Our Freedom Middle School program is held at Poplar Grove Elementary. Bus F-30 will pick the students up after school at FMS and transport them to PGES.  The FMS students will be combined with the PGMS students. You will pick up your child in the Poplar Grove Elementary front office. 

The MAC Program seeks feedback from its staff and stakeholders. Staff surveys are utilized to seek input.  The relationship between the Site Managers and the MAC Program Supervisor is one of collaboration. The MAC Program also seeks feedback from its most important stakeholders, the students and their parents. Input is always encouraged and the program is made better by the valuable feedback received from the students and their families. Input from building principals and classroom teachers is also actively sought in order to better meet the academic needs of the students.
