Who We Are

 Fremont Elementary School prepares students for success in the 21st Century with student-centered data and leadership instruction. We are committed to help build the necessary leadership skills that will help them succeed and utilize student data to guide instruction and individual student lifeplans.

Family Literacy for English Language Learners key to successful student achievement is the education level of the parents and their involvement in their children's' schools. In partnership with Granite, Mexico's Tecnologico de Monterrey, Utah State University, USOE and the Mexican Consulate in Salt Lake City, Fremont offers afternoon classes to teach online academic programs, in Spanish, for general education degrees (GED) for our Hispanic parents. Classes are taught with our bilingual outreach workers who assist each parent to acquire English fluency and academic excellence. Franklin-Covey Leadership Model School

 Fremont was selected by Franklin-Covey to be their model ‘lighthouse' school for the Stephen Covey 7 Habits of Highly Effective People for elementary age children - The Leader In Me. Leader In Me helps teachers and parents to build the necessary leadership and life-skills in our children that will help them to succeed in tomorrow's world of work. Educational Technologies Prototype School

New educational technology equipment and ideas are being developed to lead our children into the 21st Century and beyond. We are ‘pathfinders' in academics; teacher instruction; parent involvement; and educational technology.

Fremont Elementary School has been distinguished as one of the few schools in the nation as a guidepost school for Stephen R. Covey's "7   Habits for Highly Effective People." Dr. McCarty leads a highly effective team of teachers and students in pursuing win-win situations in the classrooms and in the school.

Fremont Elementary School is a very culturally and linguistically diverse school. It serves approximately 522 students with the following demographics:

* 47% Caucasian
* 36% Hispanic
* 6% Pacific Island
* 11% other Ethnic

 The school boasts nearly 25 languages and nearly 50 nationalities. This is because the school includes housing units for refugees that come to the United States, most of them for the first time and with little to no English abilty.

Consequently, students with a TESOL (ESL/ENL) endorsement are given deference when interviewing for this partner school. Also, to be a strong candidate, it is recommended that you read and understand the following two books before interviewing for this partner school.
