    I am a parent and i a m very satisfied with fremonts school cleanness and their new principal<who is really funny and my kids enjoy her very much>

    Generally the teachers at Fremont School are satisfactory in most respects. They are cordial and respond to parents in a timely manner on student's progress. However the same can not be conveyed about the administration. The office staff (including principal) are extremely unprofessional insensitive and rude. They do not follow a code of ethics or proper procedures. What they do manage to accomplish is alienating the parents students and community. Therefore this is not a healthy environment for the impressionable students to be exposed to on a daily basis. At this point the administration's main focus is not with the students but instead centers around their own image.

    Fremont is a very good school with wonderful teachers that understand kids and a great new principal Ms.Sanchez that is funny and understanding and caring but also firm. I enjoy fremont because all the teachers have been there for a long time and are very smart. Fremont is also competing for the CA governors challenge and is in the lead.

    I have always found the teachers very reasonable and caring towards the students without compromising quality of education. Even though they have gone through three principals in the last three years it still remains a good environment.
