    Fries Ave. is an excellent school that has come full circle in the last two years because of the principal Ms. Cantu. She has been working hard to bring the wonder of reading library to life. i have never seen a principal so involved and dedicated in school activities. But the one thing that upsets me is no support from the teachers the teachers are much a part of the school as the principal. Overall I am pleased to with how this school is we are a fries family.

    My two kids were doing badly at Wilmington Park so I transferred them to Fries and now both of them are doing great. My eldest just culminated recieving one of the president academic awards. The teachers here are very supportive.

    Fries ave has low academic scores .The teachers are not supported by the principal mrs hinajosa. Theer are some after school activities with ms. Joann but the boys and girls club staff that are there to help the kids with homework do nothing . The only thing good about this school is some of the teachers who put the kids first . There are some teachers who should not be teaching anywhere.
