    Both of my kids attend this school and I feel very confident that the teachers here do the best to their ability to able to provide the uttermost education that my children need to become successful in life. Great communication between staff and parents. The school does a great job in providing extracurricular activities for our children. .....both are doing good.....i m so happy...

    My kids are doing well (academically). and I'm content with teachers involvement in ensuring students get the best education.

  • (5 years ago)

    The teachers really do care about the learning levels of the students and getting them where they need to be. My 3rd graders teacher stays in constant communication with me and has offered after school tutoring once the class size increased and those in need of more individual help like my daughter was at issue.

    I have been to this school about 1 half year and last year stink! Everyone talks and talks and talks but since they changed it to traditional its better.

    This school is awesome so is green track!!! Especially 5th grade teacher Mrs. DeCoite. People agree that this is one of the best schools worldwide. My daughter thinks so too. She has made LOTS of friends. People also are very nice in this school and district although the rules about not having any food parties don't make learning more fun. The idea of having dances and family fun nights is very involving too.

    This school is really good. They have great academic ares though some teachers are not that good. But some are still good. Also some students are really talktive so sometimes it is really hard to do works in the classroom. Though this school is still good.

    My daughter started at Art Freiler Elementary school this July and I must say I am really impressed with the facility and faculty students and parents. The expectations of responsible behavior and excellence in achievement are exactly what prompt students to do their best and rise to a higher level. The campus is lovely and appears more secure than other schools. The teachers seem truly happy in this school and the students do too. Especially in comparison to my daughter's previous school Art Freiler is a refreshing change. I'm so happy we moved to Tracy!

    I am very pleased with the teachers and their expectations of the students. My daughter is in sixth grade and has attended Art Freiler since Kindergarten. I moved to Livermore but chose to keep her enrolled because of the structure and communication by all of the staff. She has made the honor roll and principal's honor roll two years in a row. I think that shows a lot! A big thank you to the staff and the teachers! Nichole Silva - a parent

    So far we feel the teachers and classroom experience both our 6 and 7 year old have experienced has been excellent. Our kids continuously show progress and excel in some academic areas and the teachers put in extra time to work with them in areas they need more attention. I also like the fact they also pay attention to character at this school since we know in life character counts!

  • (9 years ago)

    What a wonderful school. The teachers are excellent and am glad that both my boys will experience a great education from this school.

  • (10 years ago)

    This school is great. They offer extra curricular activities such as talent show plays music sports etc. The parent participation is excellent. The teachers are very dedicated as is the staff. I had two children attend for 2 years and we loved our experience there.

    This school is a good school to learn about technology. Some of the teachers aren't that good but overall they are pretty good. At Freiler it is more of a learning environment and not a school that doesn't care about their students.

  • (11 years ago)

    This school has continued to accomplish great things for the students in spite of the recent budget cut backs. This is due to the leadership of the staff teachers and parent involvement. I look forward to my children benefitting from several more years at Freiler!

    Wonderful school all the way around. I will agree that this school is sort of congested or busy for drop off and pick up of children but that is partly because of the school population as well as it being a very popular school. The principal and staff are great. I can't say enough about them. They all have demonstrated to me that they have the best interests of the children in mind. The fact that there is added congestion and the crossing guards are not always available has nothing to do with the school that is a city issue and really does not belong on this site! Keep up the good work Frieler Stars!

  • (11 years ago)

    Good school but over-rated. Great principal. Safety issues are a concern particularly in the pick-up of children. Very busy and congested street. Poor traffic management. School crossing guards aren't consistently available to help small children either. Good school grade C
