    Overall a very good high school. Academics and athletics are above average. The facility itself needs to be updated a bit in order to remain competitive. The one problem I have is other people on this forum overstating a bit. Let's face it it's not New Trier.

    I didnt like the school at all. They made you ware Id's and forced you to take gym classes. The fact that you had to wake up at 7 30 and go to 8 classes was terrible. If you can stick it out and wait until you go to a different school/college things will get much better.

    Mediocre teachers and underfunded advanced programs it's probably more of a community issue but since we moved here we've been disappointed with the school (2 children attended within the past 6 years).

    This is by far one of the greatest schools in the Chicagoland area. Challenging courses teachers that really care about their students. I am very happy both my children attend Fremd High school. Palatine has excellent grade schools and high schools.

    I love Fremd. I have been to many schools and Fremd has by far been the best! The teachers and staff are awesome. I am so glad that graduated from Fremd!

    This school was top notch. Not exactly the most diverse place in Chicagoland but what it lacks in diversity in makes up for in quality academics. Unfortunatly at the time I was making the best choices in life and did not make the best of my education at Fremd. Needless to say it did not take me long to shape up finish JC and graduate UCSC. I do not think I this would have been possible had I not recieved an education at Fremd. I just wish I had not been so young and dumb I never showed my teachers the respect they deserved.
