    "A few of the teachers were good and seemed to care about the kids but most seem short tempered and would rather not be there. The PTA was unorganized and were not willing to show any money handling proceedures. I helped out with quite a few school functiouns due to the lack of help elsewhere. glad we moved away."

    "Before you send your child to this school be aware of a few facts first. During mcas minths the staff us told to only teach ela all day, included the lower grades. During the month if math mcas they are directed to only teach math all day. Do your child is not getting any other subjects taught for as month at a time. Not sure how this is following the common core standards. If your child is on an iep then make sure it is being followed! If they are supposed to be in a substantially seperate classroom, the the are not. They closed that room and put all the students in regular ed classes. If they have counseling on their grid then most likely they are not getting it. The counselor is too busy being the "librarian". The school also puts kids on 504 plans without even holding a team meeting with the special education director to see if they qualify. They just do it so that the students can get accomodations in time for mcas. That is all the administration cares about. She is an unsupportive leader that takes pleasure in making her staff feel intimidated."

    "My child has been in this school for 2 years and is doing well but he had a great foundation. He has has great teachers at this school. Unfortunately the administration is lacking a lot. The PTO is non-existent and there are no checks and balances with the money that is raised, the Principal controls the money and uses her husbands political power in her practice. The front office staff is mediocre, uneducated and disrespectful. Unfortunately in Springfield you are assigned the schools your children go into and unless you pay for private school or are lucky enough to get into a charter school or out of district school, you have no choice where your child is placed. Again I will say that the teachers my child has had have been great and I do maintain contact with them and I am involved in my child's education."

    "I must say beside my son's teacher who can be difficult at time as well but nothing compared to the rest of the staff. The staff at Freedman school are absolutely inappropiate, disrespecful, worst attitude ever, starting with the principal she is very rude and intimidating. If the principal who's supposed to be the role model for the kids and the rest of the staff in school is so unprofessional and rude, what can you expect about the rest of the staff? As soon as you walk into the office the receptionist is looking at you with such an attitute and it get worst when you ask questions, then follow by the principal. I really feel terrible everytime I have to drop off my child to this school, he is so intimidated, and beg me every morning not to leaving there. The school department needs to start looking into this matter soon before it get any worse. It's not about the quality of education, this is about first impression, discrimination perhaps, and just the level of professionalism is so poor."

    "This is my daughters second year at this school. Just like other reviewers Principal and office staff are very rude and dismissing. I have seen fights and other things that go on and the children involved are at school the next day like nothing happened. There are good teachers at that school but I do beleive they are hindered by the lack of discipline. I try to be involved as much as possible but as a parent I do not get much information. I ask for information to help my Child at home and do not get it, no progress reports. Do not get tests back til weeks later so if she did not understand she is out of luck because they moved on. They had assesments in September it is november still dont know how they did. Everything is crammed in for MCAS. I wish they would keep us parents better informed of their progress and not wait until report cards when its too late."
