Hill Freedman World Academy started out as a good school. After the merge however, things began to go downhill. I would like the administration to start communicating better with teachers and students, as well as becoming kore organized in general.

Hill Freedman is a place that pushes every single student. It is an amazing school and when the work hits you they have a network of teachers willing to come before school stay after school to make sure you stay on top of the work. Even when it gets hard they won't stop pushing you. Because we are such a small school students are close to each other one way or another and it's a amazing feeling to have. Over all the curriculum and people makes the school an amazing place.
It is a very small school that is academically challenging being an IB school. Being a small school, there is little high school experience, but that improves the relationship between students.
