The school is great and the comment on the bottom is hogwash. The school is great and i have been here for two years, and i continue to believe that Frontier has lived up to its standards. They may have even surpassed those standards. Even today we had a school event that showed fair animals, brought to us by the FFA. It has created new memories for the students here as well as myself.

All 3 of my children have attended high school here. I thought that being in the local that it is, my children would be treated with respect and learn with positive reinforcement. Not so. Not only does this school have very few teachers that care about what and how the students learn, the whole staff of employess treat all students with dissrespect. They treat all the students as tho they are all drug users and the drug users get away with breaking all the rules. The dress code is never enforced therefore girls attend school in very proacative clothes. The year book will not allow enough pages for all the students to been seen clearly that work hard and achieve in extracurricular activities unless it is sports, yet they have full pages and lots of them to promote tattoos and other insignificant issues that quite frankly have nothing to do with achievement or add to the encouragement of success when they graduate. Very dissapointed in how this school is run. I feel that Frontier high school has missed a great opportunity to be a leader in education here in bakersfield.

We have been very fortunate to have our sons attend Frontier. The teachers and coaches are very positive and inspiring. Their standards of discipline are higher than the other schools in the area, which is a good thing. Sports and band programs are excellent!

this school is pretty good.i am a freshman and i have enjoyed this school so far. the sports are great and the choir and band are outstanding. a flaw that i would fix in this school is the strictness. students should have more oppoutuity to enjoy their high school years and not looked upon by the security every day.

The teachers at the school for the most part are good, of course you have the few who don't keep you up to date on the progress of your child until you get the F on a grade card. The sports are excellent, a lot of parent involvement and support. The administration needs to loosen up some and let the kids be kids and enjoy their high school years though. For the most part the students have a lot of school spirit and ten to get along fairly decently. I would recommend this school.

academically this school is horrible! But the kids there are friendly and open to new people. There are no cliques or big groups.The teachers are not very challenging and they are very boring!

I would not bother sending my son here for another year, as I care too much about his success in college to jeopardize it with a new and unrecognized school. Am I being harsh? Yes, but I've done my research, and there are plenty of better schools in the area which provide excellent extracurriculars along with good guidance counseling and strong academics. Consider Garces, East Bakersfield High, or BHS, and do what your child deserves!

After looking at several high schools in the area, Frontier stood out as the best by far. The teachers work really hard with the student and I have seen several go out of there way to help kids get back on track. I visited some classrooms and found that each room had it's own unique set up. I am impressed with the vision of the administration. They are innovative. When they make a policy, they really stick with it. Students like the school and there are few social problems that I can see.

Overall the school is great school, but it does have some flaws, but they could be fixed easily. A flaw is that the teachers don't bring out the best in the students, they teach to the level of the lowest student in the class. They don't really challenge the students. I am a student at Frontier and it's great, but it could be better. One good quality is that the students are much more friendly and their 'cliques' aren't as segregated as they are at other schools. There is less conflict between students because most are open minded and don't classify each other into different groups. And this makes the sorrounding environment much more comforting and peaceful.

I would say that Frontier's extracurricular activities are more than wonderful. There could be more parent involvement, but overall the activities are above average. Academics however, could use some work. Most teachers, especially in the math department, are clearly not doing their jobs correctly. The students are discouraged and not willing to try when it comes to various subjects.I believe there is soo much potential in those students if only they had more teachers they could depend on.(The AG department is wonderful!) Overall i think the school is a nice accomplishment with minor flaws that can certainly be worked out. I am pretty pleased with the school and my daughter is happy there.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) to test high school students' skills in English language arts and mathematics. The results for grade 10 students taking the test for the first time are displayed on GreatSchools profiles. The CAHSEE is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined by the state of California. Students must pass all parts of the CAHSEE in order to graduate from high school. If they do not pass it the first time, students have multiple opportunities to retake the test. The goal is for all students to pass both sections of the test.
