Principal’s Message

Stephen Theall, Principal

Learn. Persevere. Excel.  This is the vision the staff of Art Freiler School have reached for since our doors opened in 2001.  These three words still ring true today as they describe the goals our team shares for every child that walks through our halls and enters our classrooms.

I am honored to serve the Freiler Family as Principal and lead this commitment to the success of our children.  I am fortunate to serve in the same community that my loved ones and I call home.  Collectively, Art Freiler School works tirelessly to ensure all students learn at high levels.  Our teachers work together to share learning targets and teaching practices.  Our office staff and paraprofessionals tend to the individual needs of students and families.  Our custodians, yard supervisors, and food service team help provide a safe, healthy, and orderly learning environment.

Learning at high levels doesn’t take place without its struggles.  The tasks and projects students complete are not designed to be easy.  Success is a challenge and anything worth achieving will require hard work.  The staff of Art Freiler School focuses on developing a growth mindset in our children. This is needed to persevere through the difficulties of rigorous schoolwork to reach and exceed learning goals.

Families, teachers, and staff want our children to dream and to achieve.  The education Art Freiler School provides allows our students to explore their strengths and passions as they move from early childhood to adolescence.  Together, we can make sure our students leave Art Freiler School with the discipline, confidence, and focus needed to excel in high school and beyond.

If there is any way I can help your child reach their personal or academic goals do not hesitate to reach out to me at (209)830-3309 or
