Visit Us


Calm. Organized. Clean. Safe.  These are all adjectives visitors have used to describe us upon first arriving at Freire.  As these new visitors walk around our school, they continue to highlight just how different we are from other public schools they have seen.  They marvel at the energy that flows through the classrooms.  They praise how students and teachers genuinely care about each other’s well-being.

Seeing Freire for yourselves is the best way for you and your child to discover if we are the right option for your family.  We hold Open Houses during the fall, and we gladly accommodate requests for personal school tours throughout the academic year.
