    My son has attended Fremont since head start I cant tell you enough about it but I'll try.These teachers are amazing by far they go above & beyond the call of duty for these kids.starting from the beginning the teachers have had that no problem to big for us attitude.proud mother of a Fremont bee. My son is excelling in all subjects some children are excelling faster then others & learning at a different pace has helped.My son is at the top of his class and is being considered for the G.A.T.E program I'm very excited. PTA has so much to offer these kids every penny goes to the kids I hope children's day this year is as great as last year.Alot of parents are not to involved at times I would encourage others to help out its so fun and the parents are awesome. As far as Office personal goes I beg to differ I've seen nothing but good attitudes from these people the principle is never to busy to talk he's out walking around talking to kids and parents...His acting principle isa nice women I've seen her out after school and in the morning.the secretary and attendance lady are so welcoming and nice very helpful. I can't wait for my child to attend 2nd 3rd 4th & proud to say 5th.

    I love this school! My child has had the best education possible. The Administration front office and staff are all very positive. They all care about the education of all students. I can't say enough about the Principal and all he's done for the school. He has done an outstanding job being positive and letting students know they are important. Teachers are caring and focused on academics. That's what a school is for! If parents would investigate more they would find out the Fremont Elementary has been the model school for the district under the current administration! Keep up the job!

    My daughter attends this school and I feel there are only a few genuine teachers there like Mrs. Rabatin Mr. O Ms. Nance Ms. Maeda Ms. Rose Ms. Wong and Mr. Chaves the rest of the teacher are there for the money not for the students. Especially the fourth grade male teachers. The front office staff the attendance and principal secretary are rude they only treat those parents they like nicely the rest they treat rude. The principal Mr. Cota is a joke he is never around and Mrs. Magallanes she pretends she busy by walking around but she does not know how to speak to the parents. She uses street vocabulary to speak to us (parents). My question why does the Superintendent and Board education do something about it and take parents complicates seriously and gets rid of Mr. Cota and Mrs. Magallanes!

    The teachers at this school are great. They go above and beyond to motivate their students. They not only do their job but they also put together activities for the children like literacy month. I know that this must be a lot of work but every year the children are asked to read a certain number of books. If the school reaches their goal they get a 'surprise'. Last year commander Chuck Street from KIIS landed his helicopter at the school. Wow!!! the kids were so excited. The children know to expect a great surprise every year which keeps my children motivated in doing all of those extra book reports. I am only sorry that Fremont only goes up to the 4th grade.

    My daughter has attended Fremont since Kindergarten. She is graduating this year. I have to say all of her teacher's have been wonderful! Ms. Matsunaga Ms. Nance Ms. Rose Ms. Rabatin and Mr. Chavez are all great! They care very much about their students and go beyond what the average teacher does. We are sorry we are moving away to a school district that is one of the #1 in CA. At least I can say I feel my daughter is academically above average and when we enroll her in her new school; she will be ready!
