remind everyone of the goal, every Monday is now "No Excuses" Monday.
Freese's student body organization conducted a read-a-thon and a
jog-a-thon to raise the money to furnish every student with a "No
Excuses" t-shirt. Students are excited to wear the shirts that remind us
all how important it is to achieve in school.
Elizabeth Freese Arts and Culture Magnet School aims to provide
every child with the educational skills needed for academic and career
As a magnet school, students are educated with state-approved
core curriculum with a special focus on arts and culture. Those subjects
are woven into academic work to enrich learning and teach students a
broader global perspective. In addition, students explore topics with
local artists, musicians, dancers and actors, on and off campus. More
than 20 Partners-in-Education keep our magnet program enriching and
Freese applies rigorous standards to learning, using multiple
measures of testing and grading students to ensure their learning
remains on target. The school's philosophy is that the principal,
teachers and staff are accountable to parents and the community and most
of all, to our students.
