Dear Freeport High School Families,
Summer is finally here and we are all so lucky to live in this beautiful state and enjoy all that Maine has to offer in the summer season. Although our hallways are missing our students, life at FHS is still busy this summer! We are in the final stages of the building renovation, where the art rooms and new STEM room will be completed, the front entrance and main office will be redesigned, the 300 wing bathroom will be renovated and new flooring will be down in the hallways as well as other pieces of the project. Our students will return to a completed renovation and we are ecstatic to share our incredible space at the start of the 2017-2018 school year. Some of our student athletes are working hard in the gym, in the fitness center and on the fields this summer to prepare for the upcoming seasons. Some of our students are working on summer classes, summer internship programs and other fantastic opportunities in and beyond RSU5. Many of our teachers are working to develop and enhance curriculum over the summer and we appreciate all of their hard work. We are looking forward to welcoming the Class of 2021 to our school community and they will be our first proficiency-based diploma class at Freeport High School. Students, parents and community members are encouraged to take a look at our Student Handbook and Program of Studies, both of which are accessible on this school website, as they give insight to our academic programs and operations of our school. Feel free to contact the main office over the summer for any questions or support needed.

Aug. 9 and 10: FHS staff professional development workshop days
