    Amazing! They have a great principal and my child is happy to go to school.

    This school has changed for the better! I am the proud parent of a scholar who recently graduated with honors at this school. The teachers and principal motivate the students to succeed. If your child needs help in any academic the teachers make time for them. The guidance counselor helped me place my child into a great high school. The teachers reward the students with trips and prizes which gives them motivation to succeed. It also shows the students that with hard work you will be rewarded with a great job or promotion or any goal that your child is striving to achieve. I recommend this school to anyone who wants the best education in a middle school for their child.

    Freedom Academy Charter School has changed! After a couple of few years of mismanagement - the school is on an upswing. The teachers really care about the students and the management really care abouth the school. It is a wonderful place to bring your children. The staff is dedicated to teach and guide your child. The help with the High School placement of the 8th grade students. They will do whatever it takes for your child to learn and grow.

    Freedon Academy Charter school is a joke. They treat the children as if they are Robots. When visiting the school I notice how most of the teachers talk At the students and not to them. Nothing gets resolved when you have concerns. It only get worst. One thing they are good at is pulling the wool over the parents eyes.

    I think the teachers do try their best here but they are limited in what they can do to weak to non-existent leadership at the top. Positively the school has added some extra curricular activities (basketball and cheerleading) for students to be involved in.

    Kipp Freedom Academy in Camden is by far not the school you would expect it to be. In all honesty you would expect a KIPP School to have better control than a public school in the city of Camden however that is clearly not the case. The leadership nor the teachers have the slightest idea of what they're doing or trying to accomplish. Overall I believe KIPP Headquarters would be horrified at how awful that school is being operated.
