As an International Baccalaureate World School, Freedom 7 is a student-centric community sharing core values as well as the privileges and opportunities of belonging to a world-wide network of schools. Freedom 7’s program is academically rigorous and supports excellence in all areas of student achievement. We define and share "best practices" and always seek to improve. We know our students by name, families and friends, their interests and strengths, their goals and aspirations. Among Freedom 7’s many strengths are: working collaboratively to help our students appreciate the beauty and wisdom of the world, learn to communicate effectively with others, love the quest for knowledge, and to show their concern and empathy for others through acts of kindness and service, in the course of becoming. Freedom students are prepared to embrace a strong sense of personal responsibility, to set goals and achieve them, to recognize and accept leadership opportunities, and to become citizens of the world. Weekly professional learning communities enable teachers creativity, collaborative skills, and meaningful reflection and revision of their teaching and learning goals. A high level of parent involvement through volunteer opportunities is an integral part of Freedom 7’s success.
