    "I am a MS parent also & I feel their discipline policy is not fully developed. Disciplinarians should have some level of child development training or at least be certified in Social Svcs. FCS specifically advises applicants that they will be working with urban youth, that being said-they should have systems in place to TREAT urban youth, not politely advise you to withdrawal your child. This is totally contrary to educating them. Their 'no tolerance' policy only removes that child from their school, this only contributes to missed educational lessons. Historically, researchers have found that suspensions DO NOT work. If the student is not a threat to themselves or others, FCS should consider in-house suspensions. I was not aware of the high turnover rate at the MS, however my child's teacher was recently abruptly 'let go'. FCMS, however, does have other systems in place to assist in student development. Unlike other schools, FCMS has an academic advisor for each grade, classroom aides, a family therapist, other non-teaching staff & pleasant staff to make this a full-service educational institution."

    "My son went to the Middle school. In 3 words HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE. I was forced to withdraw my son because he had dispute with his friend off school grounds. There was a misunderstanding were they thought about fighting but did NOT. This was grounds for expulsion or the option they so graciously offered, withdrawal. There policies are completely unrealistic when it comes to teenagers. This misunderstanding happen through a third party trying to make them fight who also video taped the dispute. The boy that provoked/ video tapped is still a student. My son had never been in any trouble or suspended in this school or any other. My best friend daughter was bullied so horribly she had to go into therapy for thoughts of suicide. This school turnover rate as far as teachers/ principles is ridiculous. My sons grades where always up and down during his time here because in August he would have one teacher/principle and in February he would have another. Be warned and be cautious if you select the Friere Middle School for your child. I am a highly involved parent and it still wasn't enough to prevent my child from being railroaded."

    "I am a parent of an student @ Freire Charter School. I feel that Freire Charter School is one of the Best schools that really inforce the CODE OF CONDUCT! This school will not put up with violence in or outside of the school & because of this students can focus on education @ all times. My daughter is an honor student & she works hard to maintain her grades. Freire really prep. students for college & your child will work hard . Most of all they will be ready & proud @ the end. I must say that if you are a parent that will make time for your childs education & communicate with the teachers well,...you should not have any problems."

    "My daughter is in the eleventh grade with a 4.0 gpa avg. This school can be ridiculous with their strict rules and attitude. The teachers are not attentive, they have bad attitudes. The leaders are just as worst as the teachers. Yes the academics are good but are horrible when a student wants to understand the work."
