    "Our son has been at FAS for the last 4 years and he has really enjoyed his time there. The teachers are great and the principal has been very accommodating of our son's needs. He has done really well academically and we feel this is due, in part, to the smaller class sizes and caring staff. The smaller enrollment size also gives the school the feel of a private school and the involvement of parents and the PTO is much more than what you might get at a public school. Since the school is a charter school there is no tuition, but parents do help in fundraising which is great for the school/kids and lets them do a lot of fun things they may not have the chance to in a public school. All in all I would highly suggest people consider this school if they are looking for a caring staff, smaller class sizes, and a positive/supportive environment."

    "I am a parent of two children at Freedom Academy. I wanted to write a review because I believe this particular Charter has something that other schools do not have. Along with great acedemics and a great sense of character this school offers you a chance to be part of a family. Linda Hoffman, the principal, opens her door to you the moment you arrive and offers you not only her expertise but also something just as important....she becomes your mentor, your friend, your advisor....she gives to her families at Freedom the ability to relax and trust. She has built a school around knowing each and every student for who they are....not who they are supposed to be. She not only knows every student by name but she takes time to know something special about each and every one of them. I am in awe every day at her tenacity and motivation to make each day at Freedom the best it can be. I feel like my kids are so blessed to have this experience......They are so happy. Freedom ends at 8th grade but Freedom will always be a part of our lives.....I believe with all the confidence in the world that Freedom Academy is a school that stands alone in all its uniqueness."

    "I love Freedom Academy. I have an 8th grader and a 5th grader. I feel truly blessed that I found this school. My kids have done very well. The teachers are incredible and the principal, Linda Hoffman, is out of this world amazing. She has every single teacher learn every single child's name at the beginning of the year so the children feel comfortable reaching out to the teachers. Ms. Hoffman also knows every single student by name. She is very approachable and willing to help the parents with any issues when needed. There is a zero tolerance for bullying and she along with all the teachers keep a very close eye on the kids. My kids are testing great and they are very involved with school activities. Coach Steve makes all the kids want to be healthy, eat right and exercise. I could not ask for more. If you have the opportunity - choose this school."

    "We recently moved out of the state, and we had attended Freedom Academy for two years. I will say that not a school day goes by where I don't think about Freedom Academy, and how amazing of a school it truly is. Being part of a big public school now, makes me realize how special being part of a smaller school is. Freedom creates a safe, warm, welcoming, inclusive atmoshpere for any child and parent, and really values family time. The way they have their teachers organize homework and academics is outstanding. The PE coaches are enthusiastic and encouraging to the kids. The uniforms are affordable and I loved not having to hassle with outfits everyday, or compete with other kids. Also, the fundraising at this school is minimal!! Believe me, being part of a big public school now makes me realize how gentle Freedom was about fundraising, and made it fun for the kids and parents. A big public school has a PTA that might as well be a corporation. Pushing fundraising constantly. Freedom did not have that, and the PTA was a fun way for parents to be involved and contribute to the school. I will always be grateful for the wonderful experience we had at Freedom Academy."
