I absolutely loved this school! I graduated in 2012. The wonderful teachers helped me prepare for high school so I knew what to expect. When I was in 8th grade, I was already learning 9th grade stuff so when I did get to high school, I was already ahead.

I am a current 9th grader at Hill Freedman and honestly I am blown away by how much I've learned and grew in this experience. Since school started I've felt as if the teachers and my principle really are working hard on getting me the best education possible. A+ from me.

I am an alumni of Hill-Freeman class of 88' and now this will be my sons first year here. So far so good. Mr. Majewski is awesome

My daughter is an alumni of this school, and she received the best possible preparation for high school while she was there. I am disappointed that the high school expansion happened too late for her to continue at Hill Freedman.

This school is a great school, the teachers and staff are very friendly and there to help you. However, the principal is rude and pompous and blows things out of proportion. His ego is in the way of the school reaching its full potential.
