    This is my daughter's first time attending school. She's in kindergarten and she loves it I can already see her coming out of her shell. She's encouraged to learn and read daily. When she gets home she is so excited about her day!

    Freese does employ good teachers with a drive to teach. Be your childs advocate for a good education and they will be sucessful @ freese. There are before and after school enrichment for children who need extra support with academics. Also there is a west African dance and drumming program great for students. Parent involvment is crucial to the sucess of our students.

    This school has average academic programs. The availability of music art sports and extracurricular activities are very limited. There is limited parent involvement.

    Freese is an excellent school. The teachers and staff are wonderful. Freese has a variety of activities and clubs for the children to become involved in. I recommend this school for children starting out in Pre-K thru 6. The teachers and staff make learning easy and fun. You can see the happiness in each childs eyes. I saw it in mine. Parent involvement at Freese is the best. Many parents are involved with the classrooms children and teachers. My personal experience at Freese was a delight one that my child and I will never forget. Elizabeth Freese Elementary is a great school.
