School Reviews

  • Recommended September 08, 2012 - Unlike most schools in the St. Louis area, The Freedom school really is diverse (in terms of both race and economic background). The teachers are passionate about what they do, and Tim Baker, the head of the school is very accessible and up-beat. I feel my son gets a good quality education there, and we look forward to the Pinewood Derby every year! - Posted by Parent
