I love Frontier! My son has been there since Kindergarden and is now in 2nd grade. Mrs. O'Sullivan is the best! Excellent communication and the early/aftercare staff are wonderful. I have nothing but good things to say about this school.

My son started at FrontierElementary in the kindergarten with Mrs. Foreman., He really had a great year in her class! She is a wonderful teacher, very warm and caring. His first grade was in Mrs. Drake's class. She is a top notch, very professional and caring who seems to really enjoy helping and nurture my son's well being and learning potential. Now my son is in second grade in Mrs. Norack's class. My son really likes her and think she is funny. He has told me how nice she is to him and he feels happy being in her class. I met her and has seen her a few times when I pick up my son from school, and she is very nice. The principal, Susan Groth is also "top notch"! My son and I really like her and know that she's doing an awesome job as being in charge of a really great school! She is great with all of the kid's., she has always been very nice, always smiling! I must say as a mother to an amazing young boy, we feel blessed to be a part of a wonderful school with caring and compassionate teachers., my son has learned so much and he loves his school.... that makes me feel good as a parent. Ms. Kimberly & Ms Wanda in SAC are awesome too! Thank you Frontier!!

My son started kindergarten here last year, and has just completed the first grade. He really learned a lot last year from Mrs. Foreman, and this year he had Mrs. Drake, and has done excellent. I especially love the way Mrs. Drake keeps both parents informed by writing in his journal. This is such a help, and lets you know how your child is doing on a daily basis. I can't say enough for these two ladies and wish them the very best for many years to come.

This is a wonderful school. My daughter started here this year after being in a private school for several years, and we like this school MUCH more than the private one!

My son had Mrs. O'Brian last year and she was the most amazing teacher. Pushing my son to his full potential yet she did it with such ease and patience. She is an amazing person/teacher. All parents should wish for a teacher like this to start off their child's learning.

Frontier is an Awesome School! I want to respond to the parent who wrote about the school clubs at Frontier. Frontier has more clubs offered to students than any other elementary school that I know of. Frontier has over 800 students and the fairest way that Frontier can think of when picking students, is to do a lottery system so each student is treated equal. Frontier Fine Art Teachers are the best I have ever seen! Also, there are different clubs offered to Frontier students after winter break, please get your information correct before writing your review. FYI, When Mr. Alfonso was principal at Frontier the clubs were picked the same exact way. Thank you to all the teachers and staff of Frontier for always doing a great job!

Frontier continues to be amazing. My children are in Mrs. O'Brian's class this year. The children come home so full of information they are eager to share! This school has amazing teachers. The administration is awesome too. They actually called me one day to ask me if my kids were being picked up by someone else because they heard them talking about it! I had forgot to call them. They called me! If that is not concern then I don't know what is! Mr. Alfonso has left to the middle school next door. The only reason I don't miss him much is because my daughter goes there. So I know she's in good hands. Plus, the staff at Frontier continues to be amazing.

My daughter has attend Frontier Elementary for 2 years and she has had two of the best teachers (Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Kohler). Both teachers were very accessible and I always received a timely response to any questions I may have had. I felt that I was kept up to date with her progress over and above the mid-term progress reports. I am a full time parent and am not fortunate enough to be able to volunteer my time as much as I would like, but find that the staff at Frontier (including the SACC team) have made school 'fun' and my child loves to go to school. Thank you to all at Frontier Elementary!

I have had a great experience with Frontier Elem. this year. I have been priviledged to be an active part in the PTA as well as a room parent. I have found Mr. Alfonso to be totally devoted to the students and school activities. Mrs. Abel was my daughters teacher and she has been amazing. The staff has always been very friendly and helpful. I am proud that my son will also be attending next school year and I will continue to be active in the school as well.

This school/principal (don't let the A grade fool you) went south as of this year. Closing parent involvement out. Cannot TRUST what goes on behind doors with rules changing daily. I pulled my child out mid year and placed her in private school but yet I can see this school from my home. I would rather drive a distance and pay 8k than to have child at Frontier. NO COMMUNICATION! This is my opinion and that of my dear friends~ many of which are pulling their kids out to home school, charter school, gifted school and or private school. I got a phone call telling me my child will be moved out of accelerated class because I had a complaint. I took matters into MY OWN HANDS and pulled my accelerated child right out of Frontier MYSELF!

