Wish I could have attended. Such good times. Hopefully I can come to the next one.

I graduated a few years ago and I can honestly say that my time at Freestyle was the absolute best two years of high school. I learned so much and use most of my skills daily (I now design video games). The teachers are all fantastic... Ms. P rocks! Sometimes I wish I could go back and do it all over again.

As a parent of a Freestyle student who graduates this June, I am so appreciative of all the hard work and dedication these teachers show their students. The teachers prepare these kids not only for college, but for a professional career in their chosen field. I am so grateful my daughter has been a part of this amazing school. Thank you to the district for backing this superb learning environment, and thank you to all the hard-working teachers. Looking forward to the big show at the Computer History Museum in February!

Neither of my two kids picked this program - only one was really into this type of stuff. But friend's children have - and it really does rock! The high school district took the money it gets from Google - and it really did something innovative, 21st century technology based, AND creative/artistic/academically integrated. Truly - the standard by which others can be judged!
