    "This is a great school. The rules are a little tight ,but in the end they are worth it. My daughter was from catholic school and knowing that I didn't have to pay for a decent education took alot of stress off of me. If your child is not serious about their education do not send them there,but if your child is serious , this is the place."

    "This is my sons first year, he is an 11th grader, so far I have been impressed, my son has long term goals set up and one of them is to get into a good college. He has plenty of homework, and he says that he is challenged and that is a plus, the feedback from both the teachers and staff is really on point and you are treated in a respectfully manner, which is always a plus in my eye. I attended the parents night event and was totally blown away because of the high attendance rate of parents and that was truly awesome."

    "I love Freire. It's great school to me. The only bad thing about it is how ridiculous some of the rules are. The teachers always care about how you're doing and if you need help, they give it. I highly recommend this school."

    "11/2/07 My son attends Freire Charter School, and I must admit that this school, as a college-prep, does prepare him for college. However, while I understand the need for rules and regulations, Freire has gone way over the line! As some others have pointed out, it is 'ridiculous'! Though my son is a senior...soon to graduate, I absolutely cannot wait until he does! Every time I see the Freire's name/number pop up on the caller-id, I get extremely disturbed, thinking my son has been accused of something asinine, which will either get him suspended or expelled. But as already pointed out, he will soon graduate, Lord's Will, and it's already seven months in counting!! Thus, if you are thinking about sending your son/daughter to this school, academically...it is well worth it; however, peace of mind, goes a long way, so really consider the headaches that may accompany your decision."
