Freedom Academy opened their charter school in 2002 in Scottsdale for students in kindergarten through 9th grades. The school provides a quality education where students can achieve their goals in a small close knit learning environment. Along with providing the basic core subjects, the school also offers a few other activities that students can join including computer arts, band, dance, chorus, drawing, drama, and sports such as football, cheerleading, basketball, and physical education classes.
Reviews by parents are mainly positive with most parents expressing their appreciation of the principal, teachers, and of the school as a whole. The school treats all students equally including those with disabilities and the bullies. Each child is treated not only equally, but is given the attention they need to succeed. Parents were very pleased that all teachers work hard to learn more about each student in the school even those that are not in their class. Parents stated that their children love school and have all kinds of wonderful things to say after school about their day and what they are learning in school. The school works with each child on an individualized basis and will create a curriculum that works for each child.
