A Day in the Life At Freedom Elementary

A Day in the Life At Freedom Elementary

Freedom Elementary is a K-5 school serving approximately 500 students in the West Fargo Public School District. Our staff believes in the vision of Every Child, Every Day. We are committed to the academic and social-emotional growth of all learners, positioning them for a promising future in a rapidly changing world.

Since first opening its doors in 2012, Freedom Elementary has gone through four major grade level configurations and boundary changes as new schools have been built in our rapidly growing community. Despite the ever-changing needs of our students, Freedom Flyers have continued to soar. We attribute student success to teacher collaboration, commitment to our district's guaranteed viable curriculum, and continued professional development on best practice instructional strategies to maximize student learning.

At Freedom Elementary School, we believe that every adult and every student makes a difference. Our staff members strive to develop strong relationships built on mutual respect, caring, trust, and high expectations. Freedom's caring culture provides the guiding principles, values, and operational framework for every interaction. It is the little things we do every day that add up to create the whole. We are committed to knowing each child individually to help them thrive as learners and members of our community.
