I hope to choice into a different school with a group of educators that are invested as I am.

If it weren't for the GMP program, Fremont would be in such terrible shape that the state would be stepping in. Yet the GMP program is clearly struggling and people are leaving in droves for Stratton and for District 20. District 11 leadership MUST step in to fix the persistent problems at Fremont. From the top down, the status quo is being enforced while the program continues to slide.

My son is in 2nd grade and is also in speech. I think his speech teacher is fantastic!!! The PE teacher is great and the Art teacher is VERY talented!! I think having a new principal with experience this year (2012-2013) will be a positive step forward for the school. His teacher this year is Mrs. Anderson and she is fantastic!! My son has gone from 36 words per minute in reading to 79 in a month.....partly due to our hard work at home... I would like to see a more secure procedure for getting kids to their parents/to the bus etc. They open the doors and let them loose except one teacher who physically has to see the parent before she lets the child from her sight!!

I was extremely happy with this school. When we decided to pull our son out of Penrose and place him here it was because of the great scores and word of mouth about this school. The gym teacher is great with the kids and the kids respect all of their teachers. The 5th and 6th grade combined class has an excellent teacher, (Mr. Evans). He not only pushes them academically, but also as a person. Our son excelled in math and science and was always trying to be better at everything thanks to the teachers. I hope they get more funding to continue to improve on all of their programs and highly recommend this school for your student.

I like my son's kindergarten teacher. The gym coach is really nice too. I don't think very highly of the principal though. She says the low scores for the school are because of the student who go there. I'm a firm believer that if the kids aren't learning it's not their fault it's the curriculum's fault. you need to change the way you are teaching the students. All kids are great learners if you can figure out a way to catch their interest. One of the poorest schools in I think in district 49 got top scores. So it has nothing to do with how rich the family of the students who go there are or their ethnicity. It's the school itself that makes the difference.
