Dear Freedom 7 families,
I proudly joined the Freedom 7 family as principal in January 2019. Communication and relationships are important to me and joining Freedom 7 to serve our teachers, students and their families will be the focus of my work.
We have tried to post all information that we believe you will find helpful, based on input from our school community. As an authorized IB Primary Years Program School, our philosophy, goals and curriculum are aligned to meet IB requirements. I encourage you to use the links provided to search the International Baccalaureate Organization's web site for more information about this accredited worldwide school network.
Over the past several years, Freedom 7 has celebrated exemplary student achievement and continue to rank at the top of our state, in overall academic performance. This success is due to the amazing commitment of our outstanding staff and exceptional support from parents and community members. I couldn’t be more excited about the possibilities for our students in the future.
