What Makes Us Special

1:1 Technology for All Grades

Freedom Hill ES is an FCPSOn school. In FCPSOn schools, each student receives an FCPS-issued laptop to access dynamic resources and participate in learning tailored to the student’s individual needs. Students will have access to the device at school, and in some schools and grade levels, they will also be able to take their device home.

Advanced Academic Enrichment and Local Level IV Program
