    My son loves Freshwater so much that on his last day of kindergarten he came home crying because it was over. He has asked all summer when he can 'finally go back.' They have to be doing things right to have made him so happy. We are looking forward to a great First Grade year!! Memori

    Freshwater is an awesome school! My daughters teacher was the best! She couldnt wait to go to school everday. The staff is always extremely helpful and they encourage lots of parental involvement. I would highly recommend this schhol. It is a world of difference than the school she attended right around the corner the previous year.

    Freshwater Elem is a great school. The staff are always implementing exciting learning programs that my child is enjoying her learning there. They have math night and invite the parents and the children to come get involved in many fun things. They are always availble to the parents for any concerns. The principle is the greatest. He is always out in the public eye at the school t greet you and your child and even takes the time to make follow up phone calls if there was a previous concern. He is always excited about the school day ahead and make each child feel special. I rate this school triple A. Proud parent

    The office staff & the Teachers are the greatest. I know my child is learning and excelling here. I can send my child to school everyday and know he is as safe cared for and protected just like he would be with me. Thanks Freshwater Office & Teachers.
