Frontier is an AWESOME school. They have the best staff and faculty. Leaving Frontier when we moved was one of the hardest things I have done. The teachers really care about the students and the principal gives 110% 24/7. We miss all of our Frontier family.
Frontier has excellent teachers and staff! The teachers and principals are caring and always give 100%
Frontier is an amazing school and they have the greatest teachers in the world
To my knowledge, their text books are good -NONE OF THE RADICAL STUFF! The teachers are great; they are constantly acknowledging the students for 'student of the month', excelling in this or that; there is art, music and physical activity in the curriculum, and a great school nurse and staff, Principal, etc. - they all seem to really care about the students; they also safeguard the school.
The administration and teacher's are wonderful. They get the kids involved which really matters and the parent group looks to help the school.
Frontier is a nurturing environment where parents, teachers, students, and the administration all work together for the individual goals of the students.
The staff is great. The principals are great. Overall a great school.
My son has been going here since kindergarten and he is doing wonderful. The teachers he's had are great. My daughter who is now in college, graduated from frontier in 2004.
We moved from Frontier to a school in the Deer Valley district. We missed both the Peoria school district, and Frontier so much. Her first seven years of school were wonderful at this school. We did have two less than perfect school years, but that's to be expected in any school.
I am a eighth grade student at this school and i had always hated reading. I was failing the first semester and when the my reading teacher( Mrs. Rogers) realized this she came to me and got me organized in not only reading but every subject. She had taught me to not procrastinate and i am happy to say i came from this school. Mrs Solter has also made our school a much funner education system. Not only do we have fun but we have excelled on our AIMS testing for the past three years. And i have to thank PTSO for making eighth grade graduation the best. When I leave I hope my Siblings will enjoy what i had.
That last parent has issues! I was on the PTSO a few years ago. We had 3 working moms on our board.There are night training meetings!PTSO is parents who are willing to lend a hand to benefit our kids. There are 2 PTSO fundraisers a year(not a month)All of the profits go back to the school. PTSO has bought swings and sand, trees, shade structures,many mobile computer labs,etc.. So if you don't want to help out with the fundraiser, how sad for you.My child is in the gifted program, and there is no need for any extra tutoring on weekends.Mr. Kwant is brilliant. Does parking make a school better? No!Walk! Frontier has a wonderful,caring staff and Ms. Solter is an incredible principal.This is my 7th year, and I feel blessed to be apart of such a great ,excelling school.I have made friends for life,and there are no cliques!We love to help!
Frontier is a great school if your child is of average intelligence. The bar is set to the lowest level learner. The office staff acts like you are intruding when visiting. Parking is a disgrace. Actually, parking is almost nonexistent. The PTSO is very cliquish (catering to the stay-at-home-parent). The school requires training before volunteering for school events or in the classroom. Training is often during the weekdays in the middle of the afternoon. Special events are also scheduled for these same hours. The general attitude is that you're a bad parent if you're not involved in the PTSO or their events. PTSO fundraisers a couple of times a month (again with the guilt). School for my child has now become a place to socialize and go to while I finish my degree. I have to supplement his learning with a tutor on the weekends and after school. Run!
Great principal. Plenty of extra-curricular activities. However, curriculum is lacking for Gifted students and accelerated learning appears discouraged. Class size on the large side. Teachers, for the most part, have been receptive (there are always a few who aren't)
My three children have attended Frontier for the past 7 years, and we have had a great experience from the word GO! The teachers have been exceptional, the PTSO very active and creative, and the administration is working to make this school the best that it can be. My family is fortunate to live in Frontier's boundaries. The school is simply the BEST!
If your child is fortunate enough to get Mrs. Graham as a teacher you are in for a pure delight. Mrs. Graham is an exceptional woman who truly cares for the well being and development of her students. We had to move mid year and my son took to her like no other adults he has been in contact with. He is normally not a talker, but broke out of his shell thanks in part to Mrs. Graham's attitude & charisma. I was very pleased with this school year and hope that next year will be just as fantastic. I truly appreciated seeing a teacher enjoy her job which directly affected her class.
Both of my boys have attended Frontier. My oldest has had excellent teachers such as Mrs. Ball and Mr. Kwant but he has also had some bad experiences. My youngest is benefiting from those experiences. The new principal has been a welcome change. She returns phone calls and works with the parents about any problems. Overall, I am very pleased with the school.
this school has shown great leadership for their district in both academics and sports and extra-curricular activities I am a student in the eight grade and up until this year there administration was outstanding but with the new principal and new Vice-Principal the school is changing a lot and i am not too happy with it
Our children have attended this school since 2000. I have found very little to be happy about. The administration has been non-existent to date. We were hopeful with the arrival of the new principal this year that things would change. So far, we have not seen overwhelming positive change but we are willing to give her time. There are a few teachers that are excellent and we applaud them. Sadly enough, the majority of them are lacking in character.
My family has attended Frontier for several years now and we have been nothing but pleased with the experiences our children are receiving. Their tests scores have now climbed to 'exceeding mastery' and they Love going to school every day. There are days they aren't feeling well and still beg to go. The teachers are awesome! You sense they truly like their profession and love their students. The teachers are awesome to work with. We have to mention one particular teacher, Mrs. Fischer. She is just the greatest! Our son had her as a 5th grade teacher and we just can't say enough about her enthusiasm, her positive attitude, and the way she boosted his self esteem. She also has a great website that kept us informed about everything! Frontier Elementary definitely is our recommendation for a quality education and positive learning environment.
