    On behalf of the Board of Education, I would like to welcome you to the Fremont School District 79 website! The district website is image continuously updated to provide information and resources for our school community.

    Fremont's educational program includes instruction in all core academic areas as well as art, band, library/technology, and physical education. Additional services are provided to eligible students through the ESL/bilingual education programs, reading and mathematics support, special education, social work, speech and language and occupational/physical therapy, and the district’s annual summer school program. Enrichment programs are in place for students in grades K-8.

    There are a variety of extracurricular programs, clubs, and special events in place to engage students and to support the overall mission of our school district where we: Prepare today’s children for tomorrow’s world

    The Board of Education's Vision is to provide an exemplary education through its focus on whole child development, collaboration, and fiscal responsibility. Our work, as a district, is to bring this vision to life at Fremont schools.

    I encourage you to visit our schools and see firsthand the programs and opportunities that are offered to the children in our school district. If you have a question, suggestion or concern related to the school district’s instructional program, school facilities, lunch program, transportation services, finances/budget, or school policies and operations, please contact my office, (847) 566-0169, ext. 4104 or email me
