Welcome to Freese!
Freese Arts and Culture Magnet School is an exciting place of learning. We work diligently everyday to ensure students get a strong academic foundation in their elementary school years. From the moment students arrive at Freese, we monitor their growth in reading and mathematics. Our expectation is that every student will grow in these areas and be prepared to continue their growth, where ever they may go upon leaving Freese. Science and Social Sciences are taught to round out the core curriculum.
The arts thrive at Freese. Through Freese's Arts and Culture Magnet program, all students are exposed to units of music, visual arts, theater and dance, taught by professional experts in those fields. Students take multiple field trips and enjoy assemblies each year. Students' artwork and experiences are displayed each year at our Spring Arts and Cultural Festival. Every Freese student displays one or more pieces of work at the festival and many performances and activities are held.
Freese cares about physical fitness. As part of the curriculum, students participate in a Physical Education class once a week and complete additional physical activities during the week with the classroom teacher.
Knowing that students must be good citizens in order to be productive and enjoy freedoms in our society, Freese works diligently to ensure students understand acceptable norms of behavior. We start with four simple statements that go a long way to help students, if implemented:
Choose to do right.
Students who take these four statements to heart find that doing these things really helps as they grow and learn.
I am very grateful for the opportunity to serve the students of Freese Arts and Culture Magnet School. Freese has been in existence over 50 years and in that time, it has established itself as a strong community school where staff and families work together for the good of its children. It is my hope that we will continue that strong tradition and many more children will grow up to lead productive, happy lives with the foundation they have built at Freese.
