• Hello Yetis!
    It is my pleasure to welcome you to Nettie S. Freed K-8 Expeditionary School.  We are located on the North side, and our building is built on the site that had previously been home to Freed Middle School, and later, Heroes Academy.   We are excited to be able to bring a school back to this part of town.
    Our staff has been working hard to get everything ready for our students to arrive, and we can't wait to welcome them into our incredible new building.  That hard work will continue through the rest of the year.  We will be working alongside our students to dive deep into interesting topics and areas of study that will help equip them with the skills that they need to be successful.  We will support our students as they learn, discover, and grow through the use of Crew - a structure and an attitude that shares the responsibility of learning with everyone involved.
    Our school is one that will continue to grow and evolve for several years.  We will continue to add new grade levels for the next few years, until we have reached our full K-8 capacity.  We will also continue to build and develop the learning expeditions that give us our name for several years.  Each year we will add more layers of study and more connections to our local community to help deepen our students' understanding of the material they are learning about.    We will also continue to add more career connections and programming to expand our Career and Technical Education (CTE) focus.
    I am very excited to be starting this new adventure with you.
