real world. FHS has a lot to offer students of any background and makes sure they are on a path to success!
I’m about to start my last semester here, and it has been interesting. Overall, Freeport isn’t terrible, but it’s definitely not great. I think the best part of the school is the teachers. Not all of them are good, and some of them are actually bad, but the good ones completely make up for that. The teachers put so much time, effort, and a lot of their own money into their classes, and you can tell they care about their students. It’s fairly easy to succeed here because you’re competing against a lot of students who don’t care about their grades. The resources for applying to competitive colleges and college in general are seriously lacking. I’ve had basically no help applying to college despite asking for it. There have been times where the school feels kind of unsafe, but it’s usually fine. I’ve made good memories and friends and I’ve taken great classes with great teachers, but it’s definitely not a great school. Overall very average.
Most teachers are very supportive and loving. We have great programs in almost all fields, including art, theater, music, and sports. We are admired for the students involved in said programs, but the students who aren't as involved are where our faults are. Between gang activity and student physical fights, we are looked at as a bad school. I would like to see administration enforce rules instead of being tough for the first week of the school year and then just letting every thing slip. Also, the kids who do follow rules go unnoticed and feel neglected. Just because we don't speak up all that often doesn't mean we don't exist. We're following the rules they establish, only to become un-established beings. The counselors need to be more involved, especially with kids who are diagnosed with mental health disorders. I feel that this is severely neglected. Someone needs to check in with these students at least once a month or even once a quarter.
