I must say i found it interesting that 38 positive messages about Frontier were posted May 12-20, 2010. I find that suspicious. Our daughter seems to enjoy Frontier, however, despite her high academic abilities, she always seems to be falling behind since enrolled here. Our attention is not brought to issues with her education until parent-teacher conference or when report cards come home. There seems to be not much accountability or discipline around completing assignments and "cramming" is encourages. This may result in high test scores but the information itself is not retained. I understand 33 students to one teacher is challenging however a note home, an email or some form of communication would give us as parents the opportunity to help resolve whatever it is that is stifling our child from perform to her full potential. Our child, previously a straight A student, is now I fear being overlooked and allowed to fall through the cracks.
I was shocked to read the previous reviews of this school and principal, as I have had nothing but positive experiences since my child transferred to this school. Ms. Connelly, the principal, is an amazing leader and the eighth grade team of teachers, fantastic. She is proactive and does not tolerate bullying or negative behavior and takes charge of adverse situations quickly. My child is finally in a well-run, high standards school, and as a parent, I couldn't be happier.
My two little girls had the time of their lives at this school MrsConner and Mrs B you will be missed so much Summer and Keirsten miss you amazing and terrific teachers!!!
My family and I moved here from another state and we are shocked to see the teacher dressed in flip flop, wrinkly tee shirts and shorts. They sure lack professionalism and think these teacher should be dressed in business attire when teaching our children not in flip flops!!!!! Now I know why so many families in AZ attend Charter schools.
The only reason why this school doesn't earn FIVE starts is the poor leadership of the administration! Most of the teachers are amazing; however, over the past couple of years with the new principal, about 30 staff members have left. It's NOT the school it was when my children attended.
Bottom line this is our last year at Frontier the principal is a joke! This used to be a good school. This principal seems to give UP on kids very easily, don't waste your time!
I think that this school is great! I love it! It has great staff and teachers! Some people might not like it but i give it 5 stars!
zero school administration has a blin eye on bullying. ithdrew my child, i WISH I WOULD HAVE DON IT SIX YEARS AGO
Not a great school if you are seeking a challenging environment for your kids. Very poor support when bullying issues are evident. Let's just sweep it under the rug
There is an AMAZING staff. You can really feel part of the community that is created here.
I have had four of my six children attend Frontier so far. I have loved how welcomed I feel when I walk through the doors. The teachers, staff, and administration have always been willing to talk with me and greet me with a smile. When I have had concerns about my children, the teachers have been very willing to discuss them with me and I truly feel that I am a partner with Frontier in my children's education.
I love that fact that Parents are invited to be involved with the school, the staff is really great and the teacher are awesome. I am so proud to have my daughter attend school there.
Frontier has great teachers and a supportive administration that works well together.
Because the people who work at this school really care about the kids!
Frontier is the best! It's a fairly large school, but you'd never know it. All of the teachers and even the staff take time to get to know the kids, and are always will to help out!
As a teacher myself, I have sought out a school with an excellent staff, high academic standards, a warm and inviting learning environment, and extracurricular that will challenge my boys to reach for and achieve their full potential I have found that Frontier excels in all these areas.
The teacher and staff are incredible! Both of my sons went to Frontier Elem School and love it!
I know the dedication that the teachers put forth for all the students. They are the best in the district. Our kids are the proof of that.
From the teachers, to the administrators, to all other staff members, the parents, students, and the PTSO, etc. - you name it -Frontier is the best!!!
