Frontier is probably one of the best schools in APS. Teachers are great. Very engaged with students. Very good programs for all levels of education. Definitely like the atmosphere around the school too. It's in a great neighborhood if you can find a house for sale. They sell quick, because of the school quality.
TRAFFIC SUCKS! To many kids in classroom- Wish APS had more money for additional school.
This school is a disgrace. The bullying goes on endlessly with no punishment to the bully. My child has a broken arm (broken in several places) because of this incessant bullying. He is a special needs child who has already gone through enough without being tortured by his classmates. If you have a child with any sort of special needs or an IEP, steer clear of this school! I wish I could go back in time and move into Cherry Creek school district just a few months sooner. It is a mistake I have made that I will regret for the rest of my life.
My son is currently in his 3rd year at Aurora Frontier and only one teacher at the school has ever been truly inspirational to him. The others were focused on nit-picking his performance to where he has no desire to attend. On preliminary testing last year he scored above the 90th percentile for the gifted, creative and talented program, but the teachers and administration have failed to appropriately address this even after we made several inquiries. To this date we still have not received a definitive answer regarding his placement in the program. Communication from the teachers this year has been well below expectations regarding homework. And one teacher gave the impression of being irritated when I called with questions about my sons homework assignment. The administration's actions on bullying are ridiculuos. When my son chose to defend himself last year from a bully, the dean of students told us that our son should have remained a victim. If actions are any indication of this rating, we are in the process of finding a better school.
I think it's a good school. The people are friendly and professional. I do have a problem with some of the parents of 'bussed-in' kids, though. I have been there a few times when these parents would get confrontational with the staff. The staff did all they could to de-escalate the situation but some parents would just be threatening and harassing the staff. Other than that, I believe the people at Aurora are good people who truly care for the children in their care. I came from CA and have seen other schools in action and these people, especially a 'Ms. Irma', have the patience of saints and hearts as big as Colorado. If she is any example, I have to say the staff, teachers and administrators are doing a great job! Also, I'd like to mention 'Ms. Kim'. She also has a sweet personality and appears quite competent.
I am a 8th grader at Frontier. I to me think it would be cooler if we had more room in the school and did have to see the little kids but thats how the school is. I started going to Frontier when it first open. I was in 5th grade. I have grown so much in the past years so in the school work Frontier is great. Yes, the teacher get on you but thats beause they want you to be ready for high school. I dont like everything about Frontier but I like how my learning has grown.
I absolutely love this school. The teachers are exceptional. I have a Kindergartner and a second grader and couldn't be more pleased.
This is the 2nd year my daughter has attended the school and I have 1 complaint. I am not that pleased on who they handle bullying as I feel they give too many chances to the bullying party. I am left with the only option of taking matters into my own hands and encouraging my daughter to defend herself. The staff is EXCELLENT! They are all compassionate to the childrens needs which is important. Parents seeking ways to manipulate the system to get into the Cherry Crk system are simply attempting to 'join the band wagon' vs giving their rightful school the chance it deserves. I worked in a Cherry Crk school & the staffs level of compassion doesnt compare. Parent involvement is VERY important to the success of school & most important, the child.
I am so sick of hearing the same lame excuse from parents about how bad Aurora schools are and how great Cherry Creek is. The bottom line is Aurora Frontier is a great school. My kids have went there since it opened and I have no complaints what so ever. The staff is great and they really do care for all the students and do not pull any punches. The classes are challenging and I'm impressed with what my kids are learning. Kudos to the teachers and kids at Aurora Frontier. Keep up the great work.
Well I really don't know what to say about this school, sure some teachers are good but what about the other staff? This is just like any other shool in Aurora! So please do not be fooled just becasue it is a new school! I am a student At Aurora Frontier and it's my last years here and have been going to this school for now three years, and those three years of my life were like a nightmare... I feel as if this school feels like discipline is the answer to everything and so i dissagree. And no I not a bad student and many students in our school has read this and totally agree w/me. So the choice is your's of where you want your child to go, but I just thought I would give my opina and so I did.
This school's teacher/student ratio is way too high 1/34. Teachers are demanding but don't respond when e-mailed for support. Teachers are expected to share in administrative duties that require substitute teachers be in their place once a week. Safety and bully-proofing has improved, but kids are still sent out during rain and snow for recess - not acceptable to me.
A great new building doesn't change old Aurora Public School habits. Parents are thinking twice and discovering creative ways to get thier kids into nearby Cherry Creek Public Schools, and there is a reason for it. Mediocrity seems to be the word of the day at Aurora Frontier. Public schools, in general, are entirely too 'PC'. One suggestion: challenge the children, let them actually 'play' on the playground during recess, focus more on accomplishments of the children and not how other children less motivated might 'feel'.
I cant say enough good things about this school. Its only in its second year, it is in a great neighborhood. the school itself is excellent. The principal is very good and really spends a lot of time with parents and the kids. The whole staff I have dealt with from the secretary to the teachers have been wonderful. I would highly recommend this school. It is not a typical Aurora school by any means.
I love everything about this school. The neighborhood its in, the facility itself, the principal, teachers. office staff have all been outstanding. I couldnt have been happier with sending my young daughtger to this school.
