The ladies in the office are rude and disrespectful. Students shouldn't be scared to go to office and ask questions. If you don't like children then don't work at a school.

I have had lots of problems this year with this school. I moved to Kansas because I thought the schools were suppose to be great. I have a special needs child that I was scared to take to school everyday because she wasn't getting the help she needed. No regular IEP meetingslike are suppose to happen. There is a lady that works in the office that is very rude and shouldn't be around children. I basically feel like we have wasted a whole year of time and have got nothing but aggravation. Have called school board twice. Ridiculous! Trying to figure out how we can get into another school without moving.

My son loves teachers and students! I was surprised to read about the office staff comment because our family has never had anything but a positive experience. I am very pleased with the education he receives. He loves going to school everyday and that is saying a lot for a 13 year old!!

FT is not so great.... the office staff is not friendly at all, there is bullying that is not addressed . There is a few remarkable teachers that really do care, Mr. Arnold, Mrs. Harrison and Mr. Dietrich, to name a few but there would not be many more I would add to that list. I found most teachers to be not motivated or kind. Very happy that my children have moved on to highschool.

This school has been a wonderful experience for my daughter. Great teachers, principals and staff! Vice Principal Jennifer is the best and the Silver Team Teachers are Excellent! I was not from Kansas so I did not know what to expect from the school system and I have been pleasantly surprised!!!

I'm NOT a parent, but I used to attend school there and I would like to say that this school is wonderful teacher-wise and student-wise. The teachers are persitant in making sure that every student understands the work they are doing and also they make the students understand that a certain amount is expected of them. And if they do not fullfill their expectations then they are only dishonoring themselves!

This school is a diverse learning experience just waiting to happen to any student who needs or wants an oppurtunity to be included in a great school. Frontier may not be the newest school in Olathe, but it's prestige in academics, sports, Teachers and leadership is among the highest in Olathe. I reccomend this facility to anyone and everyone.
