In the last couple of years, the academic program of this school has deteriorated significantly. Teachers are NOT orientated with the mission of the school and therefore are set up to fail. Most do not understand the process of language immersion and therefore resort to English when they think their kids are struggling. This actually creates more problems. Administration thinks that if a teacher can speak Spanish they can teach immersion. There seems to be a lot of children struggling. I would not recommend this school at this time. They need to renew their vision and unify their staff and parents so everyone is on the same page. Sad to see.

I have currently have one child attending school at Fronteras. My child has been reading since Kindergarden. They give you online assignments to do with your children, reading and math. You as a parent, it is your responsiblity to study with your children and they will be reading and understanding math in no time. My child is reading chapter books and doing 2nd grade math and is in first grade. Parents, aunts and uncles cannot blame the public schools. Seriously, parents need to have more involvement with there childrens learning. Parents expect too much, they think a public school will teach there children all they need to know in life, wrong!

I have two nephews, ages 7 and 9, who have attended Fronteras Charter School since kindergarten. Somehow, these two boys were passed lazily through multiple grades without so much as learning how to read, much less to write or do basic arithmetic. Furthermore, they don't know or understand Spanish. They've only just learned to read after being enrolled in an extracurricular program. I strongly recommend avoiding this school.

About the tests


In 2010-2011 Alaska used the Standards Based Assessment (SBA) to test students in grades 3 through 10 in reading, math and writing, and in grades 4, 8 and 10 in science. The SBA is a standards-based test, which means it measures specific skills defined for each grade by the state of Alaska. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level.
