This school is the real deal! My children have thrived and this school clearly represents the "growth mindset" that they espouse. They are better every year and seem to always be improving and communicating to the community how they are doing it. It is tough to see a low score for our school on the website as someone who sees the powerful teaching and learning each year.
My children have had a great experience at Freedom Hill over multiple teachers. One of my children entered Level IV this year. Greatschools has totally dropped the ball on their ratings, now effectively double penalizing schools with economically disadvantaged or international kids. For example, there are a couple of middle eastern kids whose parents are diplomats. The kids came here not speaking English at ALL in 1st grade. Now two years later they are proficient in English, but you can imagine their test scores are terrible. They aren't even in my childrens' classes, so the existence of these kids in the school has zero impact on my children except to increase their exposure to diversity. However, Greatschools penalizes the school both because these international kids naturally get bad test scores, and then double penalizes them because the school has disparities between students. Get outta here...
Excellent. My children thrived at FHES and continued to do so at their Middle School and High School as well.
It started really well, a great school that had a real community feel and proved that the rating meant little.Over the past 18 months things have gone rapidly downhill and I feel the school has developed a very unsafe and unhealthy culture of disrespect and lack of student support in favor of trying to up their ratings to the detriment of good kids who are having an awful time.I can no longer recommend this school under the current principal.
