Principal's Message

  • On behalf of Freedom Middle School (FMS) teachers and the entire staff, welcome to FMS and welcome to the 2021-22 school year!  We would like to take this opportunity to thank our parents for entrusting us with the safety and education of their children.  Our commitment at FMS is to provide a Safe, Respectful, and Responsible learning environment that will empower students to become creative problem solvers, critical thinkers, and inspired learners prepared for high school, college, and life in the twenty-first century. This exceptionally amazing school was one of only a few schools in Kern County to be reccognized as a Gold Ribbon School (2016-2017). 

    The Staff at Freedom is committed to help develop your child's social, emotional, and academic skills.  It is a privilege having your students here at FMS and it is our desire to help each student be a successful learner. The California State Standards being implemented make for a more rigorous and comprehensive approach to learning: as students will be challenged to develop their analytical skills, communicate their learning verbally, in writing, and/or in a presentatiion.  I expect all students to connect with our school; stand up to mistreatment, vandalism, and to anything you know is not right. Remind yourself you do not have to follow the crowd.  Be yourself and even when no one is watching, do the right thing. 

    Parents, please help us by reinforcing school expectations at home.  With your help, our school will continue to be a school community in which every person feels respected, valued, and is encouraged, accepted, and challenged to achieve at the highest levels.  I am excited for the opportunity to work with you and your child to provide a positive and safe learning environment that supports student success.  Once again, welcome to Freedom Middle School!  I am honored to serve as your principal.
