With just over 100 students per grade, Freire is a school where teachers know your name. It’s easier to make friends and build community when you’re not one in a thousand.
And our strong code of conduct and behavioral expectations mean that Freire is a place you can be yourself and focus on learning—as well as participating in our many field trips and extracurricular activities!
Freire is located in one of the safest neighborhoods in downtown Wilmington, on the banks of the beautiful Brandywine River in the historic Midtown Brandywine neighborhood. As a member of the Freire family, the city will become your living classroom—you’ll experience a wide array of community resources, museums, theaters, and natural and historical landmarks, all just footsteps away.
With school buses that travel throughout New Castle County and the option of free DART passes for students who want them, getting to and from school every day is easy. And our after-school bus routes ensure that no matter where you’re coming from, you can participate fully in school activities.
