Open Quote When I went to school there in 2001 we had the 3rd highest SOL scores in the state. The teachers are awesome for the most part and every single economic class is represented. Close Quote

Open Quote Both my husband and I are an alumni of Douglas S. Freeman High School and are parents and siblings of alumni of Freeman. There is no finer school in Henrico County and the Commonwealth of Virginia. The high standard of education offered there now is of the same high quality it was when I attended. It is one of the reasons we chose to relocate to that school district when we returned to Richmond. I hope my grandchildren are able to attend this fine school when the time comes! Close Quote

Open Quote As a graduate and a parent I have been very pleased with Freeman. Freeman has provided my children with an excellent education. My children have also had to learn that the world is a diversified place. Not everyone is the same color or has the same amount of money. My oldest is excelling at college and in the world and I am sure the others will too. Close Quote

Open Quote I was a student at Freeman in the early '70's, and enjoyed the programs available to all students' aspirations! The school was overcrowded, and easy to get lost in the masses, but the teachers did the best they could! My only concern was the prevalent use of the confederate flag as a symbol for the school. But we were allowed to smoke our cigarettes, 5 min. between classes to socialize, had an administration who allowed girls to wear jeans when initially we couldn't, and hired teachers who taught us HOW to think, not WHAT to think. I Loved the art classes(Miss Kilvington and Mrs. Stratton rocked!), and the Distributive Eduction Department took us to Tyson's Corner when it first opened...yea, Mr. Gainous!) Miss Nause had us reading cutting-edge literture and analyze newspaper articles for bias in English. Mr. Devito, our history teacher, gave us global exposure to belief systems foreign to us. All of these teachers were crucial to the development of who I am, today. It was only when I reached the 11th grade, and the puritan ethic was being forced on us in English that I felt my rebelliousness coming-out in force. Freeman moved with the times, intellectually, on most levels, in spite of the conservative (read confd. flag)mindset that tried to impose itself on the student population. It was then I couldn't stand it anymore. Close Quote

Open Quote Very diverse student body with excellent commitment to academics and community service. Excellent faculty. While some parents are distinctly disengaged with the school, others are extremely active and take a strong interest in curriculum and academics. One of the toughest high schools in the state as rated by college admissions officers. Just ask James Madison University its opinion of DS Freeman's academic rigor. Close Quote

About Student-Teacher Ratio
Student/teacher ratio is calculated by dividing the total number of students by the total number of full-time equivalent teachers. Please note that a smaller student/teacher ratio does not necessarily translate to smaller class size. In some instances, schools hire teachers part time, and some teachers are hired for specialized instruction with very small class sizes. These and other factors contribute to the student/teacher ratio. Note: For private schools, Student/teacher ratio may not include Pre-Kindergarten.
