William Fremd High School Reviews

I really enjoyed my time at William Fremd High School. I was constantly challenged in my classes to improve myself and my abilities, and I was encouraged to get out of my comfort zone and gain new experiences during my time. Fremd has a lot of great resources for the students to take advantage of, and a great range of classes to take. Fremd does fall short with its faculty however, teachers are either very good and engaged with the class or very bad and disinterested in their classes. The Fremd administration is quite out of touch with the school culture, many students don’t enjoy the Fremd activities organized by the administration. This is all countered by all the clubs and sports available at Fremd. There’s a very wide range of activities available and I would highly encourage and incoming students to join one. Overall my experience at Fremd has been very pleasant, the classes and activities offered were a lot of fun.

People pay more to live Fremd's district for a reason! I've loved all of my teachers and you can tell they are passionate about what they do. There are a lot of different clubs and activities to choose from, and cool events like Writer's Week, Variety Show, and Operation Snowball. People assume that everyone at Fremd is snobby and rich but that is not the case- there are students from all different cultural and financial backgrounds.
Ever since the beginning there has always been encouragement from both my teachers and my coaches to do the best I can in all aspects of my life. There are many great opportunities that have prepared me for my next step in life, going to college. Some of which are the variety of AP and honors classes that are available as well as the time some teachers take in mornings to give short test review sessions. Besides the academics, school events are always super fun to go to and the environment is great, especially when you finally get to go to the senior only events.