All three of my kids have had the privilege of going to the best school ever...'Frontier Elementary' The dress code I could do with out, The new safety rule I thought was going to be a big deal for me but it really isn't. We have all adjusted and we know it is for a good cause. As long as it still feels like school and not jail we are all happy.If I could change anything it would be the traffic situation and educate some of the ignorant drivers. We could use a better pick up and drop off arrangement. The school is beautiful, the teachers and staff are wonderful, even the crossing guards are great.After 5 years we are all like family.

We've been at Frontier for five years now, and, until this year I would have been a cheerleader. I was an enthusiastic volunteer up until last month. Unfortunately, Mr. Alfonso has a new policy that I find frustrating, and that I feel interferes with my relationship with the school and with my job as a parent. I suggest talking to lots of other parents before making this leap.

The academic program is just excellent!, discipline, class sizes, qualified and dedicated teachers, what else can we ask as a parents? My son's teacher work one-on-one with him and boosted his confidence as a reader. Thanks Mr. Campbell for bringing the best in my child and giving him the encouragement and confidence he needs to go out into the world! M.E.

Both my children have gone to Frontier Elementary since kindergarden. The teachers work hard to bring out the best in my children. My kids want to go to school each day - a far cry from my experience with other Florida schools. With an active PTA and a variety of afterschool clubs, Frontier has created a friendly, positive environment for my children to grow both socially and academically.

I always thought that when my son started school that he would go to a private school. We come from Miami and the schools in Dade County don't even compare to the schools in Palm Beach County. I am so glad that we put him in Frontier Elementry. He has learned so much. I feel that children that start off in a good school, will continue to do good. The staff is awesome! It is great that the parent/teacher involvement with the class, students, and staff make a world of difference.

We have had 5 fantastic years at Frontier. The solid academic program keeps Frontier an A school year after year. SUPERIOR environment and faculty. Office staff is extra friendly and helpful. Principals, Guidance, Phys. Ed., and more go the extra mile for the kids. Wide variety of after school clubs to choose from. Frontier is also very supportive and accommodating to the local Girl Scout and Boy Scout Troops. This school is clean; interior is beautifully painted with murals; it's a safe and comforting place to be.

Hello parents, My daughter has been in this school for two years. The academic program is excellent, their honor roll is an on going goal and achievement that a great percent of the kids achieve. The staff from principal, to teachers, to student are modivated and dedicated. As for activities, the participation seems very important since there is different clubs the kids can attend. My daughters favorite is drama, but it hasn't stopped her from joining basketball, guitar lessons and track. All I can say is that I wish all the school in her future will be as caring and dedicated to the needs of our kids like Frontier Elementary is. Thank You Principal Alfonso and Staff.

I am very happy with my granddaughter going to Frontier Elementary School. She has been going there 3 years now, and I am very happy with the academics there and the principal, Mr. Alfonso is always there for the children and staff. I think the parent involement is very high compared to other schools. I am very happy with the music, art and pe activities. The best thing too is the involvement and co-operation with the parents how they are following the dress code, since that is very important to the school and children attending Frontier Elementary. I rate the school very highly.

I am very happy with Frontier Elem. We transfered from another district mid year, and my child was made welcome while keeping pace academically with a much larger school distict. The princiapl is great and really loves his job. I recommend this school highly. It is A rated and very clean! A very safe environment for your kids.

Words cannot describe how happy we were with this school. We were afraid of putting our child into a public school for the quality of education, however we do not feel that our child could have gotten any better education in any school, whether private or public. Well done to the principal, Mr. Alfonso for keeping a tight ship, and in particular, Mrs. Price - a phenominal teacher with whom our daughter absolutely adores.

We think that Frontier is a wonderful elementary school. The principal of the school is very involved in developing a high standard academic program. The class sizes have been reduced this year. The teachers seem all very experienced and very dedicated. They work well together to create a team enviroment. They have a very good music and art program. Good nutrition and healthy eating habits are practised. The sports activities far exceed many programs in other schools that I have seen. Parent involvement is at the top of the list also. I have never seen so many parents volunteer their time as I have seen at this school.

Frontier Elementary is the best school I have seen in Palm Beach County! It's all because of the phenomenal staff-from Principal David Alfonso to the maintenance staff. I couldn't wish for a more involved, caring, motivated, group to influence my child in these formative years. The students are great and parent involvement is beyond any other school I've known. Frontier is what every other school should strive to be!
