The IB program encourages these traits in all students, which is important in a global society.

The school's approach is focused on attaining the elusive +1 level 1 status. This is a fine goal to have, but the students require an outlet of energy too. There are no sport programs in the school, the school teachers are diverse, the students are not, and sometimes the communication is slow, if at all, and not sure how safe the area is. Have seen adults gambling and hanging out on school property at different times of the day. Granted if the administration improved its communication with parents, addressed the safety concerns, and fought for sport activities as some of these highly rated schools i.e. Andrew Jackson and Skinner West, Frazier International would indeed become +1 level status school they are chasing.

My name is Patricia Smith. I graduated June of 1981 from here. I played volleyball from 4th to 8th grade. I loved this school. We had an awesome school song about Frazier after graduation. Thanks to the music teacher Mrs? Blyzirfer.

FRAZIER IS A GREAT SCHOOL.MY SON HAS ATTENDED FRAZIER SINCE THE THIRD GRADE,HE IS DOING WONDERFUL..THE SCHOOL IS CURRENTLY UNDER NEW LEADERSHIP,HOWEVER THE TORCH HAS BEEN PASSED TO A GREAT LEADER.HE IS PARENT FRIENDLY,UNDERSTANDS THE SOCIAL/EMOTIONAL PROBLEMS THAT THE STUDENTS COME TO SCHOOL WITH ON A DAILY BASIS,AND OFFER EXTRA HELP FOR THOSE STUDENTS THAT NEED THAT EXTRA HELP TO ADVANCE ACADEMICALLY.

My daughter just started Kindergarten at Frazier and she LOVES it. I am amazed with how much she has learned in only a month and a half. She entered Kindergarten unable to read and already she is reading sentences. Her math skills have also grown tremendously. Since it is such a small school, I feel like, as a parent, my voice really matters and the principal actually listens to parents' suggestions. Students have consistent access to computers and other interactive technology. My daughter especially loves Spanish and art class. Class sizes cap off at 25 in every grade, so students get all the attention they need. If you are looking for a school with very strong academics, where your child will not be lost in a crowd, I highly recommend applying for Frazier International.

Frazier is an outstanding school with a very hard working faculty, staff and administration. Everyone seems to have individual student's needs in mind. There is also a mutual respect between the students and adults in the building. The IB program helps students to relate to their learning and gives it a context. Although Frazier has great performance on the ISAT, they are not just a test focused school.

I have two boys in the school and I am pretty satisfied with the school. I do have concerns with the discipline policies of the school, (because there are no alternatives available) that could be due to the fact that the school is brand new. The curriculum is wonderful, the International Baccalaureate programme is known world wide and we are a prospective school. Finally, my experience has there has been good and I would recommend it for the parent who knows what their child's needs are and would be willing to work with the school to bring in resources. It is a brand new school to the system, only three years old.
