Overall excellent. I was trying to just any and everybody who lives in the area to send there children to this school
Fremont is a strong school. It has a cohesive staff that responds well to parent input . There are assemblies, celebrations, sports day, welcome parent activities, book fair, etc. They recently implemented a school-wide anti-bullying plan to prevent any proliferation of bullying. My criticism is the lack of consideration for working parents. During my daughter's K year, the then-principal refused to have after-school care for K students, stating there wasn't a need nor room on campus. No survey, no input, just her decision. When the new principal who had children came, suddenly there was after-K care. Previous principal didn't accommodate working parents. The current PTA schedules its meetings in the morning. Vital information is given during these meetings and if you can't attend, you're out of luck. The PTA's FB updates don't cover the necessary info in detail. The volunteer appreciation tea is scheduled for the middle of the afternoon. If you work, you have to take time off to volunteer in the classroom/events and then take more time off to be appreciated. It's a lack of consideration for working parents that really does a disservice to this school.
We feel very fortunate that our daughter has access to such a great school. Fremont is a special place that offers a wonderful blend of academic and extra curricular activities. We are as engaged as parents in the school (thanks to the strong leadership of or principal) as our daughter is in her studies---due in large part to the great teachers she has had through the years. Each one has treated her as an individual working to bring out her best potential. If you're looking for a excellent academics and a warm, caring environment for your child, Fremont is the place for you. We have been very happy here.
Fremont has involved parents, and teachers and staff who want to make Fremont better every year. The principal listens to input from the parents and tries to help make Fremont a great school.
